[access-uk] Re: Audio Description on NTL

Roger,

That is interesting.  I will try again with NtL and report back if I get
anywhere.  Just out of interest, could you tell us the area where the audio
description is being received?

If I get any info I will report back.

David

Hi David et al

A friend has the NTL cable system and is currently receiving AD on BBC1 and
BBC2 at least. He may be getting it on other BBC channels but I'm not sure
about that. Getting this information from NTL was unbelievably hard as
almost all members of the help section had no knowledge at all of it. But
being a bit of a persistent so and so he finally succeeded. A rocky road lay
ahead. He got sighted help to go through the menu system but it still didn't
work. Finally he called out an engineer who said he didn't have the correct
remote hand set. So he now has 2 for his control box as the new one has so
many buttons on it he gets lost navigating it.

What he was not told was that the usual BBC channels he uses are in the very
low numbers, mostly single figures but the AD channels are in the nine
hundred series channel numbers. BBC1 is either 916 or 926 I believe. Whether
it is regional I've no idea but the engineer led him to understand it was
national. But with the usual misinformation from NTL who knows for sure.
