The big TV switch-off happens tonight! (or does it?)

Alan Sykes writes in to say that: The BBC switch-over from our current S.E.S. Astra 1N and 2N satellite transponders to the new replacement Astra 2E “tight-beam” senders will take place at 2 a.m. tonight, into Thursday morning. This move is likely to blank-out most of Europe’s reception of BBC TV programmes, and its several radio channels. See this web-page:-

Eeee by gum, you can’t trust anybody nowadays. Not even your friendly local Sky installer. I refrain from commenting more on the subject… but a word of advice to mark your LNB on your dish if you live in a block. Seeing as mine still isn’t working it’s a moot point.
