I rang up the Customer Service line and read the Riot Act at them - they removed the block (taking two working days to push the switch, but hey, it's O2) without asking for credit card details or any of that nonsense.
I also took the time to have a whinge at why my BT Openzone access no longer seems to work either!
There's also the small point that Northern Ireland's only non-BBC multiplex carries about six or seven commercial stations and that's it. Not exactly the hundreds of channels that are touted elsewhere.
Plus the Beeb is having to add seven new transmitters in order to get a half-decent signal out for their channels. The commerical mux is also going to have to expand the transmitter network to improve coverage and signal strength.
I'm also told that the fact that the Republic is still using Band 3 for some of its analogue television signals causes difficulties with DAB transmission in Northern Ireland, so matters may not improve until the South switches that off.
@ Stu: I actually enquired about changing network in an Orange store last week, they seemed to think that all I needed to do was get my PAC code from O2 and that would be it - I could sign up to the £35/month plan without any trouble. That's the only plan I asked about but I would assume that the other plans would be equally available.
