Re: TV Channels

Hi Steve1973,

 

Welcome to our community and thanks for posting. How are your TV channels since your last post? Are you still unable to receive BBC East? Please let us know which area you are in as our valued member japitts has asked. If there is an issue we can get this reported for you.

 

Kind regards Jodi.

Re: TV Channels

thanks , we can view BBC look east via the Ariel , its very frustrating to have to come out of VM to view look east. more importantly BBC London does not cover here very often where as BBC East is always covering news stories in my area .

I think VM need to re think its policy 

Thanks 

Steve

Re: TV Channels

Hi Steve,

If you type Look East in the search bar in iPlayer you will see Look East, with around 3 episodes of the regional news for Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. The episodes expire after around 24 hours

Re: TV Channels

You can often find alternative regional variations of BBC1/ITV around the ~850 or ~870 EPG positions. And also use the iPlayer app to alter your default region - and pick up your preferred BBC regional programmes - as mentioned.

Re: TV Channels

Chelmsford is fed from a very complicated headend setup in Basildon, as this serves both sides of the Thames.

The prescribed region is London on 101 & 103.

The alternative regions are:

858 - BBC South East

870 - Anglia West

871 - Meridian South East

There has only ever been provision for one alternative region for BBC on cable & two on ITV. So its either use the iPlayer or your aerial.
