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.

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.
Russia’s Proton rocket crashed less than a minute after its liftoff from Baikonur, Kazakhstan. A Proton-M with a Block DM-03 upper stage lifted off as scheduled from Pad No. 24 at Site 81 in Baikonur Cosmodrome on July 2, 2013, at 06:38:22 Moscow Time (on July 1, 10:38 p.m. EDT).
The rocket started veering off course right after leaving the pad, deviating from the vertical path in various directions and then plunged to the ground seconds later nose first. The payload section and the upper stage were sheered off the vehicle moments before it impacted the ground and exploded. The flight lasted no more than 30 seconds.
By July 9, it is transpired that investigators sifting through the wreckage of the doomed rocket had found critical angular velocity sensors, DUS, installed upside down. Each of those sensors had an arrow that was suppose to point toward the top of the vehicle, however multiple sensors on the failed rocket were pointing downward instead (seriously! Are they taking the p*@s!!). As a result, the flight control system was receiving wrong information about the position of the rocket and tried to “correct” it, causing the vehicle to swing wildly and, ultimately, crash.
So what ?
As a consequence of this crash the Astra 2E launch has been delayed while further checks are carried out of the launch vehicle.
An update on the “Proton-M” rocket crash and the now delayed/postponed “Astra 2E” satellite launch is that the first restarted launch from the “Baikonur Cosmodrome” will be in early September of 2013.
It is quite possible that the “Astra 2E” satellite will be launched in early September of 2013 and if it is the case then the expectation would be for “Astra 2E” to have been officially announced as operational and in service at the 28.2 degrees east satellite position by the End of October of 2013.
So the loss of English tv channels in Spain draws nearer!! It’s like a bad story line from Eastenders (I know they’re all bad!), it keeps on dragging on 🙂
