Tests have been spotted for...
I don't have any further information so feel free to ignore me/accuse Photoshop/whatever until we get something more concrete. Still early days so I'm not sure if it's finalised.
Small update on this:
For those interested, it is now testing on satellite on SID 1639 at 12.188 H, SR 27.500, FEC 2/3, DVB-S2, 8PSK. Note that it is encrypted so don't expect to be able to see anything just yet!
The channel is HD only.
It is sharing capacity with Sky Sports Box Office HD. Given there are Box Office events on 26th October and 9th November, it is likely that this will launch between these dates and only last for a matter of days before closing. Because it is sharing capacity (like BBC Four/CBeebies), it cannot be on-air at the same time as Sky Sports Box Office HD.
data starts 5pm tomorrow (that doesn't necessarily mean it launches at 5pm tomorrow!):
