The two new HD channels – Channel 4+1 HD and 4seven HD – will launch on channels 110 and 111 respectively and anyone who can already receive channels including BBC Four HD (channel 106) and Al Jazeera HD (channel 108) will be able to receive the new Channel 4 services when they launch.
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.
To find out when and if your area will get the extra HD channels. Check out the “Coverage Checker” at www.digitaluk.co.uk.
Great news if you have Freeview HD or YouView. Going by the EPG data on my YouView box. CBBC HD and BBC Three HD will be going live on 10th Demeter 2013! I guess they will also go live on Freesat, Sky etc at the same time.
The 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?
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.
