List of free-to-air channels at 28°E
This is a list of all of the free-to-air channels that are currently available via satellite from SES Astra satellites located at 28.2 °E (Astra 2A/2B/2D/1N) and Eutelsat's Eurobird 1 satellite at 28.5°E. These are the same group of satellites used for the Sky pay-TV platform and the Freesat free-to-air platform, therefore existing installations for these platforms would not require a realignment of the satellite dish or the purchase of any additional equipment. New capacity has been added so new channels can launch free to air via astra 1n.

List of channels on Zattoo
Zattoo is a peer-to-peer Internet Protocol Television system[1] with offices located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and in Zurich, Switzerland.[2] It is available on computer, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and runs on the Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems. The basic channel resolution is 352×288 and 480×288 in wide screen with a downstream rate amounting to 500 kBps. In high quality the resolution is 576×528 and the downstream rate of around 1.2 MBps. In opposition to the standard channels, the high quality channel uses the H.264 video codec.[3] For several years after its development Zattoo's number of channels has fluctuated. Some were removed due to disputes with Warner Bros. and Universal Studios about copyrightsuch as MTV, Viva, Nick and Comedy Central.[4][5] Zattoo currently has 157 different channels,[6] excluding 12 only available in the pay-per-view "Zattoo Foreign Language Bundles".[7] For most countries, except Denmark, a free registration is necessary to view channels.[3] Since August 2008 channels are available in a high quality version. Switzerland was the first country to introduce high quality channels, with 20 available at first.[8] Currently the 27 channels in high quality are available only in Switzerland, but it is expected that the high quality channels will become available in other countries such as Germany.[9] To view the high quality channels a "HiQ membership" is required, subject to a charge.[10] Zattoo is currently available in six European countries (Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom) and one country in America, the United States. Since 2007 Poland and Austria were expected to be included, but they have not yet been added.[11] Zattoo cancelled their contracts with Norway in February 2009[12] and also with Belgium a month later.[13] Both cancellations were due to the small amount of

user subscriptions which prevented a viable service.[12][13] Since 2008 the channels in Denmark, which were previously free, turned to pay-per-view because of the five fold increase in broadcasting fees.[14][15] Users of Zattoo can only view channels in countries they are subscribed in. Only eight of the countries above connect to Zattoo and, if in another country, the software will prevent connection[16] with the help of its IP address location capability.[17]

List of television stations in the United Kingdom
This is a list of television stations in the United Kingdom available on digital terrestrial, satellite and cable systems. Some channels have a "timeshift" service, i.e. the same programming (and usually advertisements as well) broadcast one or two hours later to give viewers another chance to catch a favourite programme. These channels are shown underneath the original channel number. Channels shown in bright green are available without a subscription, and are therefore free-to-air. Those which are in a paler green can only be accessed via a viewing card.
