Biss Key on Intelsat 907 at 27.5°West for the “Satback” service
Arqiva, who operate the UK Freeview service on behalf of the UK broadcasters, are leasing a transponder on the Intelsat 907 satellite located at 27.5 degrees West. In a deal signed in April 2007, Arqiva will use IS-907 to feed the signal to 90 main transmitter sites around the UK. The service on Intelsat 907 satellite is used for “emergency back up feeds” for the UK Freeview system, should the Freeview mast relay service lose its feed from their parent transmitter.
The service is commonly knownw as “BBC-Satback”.
For some expats living in Spain, in areas like the Costa del Sol where the main Astra 2 UK beam signals are very weak, the Satback service is one method of receiving some basic UK TV channels. However, as these signals are not for public use, they require certain receivers, and firmware patches and “BISS CODE” to hack into the encrypted signals.
