Anybody else notice that for tha last week or more Sky Sports 1 via UHF is coming through un encrypted? I dont have a sky box or anything like that. We I bought my TV and tuned it in using the arial on the roof it put in all the sky ones as well but they had the usual black white smear all encrypted. But las week I was flicking throught ht e channels and up pops Sky Sports 1. It was there last nigth again so I watch some of the replay of the Aus v Wales Test

Any body else notice?

It's something that happens every now and again. Apparently to give people a bit of a temptation to subscribe when they realise what they're missing out on.

Notice that the unencrypted Sky Sports on UHF does not have the Sky Sports 1 bug on it.

Found this on the Sky Site

March 30th 11.30pm

With the temporary loss of the Optus satellite we have made SKY Sport temporarily available “free to air” on our UHF network. To be able to access it you will need to tune your TV set to the SKY Sport channel

How to Tune into SKY Sport

SKY Transmits on the UHF band in most City and provincial centers.

Turn your television on.

  1. On your remote control, press the button you have chosen for SKY Sport (we suggest 8, which is probably available).
  2. Open the control panel on your television.
  3. Press the 'pre-set/tuning' button. (Refer to your television manual if you have one available)
  4. Start tuning by pressing + (up) on the tuning control. (Remember, you will find SKY on the UHF band).
  5. When you have found SKY Sport press the 'pre-set/memory' button again to lock the channel into the number you have chosen on your remote. For best reception a UHF is usually required if you have no UHF antenna the results are likely to be a grainy quality picture or no picture at all

I think that is an old message from when Optus B1 was getting towards the end of it's life. It was March last year from memory....

Read Sky Sports bug as Sky Sports logo in top right corner. Apologies for using an in-house terminology. Currently logo is back on
