Loss of some Spanish TV Channels

This morning some of my Spanish TV channels have gone eg Antena3, GOL, MAX, etc. I've had this happen before with my older Samsun Smart TV now the same with my LG Smart TV. I use a standard TV aerial, all the cabling is OK, I've re-scanned the programme tunings still no luck.

Any Ideas?

Re: Easyjet

I think it's too late to claim a refund since I'd already accepted the re-schedule voucher. I believe in claiming a refund you need to phone EasyJet in the UK. Phoning - not a good option for me, recently, I was charged 20€ by Movistar for a call to the UK from my landline phone, I was calling the D...

Re: Getting to airport

Pamela1 - Thanks, I hope so.

Benal Pirate - No I'm on the 16.50 to Liverpool with Ryanair. I opted for a voucher for my cancelled EasyJet flight to Liverpool and was looking to use it mid January to do a similar journey for the same purpose but there seems to be no flights until February.

Re: Getting to airport

Just an update to my previous post. Our flight to the UK on 18th November with Ryanair was cancelled. I have re-scheduled free and brought the flight forward to 15th which was one of their options, so far the flight is still on. My brother and his wife who live in the Alpujarras returned from their ...

Re: UK Mobile WiFi - Question

Patricia - I think Lobster’s about mobile phones with calls to and from UK and Spain. I was after a standalone router device with a SIM card and unlimited data use, this would enable me to work from the UK using a tablet/laptop.

I am with Movistar Fusion Radio (ideal for campo living, no fibre) - wireless internet, landline and two mobiles. My bill is around 55€ per month however when I checked the online balance it appears that since Feb...

Re: Flying to the UK Question

I just read on the Gov website that if you're staying for less than 14 days then you just need to isolate for the duration of the stay.

Cheers
