Box of Broadcasts outage- 11-13 June 2018

The Box of Broadcasts (BoB) streaming service, for terrestrial and freeview TV and BBC Radio, has given advance notice of an upcoming three-day downtime period: 11-13 June 2018. BoB advises as follows:

The BoB service will be unavailable between 11-13 June 2018. This is because the Eduserv datacentre in Swindon is closing imminently forcing us to relocate our BoB servers on 11 June 2018.

We are working very hard to minimise the impact of this move on BoB service delivery but it will be necessary to switch BoB off for up to 3 days whilst we move the equipment.

BoB will be switched off on the morning of 11 June 2018 and will be completely unavailable during this time. Forward scheduling on the EPG will be available up to 11 June and then will restart once the move is complete. Programmes broadcast during the down-period will be available retrospectively for most channels. Please note that off-air recordings can be ordered in advance during the down-time via TRILT and can be prioritised during this 3-day period.

If you have any questions about the above please contact bob@bufvc.ac.uk
