Default Channel 5 starts big switch off

(But it does indicate that if C5 has been taking their analogue
transmitter feed directly off the D-SAT signal, they'll have to do
something to sort it quickly!)

Yes, it was from Satellite, further, they did it again this week, the
people at Sandy will have to pay a SKY sub, what a mess, people with
no Satellite calling thinking they have to have Sky in future, for
stations other than the BBC!

"what a mess" DJR

Why can't the other channels follow the BBC and ITV to the other Sat? Stop
seeing only one solution and one villain.

They probably will - but only when contracts expire. ITV
have a contract with $ky for encryption/P Code mapping until
the end of 2004; unless there are negotiations on-going then
there's an assumption that ITV will go FTA towards the end
of next year.
