BVN started again on Astra 19.2°and will stop using the Hotbird 13°E.

BVN, the public broadcaster for Dutch and Flemish citizens abroad, will stop its distribution via the Hotbird 13° E satellite.

For Europe, a part of Northern Africa and a large part of the Middle East BVN is on air now via the Astra 1M 19.2° satellite.

We understand that your organisation needs some time to organize reception via the Astra 1M satellite. For this reason BVN will be still available on both satellites until May 27, 2020.

For cable distribution organisations: please adjust the satellite reception of BVN TV to the Astra 1M 19.2°E.

For providers of satellite DTH subscribers: please adjust the settings of the satellite receivers of your clients so that they can receive BVN TV free to air via the Astra 19.2°E.
