# 16 Announcement from SES Astra re. transfer of channels to new Astra 2E UK Spot Beam

The following announcement was made by SES Astra yesterday evening – 11/12/13:
“As part of SES’ ongoing fleet renewal programme, we will be transferring all the UK Spot Beam transponders currently operating on ASTRA 1N across to ASTRA 2E. This move at the 28.2/28.5ºEast orbital location will take place over several weeks beginning early February 2014. The transfer will have no adverse implications for viewers in the UK and Ireland as the affected channels will continue to operate on the same frequencies and will be broadcast at the same, or slightly improved power levels, across the UK and Ireland. TV viewers outside the UK and Ireland may see an impact and may not be able to receive channels from ASTRA 2E UK Spot Beam, which has a smaller footprint than ASTRA 1N. The new footprint on SES’ replacement fleet has been designed to meet the requirements of UK and Irish broadcasters who target their channels for distribution in the UK and/or Ireland. UK and Irish broadcasters hold broadcasting rights only for the UK and/or Ireland but not for other countries.”
So it looks like we’ll still be able to enjoy our TV over the Christmas period and into the early part of 2014.  However once the change has taken place the only way then to receive your favourite missing TV programmes will be via the internet.

We currently have a great satellite/internet box called MediaOne from MediaStreamz installed and working which will get you everything on the satellite plus the missing channels via the internet – plus lots more TV series & films for FREE.  This box is packed with features and has the advantage of receiving Sky channels via a subscription but you get the first 3 months FREE when you purchase the box (you can elect to take a weekend subscription, monthly, 3 month, 6 month or 12 months – contact us for subscription prices).  For a demonstration contact us via e-mail or mobile to set up an appointment.
