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 old Astra 2 satellite was capable of transmitting the signals to much of Europe including The Canary Islands, however the new Astra 2 satellite does not provide a good signal to The Canary Islands although some parts of Spain actually now receive a better signal.
We appreciate that many of our guests became accustomed to watching UK TV whilst at Pearly Grey and have come to expect it as part of our service.
Unfortunately we are unable to provide the same quality of TV signal now with BBC1 being the most difficult channel to broadcast.
We hope you can appreciate that this is outside of our control and we are continually looking at options to improve the TV signals.
