BBC London 94.9, the BBC’s “local” radio service for London, has suddenly appeared on satellite via the BSkyB platform. It can be found on EPG channel 902, where it replaces BBC World Service Extra. It’s labelled “BBC Radio London”
It’s free to air and can be tuned in by anyone within the footprint of Astra 2D on 10.803 GHz Horizontal SR:22000 FEC:5/6. The station’s website now confirms “London listeners can now get BBC London 94.9 on Channel 902 on the Sky digital platform” while at the bottom of the same page it says “At the moment BBC London 94.9fm can not be received on sky digital, ntl, homechoice or freeview.” Obviously this is work in progress.
