|Test card as seen on Sky|
Test transmissions commenced on Freeview channel 8 from London's Crystal Palace transmitter at the beginning of the month. Now viewers with a Sky box can tune into test transmissions via the 'add other channels' function.
The service is broadcast as "free to view" rather than "free to air". This means that the channel is encrypted but available to view for free with a Sky box and a valid viewing card. Free to view channels cannot be received on Freesat receivers, which can only receive "free to air" channels.
Citing rights issues, the channel will not be broadcast free to air for Freesat viewers to avoid any signal overspilling outside of the UK.
It is expected that London Live will be added to Sky channel 117 on the 31st March in London only.
Parameters for Sky boxes ONLY:
