Love the extra Freeview HD channels

YouView epg (26/03/2014)Got to say I am loving the extra HD channels that I can now watch via my Freeview HD tv and YouView box. Out of CBeebies HD, BBC FOUR HD, BBC NEWS HD, Al Jazeera English HD and Community Channel HD. I have a feeling I will watch BBC NEWS HD the most.

BBC Two HD launches 26th March 2013

BBC Two HDThe BBC has announced that the HD simulcast of BBC Two will launch just before Easter, on 26th March 2013.

BBC Two HD will replace the existing BBC HD Channel and will be available subscription-free on all digital television platforms offering HD channels.

The BBC Two HD channel will be a simulcast network version of the BBC Two schedule. Meaning that if you live in Scotland for example and want to watch Newsnight Scotland, you will have to tune back to BBC Two Scotland in SD.

I must say, I am not best pleased they are closed down BBC HD. Now where are they going to show content from BBC Three and BBC Four in HD?

More information about this can be found at www.a516digital.com/2013/02/bbc-two-hd-launches-26th-march.html.

Sunday – 2rd May 2010

I filmed a new vlog, in which I speak about changing jobs at the dog track, from bar man, to bar supervisor. Also about getting a new Bravia 32-inch Widescreen TV with build in Freeview HD. Just to add to it, I do the vlog, while having a shower wearing my white lycra Pearl Izumi Team Garmin-Chipotle cycling gear.
