Out of interest, are these android boxes from Electron easy to set up to receive UK TV? I currently use a laptop to access channels via Filmon, or via BBC and ITV Iplayers via a VPN, if I want to 'catch up'. All works well, but I could free up my laptop if one of these boxes can easily be programmed to do the same job. The ones on sale in the UK are pre-programmed (for UK use), so wondering what needs to be done with one bought from Electron? If anyone knows, I'd be grateful, thanks!

Thanks Admin.
I phoned the office & they told me updating the boxes is only for Caleta. It is the power going off at the transmitter & the WEATHER at the moment. Could be up & down for a few days. She will ask the engineer to reset but may keep happening. ::)  8)

Dear Clients
As is our usual practice for periodic box reprogramming we will be starting this from the 4th November 2014 and you will be able to bring your box to the office from that date to be reprogrammed? please do not bring your box in before that date.

Our office will be open
9.30 – 15.00 Monday to Friday during the reprogramming.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience however this is a necessary process we have to undertake.

You will continue to receive our signal on your box until the 17th November if it is not reprogrammed before then.

Please also note that we are planning to reinstate RTE1 sometime from the 4th November, this will be replacing FILM4.
Once the channel is changed there may be some disruption to RTE1 whilst the signal is being tested.

Seized Greenpeace ship leaves Canary Islands

A Greenpeace ship impounded by Spain earlier this month as it protested oil exploration off the Canary Islands was allowed to leave on Wednesday after payment of a €50,000 ($63,000) bond, a sum they expect to see refunded, the group told The Local.

The Arctic Sunrise "left at 5.00pm local time (1700 GMT) and set off toward Valencia" in eastern Spain, a spokesman for the environmental group said.

Spain said it impounded the ship because the crew defied orders to leave a restricted zone where they were protesting against oil exploration off the Canary Islands.

Spain's maritime authorities have launched administrative proceedings against Greenpeace for a breach of marine traffic rules, Greenpeace International's legal unit told The Local. 

On November 15th, three Spanish navy boats rammed vessels in which Greenpeace activists were approaching a ship belonging to Spanish energy firm Repsol.

An Italian protester fell in the water and was injured, Greenpeace said. It said its activists were protesting peacefully.

Authorities impounded the boat on November 18 at the port of Arrecife on the island of Lanzarote.

Greenpeace had said the captain, a US national, was being refused release until the €50,000 ($63,000) bond was paid. It had initially refused to pay.

The group expect to see that bond refunded as they believe they will manage to get legal proceedings thrown out of court, they told The Local.

The organization has filed an appeal and is looking at possible legal action against Spain over a "disproportionate" response by the navy, although a final decision has not been made.

The beaches of the Canary Islands, an Atlantic archipelago off northwest Africa, are a popular draw for tourists from Britain, France and elsewhere.

This month's incident was the latest involving the Arctic Sunrise, which was seized by Russian commandos in September 2013 during a protest against Arctic oil drilling.
