    good channel, unfortunately as the admin guys will tell you, its a subscription only channel so the likelyhood of it appearing on here are extremely thin.

    I believe you lol... Just surprised as I did think it FTA. When you have Freesat you can manually tune to the channel

    I believe what you are watching through your freesat box, as you say you have manually tuned it, is a version of sci-fi channel that is meant for viewers outside of the UK, although the channel broadcasts in english the main footprint for this channel is aimed at mainland Europe outside the UK & Eire, Eurosport is also available in a similiar way via Freesat but am not going into any of the technicalities of how you would recieve it as again its not the version available to UK subscription viewers and some of the programmes shown can be different.
