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?
