bbc-primeBBC Prime, the commercial station available to non UK viewers worldwide, has been experiencing severe technical problems today.
In some areas a total loss of transmission occurred whilst in others, such as viewers in the area serviced by Hotbird at 13 East received a FTA broadcast of the channel.

This means anyone with a digital satellite receiver was able to receive the channel. Normally a subscription card is required to view the channels.
BBC Worldwide who operate BBC Prime are aware of the problem and are working now to resume a normal service. An apology was issued on the BBC Prime website.
