Satellite Update: CBS UK channels all in one place in space

Free-to-air channels CBS Action, CBS Reality and Horror Channel have been moved to a new satellite transponder, requiring some users to retune.

The changes mean that from now on, all CBS channels are located on the same satellite transponder. with CBS Action, CBS Reality and Horror Channel joining CBS Drama, CBS Reality+1 and Horror Channel+1 on the same frequency.

While most Sky and Freesat users won't need to make any changes, a small number of viewers who have lost the channels may need to reboot their satellite receiver. Users of generic free-to-air satellite receivers, as is common in the Republic of Ireland will need to retune their equipment to the new parameters, where all three channels are now located

Satellite:    Astra 2F (UK Spotbeam)
Frequency:    11343
Polarisation: Vertical
Symbol Rate:  27500 (27.5 Mbaud)
FEC:          5/6
Mode:         DVB-S, QPSK

For viewers in continental Europe, the move means Horror Channel has changed from broadcasting on a pan-European beam to a UK spotbeam, reducing overspill coverage outside of the north-west corner of Europe.
