Until about 4 years or so ago we got BBC World News but not BBC1. I really don't know anything about the cost of providing satellite feeds to the ground, it seems to me the BBC got it wrong when they either changed transponder, satellite or just footprint size which deprived us and others in various European countries of the BBC view on world events. That role is now taken over by Sky International.
We do watch BBC channels occasionally, in real time, through our Kodi box and one or two apps on there (like Mobdro) although it can be a bit hit and miss - like most illegal transmissions!
BTW we have in the last few years holidayed in Lugano, Zurich, Geneva and Bologna. All of the hotels we stayed in still claim to be able to deliver BBC World News but there is in fact no coverage. The hotels seemed surprised when we told them it was no longer available. Bob.
