Last season's FTA football on Sport Italia with perfect reception now has gone at my end. I still get the channel but with message "Audio Video not available." Has Sportitalia 'lost' a contract to brodcast FTA matches, or is there something different about their signal since May/June 2007??

Any helpful answers would be appreciated!:confused

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

welcome to the forum gordonstewart

If you are referring to sport italia on 11737 H 27500 2/3 on Hotbird 13 degrees west then as far as I know it was never FTA and it is encrypted in mediaguard 2 .
But of course I am just guessing what you are referring to until you say.

Thanks Topper for prompt response.

I had found sport italia shown in red on livesat.com last season and picked up transmissions on 11862 27500 on Hotbird 13' (horz) giving me lots of live English games with italian commentary. Now on livesat.com after the summer break, sport italia is now in blue as encrypted, hence message on my 'favourite'. :confused

What say you now from your experience??
