The shopping network is testing on the Freeview satellite service

Probably locked out on official receivers at this stage

This morning there's a second Freeview slot carrying the same programme. It ID is svc 1917 which I think used to be used by Sommet Sports.

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
