Discovery channels move to UK beam, changing reception in some areas of Spain
The Discovery group of channels, has changed frequencies.
And satellite beams
The channesl used to be on the EUropean beam, meaning nice and easy recpetion across Spain
But yesterday, the channels changed frequencies, and changed to the UK beam.
This UK beam, is the same beam that carries channel like BBC and ITV.
This means that some areas of southern Spain, like the Costa del Sol, and Barcelona area, may find they can no longer access these channels on their current satellite dish. You will now need a larger satellite dish to receive these channels.
For other areas of Spain, like the Valencia and Costa Blanca area, you should find that reception has not changed much, and the channels should still be received on the various 110×120 and 125x135cm satellite dishes that we install.
The Discovery channels new frequency is:
