How to continue watching Channel AKA using a Freesat box

Following this week's changes to the Freesat channel list, Channel AKA fans can access the channel via non-Freesat mode.

The channel spent just under five months on the Freesat Electronic Programme Guide before disappearing abruptly. It's sister channels Clubland and Planet Pop remain on Freesat channels 510 and 511.

To watch Channel AKA, viewers must access non-Freesat mode via the tuning menu. The channel is available using the following parameters:

Frequency:  11261
Symbol Rate: 27500
Polarisation: H
FEC: 2/3
Eutelsat 28A
Channel AKA

About non-Freesat mode:
  • You'll need the first line of data (in a light blue background) when using non-Freesat mode to scan the relevant transponder. Non-Freesat mode is usually available in the menu, often under "set-up, system or installation" options. Consult your manual for more options. For details of how to use non-Freesat mode on Humax and Manhattan receivers, please click here and scroll to the bottom section, entitled "how do I go into non-Freesat mode".

  • All listings on this page assume you are using a satellite dish pointed at 28 degrees East to receive the regular Freesat service. 
  • Information, including frequency details correct as at 15/04/2013.
