Default BBC DOGs

I think the DOGS should stay! It makes up for the crappy shortened 'hardly
recognisable' region names in the EPG
BBC, please keep the DOGS

ROTFL! There are two DOGs one on top of the other on all the BBC
regional variation channels now. One says the name of the Region, and
the other says "BBC THREE on BBC ONE".

As others have posted the Regional DOGs are there to finally confirm the
postcode mapping being used by Sky. They are temporary and will be removed
pretty soon.

Well there are only a fixed number of characters available in the Sky EPG
for channel listings - and some of the smaller BBC regions have amazingly
convoluted names... On the whole I'd be happier if they stayed DOG-free .

Some of the smaller BBC regions are still not represented on satellite
TV, eg. Jersey, Guernsey and a couple of others.

See updated report on http://logofreetv.org/

We report what we see and capture and don't make it up. The captures were
from 2200 last night and 1100 this morning.

Thank God, the DOGs are no longer showing.

It is only BBC One Channel Islands that is not on DSat - all other BBC One
regions and sub-regions are there. (The sub-regions are Hull, Cambridge,
Oxford and Jersey) The Channel Islands should be up on DSat once the
equipment to allow for it is installed in Jersey and Plymouth
