Re: A thread for FreeSat changes

The transponder operating on frequency 11081 H also carries CNN & Blaze. If these also have issues then you definitely need the dish looking at. It could be deterioration of the dish, LNB or cable, but is more likely an alignment problem. An aerial rigger could sort it in minutes with the correct kit.

Country music on TV does not make money. I had a chat with the CEO of Spotlight a while ago & the outlay for an ongoing slot on SDN was in excess of 4 million a year. Hence the reason for the use of an IP slot plus the Manchester mini-mux. They remain on Freesat/Sky as this gives easy access to the Irish Republic as well as the UK. With no space for terrestrial in Ireland itself there was no other option for broadcast.

The radio side on the other hand is booming. With Country Hits Radio now available on DAB in most Scottish & northern England local muxes, Smooth Country in the south of England & Midlands, & Chris Country on loads of mini-muxes, local DAB in London & several other areas.
