GB News has completed a satellite and frequency change, and some viewers may be seeing a “no signal” message due to the change.
GB News, a British television channel established in 2021, is known for its commitment to diverse perspectives and an alternative approach to news coverage. Positioned as a counterbalance to mainstream media, the channel covers a range of topics, including news, politics, and cultural issues, fostering open discussions and varied opinions. GB News emphasizes viewer engagement, encouraging audience participation through social media and interactive elements. While it has faced both praise and criticism for its editorial stance, the channel’s commitment to offering an alternative voice in the media landscape has made it a notable addition to the UK news scene.
The satellite and frequency change has resulted in GB News channel moving form the UK “spot beam”, to the wider and easier to receive “European beam”. (Ironically making GB News more available in Europe!)
GB News viewers with Sky boxes and Freesat set top boxes will have updated automatically to the new frequency for GB News.
However viewers using other types of satellite receiver, of TVs with built in satellite receivers, will be seeing “no signal” messages, as their receivers do not automatically update to the new frequencies.
So you have to go into the menu system and perform a scan for GB News on its new frequency.
(how you do this will vary from receiver to receiver)
