Lost BBC News on satellite….?
Have you lost reception of BBC News on satellite TV?
Are you getting “no signal” message for BBC News on Sky channel 503, and Freesat 200?
Then this may be because
the standard definition version of BBC News has changed frequencies.
BBC news used to be on frequency 10.818 V, 22.000, 5/6, DVB-S, QPSK
Today BBC News changed frequency to 12.422 H, 27.500, 2/3, DVB-S, QPSK
This is due to the fact that the BBC is in a process of closing down all its Standard Definition channels, and upgrading them all to HD only.
Most Sky and Freesat users, using high definition receiver, will already be using BBC News HD on Sky 503 and Freesat 200.
But for those unable to receive this channel, perhaps your satellite dish is too small, people have been using the slightly easier to receive standard definition version. And if you view using a basic “free to view” satellite receiver, or via a TV with a built in satellite receiver, then if you want to continue to watch BBC News (in standard definition) then you will need to do a channel scan for BBC news on its new frequency.
But note that this new frequency for BBC News (SD) will only last for about a year, when the SD version of all BBC channels will be closed down.
