ITV4 on Sky hitch

Last updated : 02 November 2005 By Reggie Holdsworth
It has been announced that ITV4 will not officially be launced on Sky until next Monday, too late to watch Boro's UEFA Cup tie with Dnipro on Thursday.

However, for one night only (tonight) ITV is pulling its Men & Motors channel to enable Sky to show the lauch night programs which include the Chelsea v Real Betis Champions League game.

But don't despair, it would appear that there is a way to program the channel manually. The following is taken from

. . . Sky viewers will still be able to view ITV4 by adding the channel manually. To do so, press services, then 4 (system setup) and 4 (add channels). Enter the frequency 10.758, a polarisation of V, a symbol rate of 22.0 (use the left/right arrow buttons) and an FEC of 5/6, then select 'Find channels'. From the list that appears, select 10072 and press the yellow button, then select to store. The channel will now be accessible via services, then the 'Other Channels' menu.

If it doesn't work you'll just have to go to the game!!!
