    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.”

    “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 IRIB channels on Hotbird were jammed from Bahrain.

    Press TV was taken off the air in UK last month, soon after EU embargo came into effect. Apparently Ofcom revoked its licence for breaching the Communications Act.

    Worse than Fox news?Every news network has its own policies and only publishes news that is in their interests.So you can't blame Press TV or any other news agency.And also I've never heard any fake news from Press TV.

    Correct! The world is not just confined to news dictated by the English speaking countries. We need opinions from a multi-cultural perspective!

    Yep. Press TV isn't actually a news service. It's a propaganda tool that pretends to be a news service but only reports made up stories by the Iranian regime. It doesn't report real news.
