How To Receive ITV HD Programming On Sky HD March 7th, 2010
If you have Sky HD then you’ll probably wish like me that the ITV HD service was available through your subscription, let’s face it it’s not as if they do not charge enough! It would seem that the ITV HD service is only available on Freesat (via the red button), frustrating considering that ITV are carrying some of the latest FA Cup matches and the traditional SD signal broadcast on Sky is woeful. What a lot of people do not realise is that it is possible to receive the ITV HD service by using your existing Sky+ HD box. Read on.
To get ITV HD on Sky, go to Services > Options > Add channels, and enter the following details:
- Frequency (GHz): 11.427
- Polarisation: H
- Symbol Rate (Mbaud): 27.5
- FEC: 2/3
Then select Find Channels and add channel 10510. You can watch it via Other Channels.
Note: This trick appears to work on the new Sky+ HD EPG guide only. Also, you will not be able to record programs using the Sky+ function or find the channel in the EPG, you’ll have to manually select the ITV HD channel by selecting channel 10510 in the Other Channels section.
