Swedish TV8 will be on 5 degrees east (as all Swedish channels), both
digital (Sirius 2) and in clear PAL (on TELE-X, Kanal Fem freq) when
Sirius 2 is active.
The launch for Sirius 2 is August 28.
The THOR 2 channels I have heard about is:
Sky News and Documentation
Murdoch's Fox Kids Network
Dutch music channel TMF
Canal Digital - Multichoice Nordic/Canal Plus digital package
(Filmnet etc) currently on Astra, but vill move to THOR2 and will use
the Conax system.
At least the first four will start as analogue (D2Mac)channels.

I saw it too and it WAS the most interesting thing I have seen on 5
My conclusion from what I witnessed was that region 1 feed failed and
the Astra sat feed has only one mpeg rx. with no auto change over
unlike the terrestrial Tx's which have fully auto backup.
