 satellite change over


Fortunately since the loss of the other channels we have had no further losses over the Christmas period. In fact we seem to find that many people are of the opinion “well that is it we are OK, it has gone very quiet, no need to worry.”The reason why it has gone very quiet is due to the fact that SES (satellite operators for Astra) has been on skeleton staff throughout the Christmas period. Contrary to that we have had feedback from SES that they have to complete all their work by end of January.


You may have seen details from a BBC blog outlining that any changes they are going to make will be 2nd quarter of 2013. However once again, in contradiction to this other sources tell us that the BBC does not have any control over which satellite they go on and when. This is all decided upon by SES. And even if they did hang out until then that does not count for the ITV channels and the other FREESAT channels.
