Seven years late... UTV+1 testing on satellite

Update | UTV+1 has begun testing on satellite, paving the way for satellite users in Northern Ireland to timeshift Northern Ireland's main commercial channel.

The +1 channel first launched back in 2011 on Freeview and Virgin Media in the province.

Tests began today following the closure of ITV Encore+1, which previously utilised the bandwidth.

Update: UTV+1 was added to Sky and Freesat week commencing 21st May 2018 for viewers in Northern Ireland. Elsewhere it can be manually tuned in using the following parameters:

Satellite:     Astra 2E
Frequency:     10906
Polarisation:  Vertical
Symbol Rate:   22000 (22Mbaud)
FEC:           5/6
Service ID:    10231
Test transmissions may change parameters or cease without notice.
