/ It's not censorship when we do it
Jamming signals have been reportedly interrupting the broadcast of Press TV, Iranís 24-hour English-language news channel, in various locations across Europe.
Press TV viewers in Europe say the frequent attacks last three to four minutes each time.
Some reports indicate that the news channelís online stream is also targeted at the same time as jamming signals disrupt the broadcast of the channel.
What are they worried about?
You must be missing the Anti Israel propaganda from iran Wooley?
If they blocked Fox I would even happier
Are you aware of PressTVs slightly vague grasp of the truth?
They claimed for months that they had been banned from transmitting in the UK when they hadn't been. They tried to claim the London riots were a glorious peoples revolution that was overthrowing the evil tyrants. They then claimed it was a western imperialist plot to cover up the truth when Ofcom asked them to stop lying about where their editorial office is. They've now lost their UK licence because of their continual breaches of their licence agreement.
They are probably turning off their transmitters just to stir up propaganda.
No I'm suggesting PressTV are probably doing it themselves to stir up publicity.
> If they blocked Fox I would even happier
Noooo, Fox news is awesome entertainment, its up there with the Daily Show for giggles
Why would anyone block the channel for three or four minutes at a time? Surely if you are going to block a channel then a complete blackout is the only sane thing to do? Sounds like accidental interference or stirring to me.

If you are trying to watch a video stream it keeps stalling, you get p*ssed off with it and stop watching.
well, we have broadcast licencing laws in the UK, which are pretty reasonable;
breach the terms of your licence and you're no longer allowed to broadcast. that's pretty much what's happened.
STOP THE PRESSES, my TV just froze for a second....I think the establishment are trying to stop me watching Family guy, the government are trying to make me watch British TV again the bastards!
IIRC is was a story that wasn't being reported on any of the Western news channels.
Like I said in the OP, it's not censorship when we do it is it?

Get on to George Galloway, he will sort you out. he moonlights for Mossad.
and you know it wasnt just them being cheap with bandwidth how?
who is this we? Got any actual evidence the UK has done anything, well except expecting them to pay the fine and keep to UK regulatory conditions?
Apparently the British Govt. is blocking the signal from Bahrain, not sure how that one works. Still sounds like a whole host of other causes such as running the channel on the cheap to me.
I wonder why my newsagent is getting a regular supply of Iranian Newspapers? Must see if MI5 want to do something about that...
