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
