The broadcasting of UK terrestrial TV channels such as BBC1, BBC2, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 has been restricted since the UK broadcasters relocated their signal transmission to new satellites. The new Astra 2 satellite does not provide a good signal to The Canary Islands although some parts of Spain now receive a better signal.
Pearly Grey now uses an IPTV system to broadcast the UK channels. This technology relies on a stable internet connection and it is also dependant on the broadcast signal from the UK based supplier being operational.
These type of TV systems are not as reliable as a standard TV system but here in the Canary Islands we are limited to broadcasting options.
From time to time we do lose the broadcasting signal, and this is completely out of our control.
Thanks for your understanding
