Lost BBC Radio stations.

Just wondering if anyone else has lost BBC 1, 2, 3, and 4 radio stations today. We normally listen through the television via sattelite but apparently the BBC has reduced the areas where the signal can be picked up or some technical reason which is beyond me.

Been listening to 6Music most of the day and not had any problems. We do stream via internet though so not using a satellite connection.

Re: Lost BBC Radio stations.

Can at the moment still get them via the internet, but speaker quality not very good. I fear this is the good old BBC getting their own back because we don't have to pay a UK licence so they are limiting reception to the UK, or I could be wrong.

Re: Lost BBC Radio stations.

I would retune, are you missing any TV channels. They are moving BBC channels around at the moment.

Hi

What satellite decoder are you using?

I would re boot your decoder as nothing has changed on these stations and the Astra satellite is not yet fully in place.
