Freesat adds 5 channels from Channel 5

Freesat is adding a range of channels from Channel 5 to the platform, effective immediately: Channel 5+1 , 5 USA , 5 USA+1 , 5* and 5*+1 .

Freesat viewers will be able to watch comedy, sport, classic American action movies and popular dramas on 5 USA, whilst the addition of 5* to the service will give access to soaps, films, entertainment, drama and documentaries.

Adding Channels 5+1 , 5 USA+1 and 5*+1 means that Freesat viewers can watch shows an hour after they’ve transmitted – adding to the flexibility Freesat viewers already have.
