Hi all!

I was just rescanning UHF Channel 30 which carries the LBT multiplex from Divis. I am aware that Northern Visions TV (NVTV) will not be on-air until about September 2014 - due to my understanding funding issues. When it does come on-air it will occupy the No: 8 position on the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). BonanzaBonanza is also carried on this UHF channel EPG position 64. Along with BonanzaBonanza I am receiving another station - POP. My understanding is that this station is only available via satellite - Am I right or have I missed the News regarding this station. I receive it on EPG position 791 as a TV station.

Regards

P. Kieran Ward
