A good fill gap until the sat trucks are in place, I'm sure BBC/Sky will have their Europe trucks on the way. 3 hour drive from Belguim which I assume they are still at from EU Council.
You assume wrongly - neither the BBC or Sky had a truck at the European Council last week. Infact I don’t think any broadcaster did. Only a couple of years ago there’d be 10 or more parked outside, now none.
Did Sky News not have UKI-1912 there? During the summit there were two Sky feeds on 16E labelled and with test cards as such.
Have to correct that earlier statement - the trucks have apparently moved to be hidden away* and now use long fibres to get in to the building, but they pay the facilities company (quite a lot) every time to use them. So yes Sky could have had UKI-1912 there- if so I’m a little surprised as there are options to get circuits out of the building. I can categorically say there wasn’t a BBC truck there and hasn’t been for summits for almost 2 years.
