And now the news:

---------- WEEKLY ROUND-UP
Astra Promo (28.1.97):
Today Astra twice replaced their promotional on transponder 57 with
colour bars. Presumably this was due to a fault or problem.
The test card on Tlcom 2D tpR18 also disappeared today and was
replaced by an MPEG-2 transmission for some time. It is back now.
