BFBS Changes Television Delivery in the Falklands

BFBS is making some changes to its delivery of television to the public of the Falkland Islands from the 15th of October.

 

Cryptoworks cards will no longer be supported. Camp residents should have had their boxes swapped and been issued with new Irdeto cards & CAMs already. If not, please contact BFBS at MPA on 32179.

 

There are also some changes planned to the TV channel content in response to feedback from military audiences and BFBS intends to concentrate all children's programming during the daytime on Channel 2, leaving the current BBC 2 broadcasts in the evenings unchanged. This is designed to make it easier to locate children's programming and to provide a balance of content for all age groups.

 

New daytime and overnight programmes to the BFBS Extra schedule will be added. These programmes are aimed to target an older audience and are intended to provide shift workers with an alternative to BBC and ITV daytime programming.

 

“BFBS are happy to bring these programmes to the Falklands Islands’ audience, as well as their military audience, and will continue to offer a wide variety of choice from the best British television has to offer,” said a BFBS spokesperson.
