ITV/STV/UTV Manual Tuning for Satellite Viewers

  • Your guide to HD and standard definition services from ITV, STV and UTV via satellite.

Other regional services in the UK can be accessed on Sky, Freesat and generic free-to-air satellite TV receivers via manual tuning.

Here you'll find resources to help you find and tune in these services. All services are broadcast from the Astra 2 satellite system at 28.2 degrees East, the satellite that Sky and Freesat dishes should already be pointing at.

The services are broadcast on a UK spotbeam, meaning that satellite reception beyond the British Isles and near continent may be difficult or impossible.
