Has anyone came across the channel Fil4+1?

So far I've came across this 1 plus another 3 channels, these 3 are not identified and as Fil4+1 display "this service is currently scrambled"

Just curious if anyone knows what they are or are going to be?

Many test channels can be put on the cable network, but also there are duplicate channels for when they close down 1 position and launch another!

e.g just hyperthetical!!

sky 1 = transponder20 freq 452.000

They need to add 5 channels to transponder 20 and move sky 1 to fit on network properly.

so sky1 old position evenutally becomes dead and an channel error!
If you rescanned you'd pick up the new position for e.g

sky1 = Transponder24 freq = 553.000

What you could be seeing is either new test channels, or new positions being prepared before they plan a move.

Only other possibility is there going VOD or Video On Demand.

All the channels we can get are NVOD or Near video on demand.
VOD is a new system and works via the interactive buttons (RED, BLUE etc)
to order and is a 2 way tracking system. There is methods to receive these
film channels but fingerprints are left and is much more risky in my opinion.

hope this helps!
