If you have a SKY card and a small dish (i.e. 90cm-1m) you can now watch ITV 1 without the need for a BIG dish.

How to do it?

Steps to get ITV:
1. Click "Services"
2. Click 4 "System Setup"
3. Click 4 "Add Channels"
4. Change Frequency to 11973, Polarisation V, Symbol Rate 27.5, FEC 2/3
5. Go down to "Find Channels" and Press select
6. You should now see ITV1 Central S amoung the list of stations, go down to it and press the yellow button to store then press Select

When you want to watch ITV you will have:
1. Go to "Services"
2. 7 "Other Channels"
3. Go to ITV1 Central and press select

This works for me on a 1 metre dish with a standard Sky box

Thanks for the information.  I got all the way through the steps, but was then asked for my Sky viewing card which I don't have with me. (I normally only watch CNN and a few other stations on satellite, so don't need a card).  Presumably a current Sky Freesat card will work OK?  I will bring one out next time.

Any current (working) SKY card will do.

It may help someone as to where you are pointing your small dish and at what satellite.
