Where are you on satellite? Our signal's disappeared...

We ceased broadcasting in analogue on Astra 1A at 19.2°E on Sunday 1st July.

Virgin Radio on Astra 1A was transmitted on a Sky News audio subcarrier, which has ceased broadcasting on that satellite. We were the first national radio service to start on this satellite - and the last to leave.

However, we are still freely available in digital on two satellites which cover Europe.

You'll find us in stereo on Astra 2A at 28.2°E, on 12.324V 27500 2/3. If you've a SkyDigital box, you'll find us on channel 857. This service also contains more information about our programming.

Satellite enthusiasts can also find our transmitter feed on Sirius 2 at 4.8°E 12.453H 18056 3/4 in mono (full bandwidth).

Both services are FTA and are available without subscription.
