Want to watch BBC southeast news instead of BBC London

Have seen another thread about watching a different area of BBC news, answers said to see southeast news choose channel 858, but we have not got this channel on our TiVo Bos to choose. Any ideas how to watch it please?

Sorry to say, if its not available on 858, then your local network area headend does not receive the channel, so you cannot watch it. The only option is to use Freeview via an aerial, or use the BBC iPlayer to watch at a later time.

That's why I can't wait for my contract with Virgin to come to an end. Have endured almost 2 years of pain v Sky tv, which compared to Virgin is fantastic.

Satellite by its nature is beamed from one point in space, so all regions must be carried. Unlike Virgin, it costs Sky nothing to have all the regions available. The free channels do a deal directly with the satellite operator (SES in Belgium), & then just "rent" an EPG number on Skys boxes.
