    Hi, I recently had Sky Mini-dish/ Box standard package installed. However I am unable to receive some freeview channels. The ones I am interested in are BBC3 & 4, ITV, UTV2 & 3 & 4. I have gone through the basic 'Add on chanels' process, but no joy. I have the basic SKY card, but am at a loss to access these channels. Surely I'm just misssing some basic process. ( this is my first time with SKY Mini-dish etc.).

    Hi ManofS, It appears to be installed correctly. I have standard Sky package with sports and movies. I heard I need certain frequency numbers to key in for freeview?

    They should just work - b4 i dropped sky completely, i was using it with the basic subscription first and had all the channels THEN NO subscription at all and i was still receiving the basic FTA channels with no problems or set up issues.

    I think it's a Sky problem - i'd ring their helpline and find out what the deal is
