Default BBC free to air on Astra 2D as of today

Over the past few hours the BBC has been removing encryption from its
digital TV services broadcast on the Astra 2D satellite. The process began
at 0400 UTC and is expected to be completed within the next couple of hours.
This means that, for the first time, TV viewers within the footprint of the
Astra 2D satellite can view BBC transmissions on any satellite receiver
without the need for a viewing card and Sky digibox. The full range of BBC
regional variations is available. The full list of stations and settings is:

10773 H SR 22000 FEC 5/6
BBC One England
BBC Two England
BBC News 24
BBC Four
CBBC
CBeebies
BBC Three
BBC One Northern Ireland

10788 V SR 22000 FEC 5/6
BBC One West Midlands
BBC One North West
BBC One East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire
BBC One Yorkshire & North Midlands
BBC One East Midlands
BBC One East England

10803 H SR 22000 FEC 5/6
BBC One Wales
BBC Two Wales
BBC One Scotland
BBC Two Scotland
BBC Two Northern Ireland

10818 V SR 22000 FEC 5/6
BBC One West England
BBC One South East
BBC One South England
BBC One South West
BBC One North East & Cumbria
BBC One Oxford

10847 V SR 22000 FEC 5/6
BBC One Cambridge

Ray Woodward in the UK also reports that BBCi (the Interactive service) can
also be seen via Free To Air receivers (10.847GHz V and 12.441 GHz V). BBCi
is "hidden" from the Sky Digibox "Add Channels" facility. On a Digibox the
service is accessed automatically by pressing the red button on the remote
when tuned to a BBC channel.

I'm saying it's great, but I'm a Sky subscriber, but I can now watch Yorkshire
local news on BBC1.
