Constant adverts intended for Scotland.

So I live in Derby, the centre of England and since I’ve had virgin tv in the summer I get Scottish government adverts and information relating to coronavirus and the pandemic exclusively. Seems a bit of a wasteful and is also irrelevant information to oneself. Are others experiencing this problem? I’ve tried looking online but haven’t come across anything so I’m posting here. I’d prefer to get the information relevant to me for England but we don’t.

Re: Constant adverts intended for Scotland.

I receive my local news derby/notts/brum/leicester so that’s why it makes no sense to me.

Now, who wouldn't prefer the bold, bad Auntie Nic to bumbling Boris on their screens?

Re: Constant adverts intended for Scotland.

That's a new one on me. There's quite a few others around that are less forum-safe!

Re: Constant adverts intended for Scotland.

Don’t think the OP is referring to TV ads. The ads for OD, apps & internet may be looking at the location from your IP address. If this has changed recently then it may have had a previous user in Scotland. After a while IP locations usually adjust to the correct location.

Virgin BB TV Landline. Freeview/Freesat HD, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile. Cable customer since 1993

Re: Constant adverts intended for Scotland.

I’m referring to the government adverts relating to the caronavirus. This has been happening for 8 months now.
