There are some nasty rumours around that CNN is ceasing analogue off 19E on 4th June. Anyone got any definite info??

Sad news indeed, but still available in C-band on Badr-C for the die-hard analog enthusiast. I can't get it there because my analog tuner can't handle the inverse video used on C-band but perhaps others are luckier. Badr-C is very strong here and a 120cm prime focus dish is enough to pick it up.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

That's very true, but losing the Analogue version is one more nail in the Analogue satellite coffin... :(

losing one analogue channel means gaining 10-15 new digital channels !
as channel space is very scarce on 19E, I can only welcome such a move .......

Yes, I'm sure at least 15 more phone-s_x promo channels with semi-lousy picture quality will fit in there nicely...

On the other hand a couple of nice HD-channels could fill each shutdown analog transponder void too.

Guess we will soon know, my point was that quantity isn't always a substitute for quality. The new content to come may also be encrypted and thus providing little joy for most people.

I can gladly admit that I hardly watch any analogue sat-TV but from time to time it feels good to dig out the PAL/D2MAC box and enjoy an evening or two with "real TV"
