Has Challenge come off of Freesat? Channel 145 ( +1 on 146 too)

Tried to look at it earlier and it states - like BBC3 & BBC4 during the day - that the channel is scrambled or not available. I thought it is on 24 hours??

Still available on Freeview.

I sometimes get that about there being no signal or it's scrambled but it usually comes back eventually.Don't know about Freesat though as I'm on Freeview.
If it's been withdrawn from the 'free to air' channels transmitted from the Astra satellites (which Freesat simply offers a subset of) then I'm surprised that nobody has updated the relevant Wikipedia page, which still lists it:

I'm further surprised that it's not been removed from the channel list on the official Freesat website:

Most of all though, I'm surprised that Freesat is still listed as a platform on the Challenge TV website!

So my guess is that it's just a temporary glitch. (Unlike some other satellite channels, Challenge TV is actually owned by Sky. So it would seem unlikely that they'd withdraw the channel from the Astra satellites unless, for example, they needed to free up a channel for use by a new service).
