Curious because zenkarma was insistent that being able to receive ch5 then new changes wouldn’t affect us…I inquired further.
This was the reply
A Handful of ITV1 regions (in SD and HD) are on the same satellite beam as Five SD. So in theory if you can get C5 SD then you should also be able to get those ITV1 regions also.
And it is only some BBC HD channels (BBC News HD, BBC4HD, BBC One HD Scotland, BBC One HD Wales) on the same satellite as C5 (SD)…not any others..
BUT the majority of BBC and ITV channes are NOT onthe same satellite as C5 (SD)…which is why you will not be able to receive them.
So, sorry zenkarma, seems you were totally incorrect.
