Press TV is a target.

They are being routinely jammed in Europe.


Mon Feb 20, 2012 3:49PM GMT -- PressTV, Iran


Press TV viewers in Europe say the frequent attacks last three to four minutes each time.

Some reports indicate that the news channel’s online stream is also targeted at the same time as jamming signals disrupt the broadcast of the channel.

Italian viewers said Saturday was the fifth consecutive day of “Press TV signal black-out in Italy.”

“Today (Saturday) was the worst day of all - almost all day no signal - neither on Satellite TV, nor online streaming,” one Italian viewer said.

This is not the first time that Iran’s television waves have come under attack. Last month, the signals for the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) channels on Hotbird were jammed from Bahrain.

Jamming signals have been reportedly interrupting the broadcast of Press TV, Iran’s 24-hour English-language news channel, in various locations across Europe.


Now just WHO is doing this and WHY ??

Someone who is sick of seeing the world spoon fed lies. Remember V? He interrupted the newscast to organise a protest. This blocking is simply a protest. And it's Avalessa approved

Well Foxnews is also proven spoonfeeding us lies, and they are not the only ones either. At least PressTV was spoonfeeding from the other end of the spectrum, to serve as a counterbalance, which is nice, as the truth is often hidden somewhere in the middle.

Also i have seen far less proven lies from PressTV than from FoxNews, although i admit that might have something to do with the popularity difference between the two...

I would say its Iran and they are just blaming the West for their own incompetence. They cracked down on their own media sources with the upcoming elections, and chances are they have managed to interfere with their own signals thy want to get out.

Just another effort by Iran to blame someone else for their own stupidity.

Could be.

Maybe their technicians are screwing up.

Or some equipment is failing.
