Wrong Region News

Hi I see you get lots of questions about customers getting the wrong regional news. I have 3 TiVo boxes and also get news from many many miles away!
Can you email me and detail what you need to look into this

Thank you

Re: Wrong Region News

The 'local news' shown on certain stations is not based physical geograhical boundaries, but rather it depends on the headend your connection goes back to (image of regions)

This is not something that can be changed, as the headend your connection goes back determines the 'local' news you will see on certain channels.

Re: Wrong Region News

On parts of the network where there are significant overlaps, additional regions may be available on the following channels:

858  - BBC 1

870 or 871 - ITV

TiVO boxes also access the full BBC iPlayer service, which carries the local news from all regions for 24 hours after they are broadcast.
