I have been unable to get the BBC Parliament channel on my phone. "This channel is currently not available." Everything else works ok. Has anyone got a fix for this ? I called 150 and they told me the problem is with the broadcaster. I have a paid up BBC licence.
Hi Graham. Thanks for the quick reply. The issue is about being able to watch proceedings live on my iPhone. I can dial up the bbc iPlayer app directly and watch parliament highlight reels from prior days. But when I use Virgin TV GO and select Live TV, the BBC Parliament channel exits me to the iPlayer and then tells me the channel is not currently available. So it seems the only way to watch that channel live is via my television. There is a fault here somewhere but as Virgin says the issue is with the broadcaster, I do not expect quick resolution.
Hi Ben, thanks for the reply.You’re right, when I access any BBC channel from TV GO live tv, I am routed to the iPlayer.And it works for all BBC channels except for Parliament, which also routes me to the iPlayer but I am then always told that the channel is not currently available.
Any advice re whom I should take this up with would be appreciated.
