Take note everybody, the new Astra 2F satellite went online today, 23 November. You should now retune your receiver. I have taken this from their website:
'ASTRA 2F, the latest ASTRA satellite and the 52nd from operator SES, is now operational at 28.2°E. ASTRA 2F was launched in September to provide direct-to-home broadcasting across Europe and sub-Saharan Africa – in particular to the UK and Ireland – as well as high speed satellite internet for SES Broadband. ASTRA 2F is the first of a new generation of craft at 28.2°E to replace the existing satellites at this position'
For people worried about the rumours that Freesat would disappear before Christmas, today is the day that would have happened. Mind you, if the Mayans were right and we've only got until 21 December, better not worry too much about it then.
