The shopping network is testing on the Freeview satellite service

Probably locked out on official receivers at this stage

It will be interesting to see what the infomercial channel is called and why? Not too sure if it's a simulcast of The Shopping Channel, if it is then no idea why Kordia will do that, just take the SKY feed. Although I don't really care haha

It's The Shopping network, same channel broadcast as on Sky. Most likely they will ditch paying X$ per year to be on Sky as a commercial customer. Then a new arrangement for Sky to take the feed from the Freeview t.p
