Madeira & Europe set to lose all UK TV as channels migrate



The disappearance of UK channels started on Friday with BBC moving first to the New Astra 2E satellite. According to sources, the Astra 2D/N satellite is being decommissioned. Most of Europe will be affected (and some parts of the UK) as the Astra 2E will only broadcast channels using a narrower beam, to reduce the footprint to only cover the UK.

ITV and Channel 4 are expected to follow suit in the early hours of Tuesday morning, 11th February. It is still not clear as to the situation with SKY subscribers, who may be able to receive their paid Movies and Sports packages for a while longer.
