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