BFBS TV

You’ve been deployed to Afghanistan but, can you still watch Eastenders and watch the new films your mates have just seen? 

Yes, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 

BFBS TV is available in communal areas, in some accommodation and on your personal device in all camps in Afghanistan.

TV wise, you can watch some of your favourite channels - BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, BFBS Extra, Sky Sports Main Event UK, BT Sport 1, BFBS Sport, Sky News UK, Channel 4 UK, Channel 5, BBC One Delay, BBC Two Delay, ITV Delay, BFBS Extra Delay, Sky Cinema and Nepal TV 

You’ll also have a ‘Direct To Home’ satellite box. This is how we get BFBS TV to you. It’s a bit like a Sky dish but without the crazy expensive bill at the end of the month. 

For specific information about where you are, get in touch with the BFBS Office in HKIA, your local J1 contact or our service desk in the UK on 0044 (0)203 750 4567 or email [email protected]

Update on changes to BFBS TV Signals

On Monday 14th September from around 09:30 (UK time) there will be some disruption to satellite TV services as each channel is reconfigured as part of necessary engineering works.

This will affect viewers with DTH satellite receivers, cable TV systems and if they are watching on local MiPlayers.

The disruption will be kept to a minimum and should only affect one channel at a time, so there will be no complete loss of TV viewing.

If you require any further help, please contact our BFBS Service Delivery Team on [email protected] and  +44 (0)203 750 4567.
