ITV iplayer can be viewed but a good broadband speed is better as it is prone to freezing , but you can download and save programmes/episodes to watch later if you find it too annoying. It really does depend on your broadband speed !
I can't get Channel 4 iplayer, it recognises my Spanish I.P. address and prevents access.
BBC News, Alba & Parliament were removed from the EPG,
i am led to believe that when they are switched off from the transponder, they will be replaced by the red button streams. but only 5 out of the existing 7 streams.
however, all things will most likely change when the new Astra 1N satellite reaches position later this month or in November, it has a different footprint than Astra 2A, 2B & 2D but has only been booked by ITV at the moment. You can track its progress here, http://www.n2yo.com/?s=37775
