Many expats in the last week have been affected by the closure of one data centre that provided iptv via a number of different resellers.
A number of rumours have emerged as they always do as to why they have been shut down but one thing remains clear, many expats have been left without tv.

News Just In!!!
This morning we received an email direct from Astra. Here is what it said…
“As part of SES’ ongoing fleet renewal programme, we will be transferring all the UK Spot Beam transponders currently operating on ASTRA 1N across to ASTRA 2E.
This move at the 28.2/28.5ºEast orbital location will take place over several weeks beginning early February 2014.
The transfer will have no adverse implications for viewers in the UK and Ireland as the affected channels will continue to operate on the same frequencies and will be broadcast at the same, or slightly improved power levels, across the UK and Ireland.
TV viewers outside the UK and Ireland may see an impact and may not be able to receive channels from ASTRA 2E UK Spot Beam, which has a smaller footprint than ASTRA 1N. The new footprint on SES’ replacement fleet has been designed to meet the requirements of UK and Irish broadcasters who target their channels for distribution in the UK and/or Ireland. UK and Irish broadcasters hold broadcasting rights only for the UK and/or Ireland but not for other countries.”
We are getting closer to the point where we will be all watching UK TV online via IPTV Set Top Boxes. For more information regarding IPTV please do not hesitate to call us, get in touch via Facebook or Twitter, or send us an email.
Russia’s Roskosmos space agency have announced that the new launch of its ill-fated Proton-M rocket is slated for September. The vehicle will lift off at the Baikonur spaceport, agency’s deputy chief Alexander Lopatin has told the media, months after a dramatic failure that resulted in a huge impact at the Kazakhstan-owned cosmodrome. The ILS Proton return to flight mission will be the Astra 2E satellite for SES on September 15, 2013.
What does this mean ?
If all goes well (LOL!!), Astra 2E will enter service probably in early November and the BBC and others will migrate shortly afterwards. What will happen then is that the Astra 1N satellite, which has been providing temporary UK cover for the last 18 months, will be moved to the orbital slot at 19.2ºE for which it was originally designed.
What is VPN ?
A VPN stands for a ‘Virtual Private Network’ which is a network technology that creates a secure network connection over a public network such as the Internet. VPN technology uses sophisticated encryption to give security and prevent any unintentional interception of data between private sites. All traffic over a VPN is encrypted using algorithms to secure data integrity and privacy.
Why would I want a VPN ?
Have you ever tried to view a website such as BBCiplayer and been denied access because you are in the wrong country? With a VPN you are able to select your IP address so that you are in any country you wish. If you have a Sky HD box for example you can connect the receiver to a VPN router and enjoy Sky Go, BBCiplayer, ITVplayer, Demand5 and 4onDemand directly onto your tv.
VPN routers offer you the ability to share your VPN connection with any device in your home, including a Smart TV, Sky HD box, PS3, Xbox, Apple TV and anything else that can connect to a router for Internet Connectivity. After testing various VPN’s we have now selected our Global VPN “Plug and Play” Package that is simply just that. All you need to do is connect it with an ethernet (cat 5) cable to your exisitng router/modem and you are good to go!! With this VPN service you can select to unlock services of other countries besides the UK, including France, USA, Australia, Finland, Germany, Holland, Norway and Sweden.
