Why some UK channels are not for free on satellite / Freesat but they are in the UK on Freeview?

Why some UK channels are not for free on satellite / Freesat but they are in the UK on Freeview?

Hardly a day goes by without someone contact me asking for the frequency for Sky Sports News on Freesat.

There is no Sky Sports News frequency for Freesat receivers.

Although Sky Sports News is available for free on Freeview in the UK, on satellite Sky Sports News is a PAY TV channel only, and requires a monthly subscription to view. So even if you do input the Sky Sports News frequency of 12148 H 27.5 2/3 onto your Freesat receiver you still will not be able to watch it as you require a Sky SUBSCRIPTION.

There are many UK TV channels that are like this, that are available for free in the UK on Freeview, but not available on Freesat.

These channels include:
Sky 3
Yesterday
Dave
Dave ja vu
Virgin1
Five USA
Fiver
Quest
4Music
Viva
Sky Sports News

Some of these channels are available without a monthly Sky subscription, but do need a free to view card (also known as a freesatformsky viewing card.) These channels are Five USA, Fiver, Viva, Sky 3.

This also proves that you cannot receive Freeview in Spain. Freeview is a UK only TV service transmitted from the land based transmitters in the UK. These Freeview signals just do not reach Spain. So if you get a UK TV satellite installer who says they can get you Freeview, dont believe them as they cannot - test the installers by asking if the above channels will be available for free just like they are on Freeview.
