Press TV signal jammed on Nilesat

Source: Press TV

The signal of Press TV has been jammed on the Nilesat satellite provider, and the operator has failed to provide a satisfactory explanation for the electronic interference.

The Iran-based English-language news network has been jammed on the Nilesat satellite since 6:39 p.m. Tehran time (1509 GMT) and has not returned to normal.

The source of jamming is said to be a nearby transponder which sends powerful interfering signals.

When contacted by Press TV, the satellite provider first declined to comment but later said the interference was due to bad weather.

After Press TV said that the jamming has been reported in some other areas, the satellite provider promised to pursue the matter and solve the problem.

The Iran-based Arabic-language Al-Alam network has also reported similar problems.

The Press TV and Al-Alam networks have been widely watched in the Arab world for their comprehensive coverage of the popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.
