Is there any (good?) news about receiving the BBC south of Rome in Italy. We can only get Ch4 and 5 and Radio 2.

Italian TV is not all that...

Thanks

The normal advice is either " forget it" or "move further north!"

Wait and see what turns up on the BBC Astra 2A transponder - you never know, something worthwhile may turn up.

Hi Mark,
Crikey, we must be pretty close to each other here, I'm south of Rome too!
No good news on the 2D front though except to say that a well known Irish pub in Rome, Finnegans, claims on their web site to have the BBC.......must check it out!
regards

Denis,
I talked to the owner of Finnegans; the website is out dated, it is still when we used to get BBC on Astra 2A two years ago.
Ciao for now

You are very lucky (or very well equipped in terms of dish size, of course) to be able to get ch 4 (and 5). Do you get them regularly 24/7? What dish size ?
