Well, if we all stopped watching it maybe we'd give up Eurovision as a bad job. The more you watch it, the more it will go on, and on...

Re: Brexit blackout warning to channels.

We pour so much money into it to be unfairly treated by the other countries collaborating against us too. I know it's only a song show, but perhaps it represents their attitude regarding other, more important, things too.

Maybe we should pull out until they agree to stop this behaviour as it's not in the spirit of why the contest began.

Let ITV have it - they can make it a Premium Rate telephone charge to vote - and go to an ad-break as the winner is revealed.

I think it should go to UKTV. Then we could (nearly) all ignore it.

Re: Brexit blackout warning to channels.

Losing TV channels will be the least of our worries with Brexit.

So you say, Mr K. We'll all look back in five years and wonder what all the fuss was about. We will start losing channels over the coming years, but that will be related to the increase in the use of on demand services rather than Brexit, for which we will have a separate agreement with the EU.

We will not be turning this thread in to another debate on Brexit. Keep it to the issues on the channels.

Re: Brexit blackout warning to channels.

Ireland receives first post-Brexit licence application.

It’s emerged the Irish media regulator has received its first licence application from a UK-based broadcaster seeking to maintain distribution after Brexit.

Speaking at the Mediacon television and content conference in Dublin, Michael O’Keeffe, chief executive of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), confirmed the regulator had received such an application but declined to say who from.

Re: Brexit blackout warning to channels.

TV5 will be closing in January 2019 and Worldbox will be closing on 1/2/19.

Presumably they didn't think it worth the hassle of getting a licence from Ofcom to transmit to the UK
