BBC Channels to move to Astra 1N Friday 24th February 2012

Origianlly posted at:

The BBC channels, BBC1, BB2, BBC3, BBC4, BBC1HD, BBCHD, CBBC, CBeebies, will be moving from Astra 2D to Astra 1N this coming Friday.

There will be no change of frequencies.

The BBC channels will be using the same frequencies as they currently do.

However, this will mean that reception of these BBC channels in Spain will be much better than currently.

In some areas, they should be able to be received on a small 80cm or 1m satellte dish, where are previously they may not have been available even on a 2.4m satellite dish.

If you are unable to receive these channels, then no reception of these channels may require dish realignment, a new LNB or a larger satellite dish - such as a 1m satellite dish.

This follows the recent move of the ITV and channel 4 group of channels to Astra 1N in the last few weeks.
