Two BT Sport channels, BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Europe, change frequencies this week, which may mean loss of BT Sport Europe signals for some areas of southern Spain and Portugal.

BT Sport Europe standard definition has followed the HD version and has moved from the European beam to the UK beam. It may also mean the start of BT moving all of its channels from the European beam to the UK beam. This may mean that viewers in fringe reception areas, like the south of Spain, and Portugal, may now have lost this channel.

In my service area, viewers should not notice much change in reception – and BT channels should still be available on our popular 110x120cm satellite dish installations.

The new frequencies for BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Europe is:

On Sunday 1st November, BeIN Sports changed some of their channel frequencies and the satellites they operated on.

With no prior warning.

If your satellite dish is aligned to Nilesat at 7 West, then you will have lost BeIN Sports 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15.

These BeIN Sports channels (BeIN Sports 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15) are now only available on their satellites at 25.5 east, Es’Hailsat.

If your satellite dish is already aligned to Es’Hailsat at 25.5 East (or Badr at 26 east), then you will also need to perform a rescan of channels, as some of the BeIN Sports channels have changed their frequencies also.

Spanish TV is due for a few changes in the next few months.

Several Spanish TV channels, that you receive via a TV aerial, are schedule to change frequencies.

This is due to their current frequencies due to be sold off to mobile phone operators for 3G and 4G.

See: https://www.satandpcguy.com/blog/2014/10/changes-tdt-spanish-digital-television-changes-tv-spain/

The deadline for his change over was the 31st De3cember 2014.

However, The Spanish government has bowed to the pressure of the industry to delay the switch off until March 31st 2015

For most people, the changes to Spanish TV will simply mean performing a rescan for channels on their set top box or TV

However, those in apartment blocks or communities will have to wait until their “signal head end” is adapted to the new frequencies.

This new delay is due to the fact that by October 2014 less than 10%, and estimates for December 2014 say less than 50%, of buildings in Spain have been adapted for the new Spanish TV frequencies.

Spanish TV channels will continue to be “simulacast” on both old and new frequencies until the new deadline.
