No BBC2 Wales!

Been following Pro12.  But I can't watch a crucial game tonite between Ospreys & Glasgow, it is being shown only on BBCW, & I have just went thro' the channels & it is not there!  It is not even on any of the Scottish channels - very annoying!!!

 

I have watched other games via S4C/Alba/TG4, etc, but this is the first time it is 'exclusive' to Wales :-|

 

WHY!

 

(I did read previous posts about not being on the right 'headend' - but really!!)  Now seriously considering a move.

 

FWIW: 1xTIVO, 2xHD boxes, 152mb BB & full tv package, but can't watch a game....ggrr!

 

Rant over - unless someone tells me I missed it & it is on +++ channel! :-)

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

Ok...Had a thought, would it work with an option on the 'red' button?  Will try later tonite - if so, I will rescind my rant, but VM should make it easier :-)

 

FYI: The post at top of thread on BBC iplayer / Sports App... is broken - displays a sad face.

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

It is live on channel 991 (RB1) - it is nearly every week

 

Should have tried 'search' on your TiVo  Smiley Wink

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

Same as BBC2 Scotland/NI. Not worth the expence the additional equipment & piping it out from every Headend outside that region for no increased income. Same goes for all of the "wired" TV providers.

 

Freesat or Sky is the only option for "out of region" reception, but that is only because, by the nature of satellite, the beam covers the whole of the UK,

 

Usually any sport that doesn't have regional rights issues will be carried either online or Red Button to the whole of the UK.

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

You're correct, I did see that but thought RB stood for 'Radio Broadcast'.

However, it was also on the red button as well Smiley Happy  - though it did 'jutter' occasionally

 

So apologies to VM for my previous rant Smiley Happy  - just not obvious & not in HD Smiley Indifferent

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

BBC2 Wales is NOT in HD anywhere  -  only the main BBC2 channel

 

A TiVo search for 'Pro12' found it straight away

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

Hi markmcg

 

Thanks for posting, it's great you found the content you wanted to watch eventually.

 

You could also use the handy search function in the TV Anywhere site going forwards, to look for content if you're having a particularly difficult time finding the channel it's broadcasting on.

 

You can find that here TV Anywhere, or you could use the app if you have this downloaded.

 

You know where to find help if you need us with any other queries.

 

 

Thanks Smiley Happy

 

Karen

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

Hi,

Just see your post from earlier last year with regards to BBC 2 Wales, I have TiVo also and hoping to catch a game on there Sunday.  Does the channel actually broadcast on there?

Cheers

Re: No BBC2 Wales!

BBC2 Wales is only available to Virgin customers served by a Welsh network headend. As mentioned above, it may also be broadcast on the Red Button channel (991) for those outside Wales..
