A more regionalised ITV service is on its way to Freesat viewers, after several ITV subregions went free to air this week.
ITV subregions covering the north of the "Meridian" [South] TV region, the west of the Anglia TV region and the Yorkshire East [Lincolnshire/East Yorkshire] region, along with the Central South West variant are now free to air on satellite. ITV1+1 Yorkshire is also free to air.
In addition, ITV1 HD Central joins ITV1 HD variants for the Granada, London and Meridian TV regions in being free to air.
The Free to Air ITV regions are found at 10994.00 H on Astra 1N. Central and Meridan HD variants are on 10936.00 V.
The Freesat EPG has not yet incorporated the changes in the affect regions, but with the removal of Sky's encryption, viewers in postcodes served by the additional services can expect their previously assigned ITV region to be amended and replaced in the Freesat line up in due course.
Earlier this year, ITV1 Central East went free to air, but it took several months before it replaced Central West in the Freesat line up.
