ITV/STV/UTV satellite manual tuning information

Last updated: 28/02/2020

Use the tuning parameters on this page to manually add ITV, STV and UTV and ITV offshoots to any satellite receiver in the UK and Ireland tuned to the Astra 28.2°E satellite. (Any system set up for Sky or Freesat is suitable).

This information is also for Sky users who want to add different ITV regions via Sky's other channels menu.


  • How to use the information: Use the different parameters listed below, such as "frequency" and "symbol rate" to tune your receiver. Multiple ITV services are broadcast together on the same frequency. Listings are in frequency order. HD channels first, then SD channels.
  • Label: Most ITV regions are now labelled "ITV" or "ITV HD", so use the service ID on receivers that show this information to identify the correct feed.
  • Symbol rates may appear differently on some receivers. For example "23000" becomes "23.0 Mbaud" on some receivers.
