Changes to the BBC Sports stream frequencies - loss of BBC News and Sports streams in Denia

As part of the BBCs process to close down one of their satellite transponder frequencies in a bid to save money, the BBC Sports streams have changed frequencies.

As mentioned on , BBC News, BBC Alba and BBC Parliament have moved to another frequency.

The BBC Sports streams have now moved onto this vacated frequency.

Sky box and Freesat box users will not have to do anything, as your boxes will automatically update tot he new frequencies.

Users of non Sky and Non freesat "generic" or free to air boxes will have to performa scan of the new frequency for the BBC SPorts Streams.

The new frequency for the BBC Sports stream is 11954 h 27.5 2/3.

They are currently showing as channels with the names of "6711 6712 6713 6714 6715".

This process by the BBC will mean that users of Sky boxes and Freesat boxes, who used to use the BBC News channel and the Red Button 3001 process to access the BBC Sports Multiscreen streams on a small satellite dish, will no longer be able to receive these BBC Sports stream, as you will no longer have access to a BBC channel on your small satellite dish to launch the Red Button application.


At the moment (30/9/11) you can add the BBC Streams from the new BBC Sports stream frequency of 11954H.

input frequency of 11954 H
find channels
press yellow next to the channel labelled as "6711 6712 6713 6714 6715" which will place a tick next to those channels.

These stored channels will appear in the the Sky box's "other channels" list.

However, there will be video, but no audio.

So the current workaround is:

In the services menu, go to 4 systms set up,
then language and subtitles,
and change the Favourite language to anything other than English,

You can currently get audio on the new "streams", and its still fine on most of the other channels also

BBC Astra Satellite Frequency Changes in September and October 2011 - may affect your Sky TV / BBC TV reception in Denia

The BBC is making some changes to BBC News, BBC Parliament and BBC Alba.

These channels will be moving from their present transponder / frequency (11954/H/27500), which is available nice and easy for expats as it is a wide European beam, to transponders / frequencies on the narrow beam Astra 2D.

This will mean that expats wanting to watch these three channels, BBC News, BBC Parliament and BBC Alba, and who cannot receive the narrow beam Astra 2 transmissions where domestic BBC, ITV, Channel4 and Channel 5 are to be found, will be affected, as they will no longer be able tor recevie these channels.

The changes are due to BBC cost cutting and the corporation will also be cutting the number of Red Button streams, thus releasing a whole wide band transponder, and saving the BBC an estimated £5m a year, by no longer renting that transponder.

This will also mean that those people who use a Sky box, and the BBC News Red Button service to access the BBC Sports Red Button serives, will no longer have access to a BBC channel to launch the red button appplication, and so they will lose access to the sports on those "bbc streams.

Alicante-Valencia rail link land grab

THE REGIONAL public works council has released details of the land that is to be expropriated ahead of the building of the Alicante to Valencia coastal rail link.

The building of the rail line will see property in Alicante, Muchamiel, Campello, San Vicente, Agost, Monforte, Villajoyosa and Benidorm expropriated.

Owners of the affected land now have two months in which to view the plans in their respective town halls and present their appeals should they wish to do so.

Last April, regional government reached an agreement with the public works ministry under which it agreed to build the 82 kilometre stretch of the line between Alicante and Dénia and the ministry would build the remaining 58 kilometres from Dénia to Gandía.

The cost of the project has been put at 1,500 million euros and it envisages a rail link between Alicante airport and Benidorm that will move people between the two destinations in just 36 minutes. Benidorm is listed as being one of the 50 most populated urban areas in Spain yet it is the only one that does not have a proper main line rail link.
