At a loose end NYE? Try chasing midnight as it sweeps westwards across the world. last year I had 8 midnights, mainly by using Hotbird.

1500 UTC
Japan. JSTV dropped their encryption as midnight approached.

1600UTC

China. CCTV 4 or 9 (doesnt matter which as they have the same programme)

1700 UTC

Thailand. Thai Global Network

1800UTC

Kazakhstan Caspionet

1900 UTC. Nothing found last year.

2000 UTC

Middle East - Dubai'sEDTV or Armenia C1

2100 UTC

MIddle East, not much action here last year

2200UTC

Take youre pick from Romania, Bulgaria, Greece. Romania Intl had a good party on last year.

2300UTC

Has to be Germany Find a station showing a bierkeller and enjoy the music


0000UTC

Uk of course. so you get drunken Scots on BBC Scotland, wild parting in Traf Square on BBC England, or fireworks from RTPi Portugal.

further west.

America's east coast is-5hrs UTC, so one of the American news networks if you are still awake and sober enough to care at 5AM

We Irish never get to see Midnight on NYE, But the nice PoliceMan that opens the cell on NYD will always tell us what we missed.

Hmm - its all been very quiet so far, Japan only had a big bell ringing, and China hasnt had any of the traditional singing & dancing on. I guess its a reponse to the dreadful tidal wave disaster.

Russia has just had theirs, and the few channels here seem to have a lot of hairdressers and not much else.

Still the other half likes it
