    Important changes to BBC TV frequencies this weekend - 18/10/2010 - Spain

    There are some important changes happening on the BBC frequencies, that will may affect your BBC reception in the Costa Blanca, Communidad Valencia, and Spain. YOu may have to reprogramme your satellite receiver with these new "frequency codes" for some BBC TV regions.

    BBC1 West (Bristol)
    BBC1 Channel Islands
    BBC1 East (West) (Cambridge)

    are all leaving their current frequency, and moving to the frequency currently used by BBC2 England - 10773 H
    This means that their reception will be as per BBC2 England.
    This means that BBC Channel Islands will no longer be recognised as being the strongest BBC1 region.

    BBC1 Manchester
    BBC1 Leeds
    BBC 1 Tunbridge Wells

    are all leaving their current frequency, and moving to the frequency currently used by BBC RAdio 5 Live and BBC1&2 Scotland - 10.802 H
    This means that their reception will again be as per / similar to BBC2 England.

    BBC1 Wales and BBC2 Wales

    will be moving from their current frequency to 10.788v - moving from a weaker horizontal to a stronger vertical frequency. So these Wales regions reception will be as per most BBC1 regions ie - almost 24/7 on most big dishes. Meaning some areas will have 24/7 reception of a BBC2 region.

    BBC1 Northern Ireland and BBC2 Northern Ireland

    will be moving from their current frequency to 10.817v - moving from a weaker horizontal to a stronger vertical frequency. So these Northern Ireland regions reception will be as per most BBC1 regions ie - almost 24/7 on most big dishes. Meaning some areas will have 24/7 reception of a BBC2 region.

    Why the changes?
    The BBC have had to have a move around to amke space for the BBC1 HD channel.
    This will be starting on Wednesday 3rd November.
    The BBC had to make space for this channel, which will be on the same frequency as BBCHD channel.
    The BBCHD channel will continue to operate showing "the best of the BBC in HD", and the BBC1 HD channel will be a simulcast of BBC1 London.

    It will mean that if you watch BBC1 Channel Islands, then you will find that its reception has changed.

    It will also mean that you should now have much better coverage of BBC2, either via BBC2 England (reception not changing), BBC2 Northern Ireland, and BBC2 Wales. The latter two regions have almost the same schedules as BBC2 England, with some minor changes for regional programmes.

    Freesat and Sky boxes will automatically update themselves on Monday 18th October 2010 with these new frequencies.

    Those with Non Sky or Freesat boxes will have to rescan the channels to make sure your boxes have the new BBC1 and BBC2 frequencies.
