2-4/Be have HD DOG's during shows broadcast in HD. SD doesn't.

However, if you subscribe to ITV Hub+ on Amazon Channels, they use what appears to be downconverted feeds without the HD DOG in 720p for the live channels. (Sky also use the downcoverted feeds used for the linear SD channels for NOW TV's 720p live channels).

Do they all show the 'Subtitles' and/or 'AD' tags like ITV?

In a word, yes.

I thought so.

Where there not all operated off by four sub relays? How many sub relays were there in TVS area?


TVS/Meridian have Whitehawk Hill (Brighton) as a advertising sub-relay (South news/South East ads). Heathfield, Dover and Bluebell Hill were South East and Hannington is Thames Valley (Beckley joined much later). Rowridge is South.


ISTR there was some discussion about Whitehawk Hill having a sub-regional news service at one point - given that Brighton is an important part of the patch? I think it was a TVS plan for post-1992? Or was it Meridian? I have some dim memory that it might even have been trialled?


I lived in Hastings from 1991-1996 and I'm sure Brighton news was on both editions. I also lived in Brighton briefly where everything at home came from Whitehawk Hill, but go to a shop and there were shops showing both editions of the BBC and TVS local news!

I think there was also or still is split advertising regions between Heathfield and Dover/Bluebell Hill.

Looking at the situation today from the Ofcom transmitter group map, the main Meridian transmitters are :

Hannington
Rowridge
Midhurst
Whitehawk Hill
Heathfield
Dover
Bluebell Hill (which was switched from Thames/LWT to TVS when TVS replaced Southern ISTR)

All of these transmitters have multiple relays/fill-ins at differing power levels.

Going back to the "Network South" proposal. Would the transmitter technology of the time allowed such multiple optouts?

It wouldn't have been the technology that would have allowed it but where they are and how they were fed. The first would have been a bigger issue, the latter is changeable.

I've no idea of what their plans were but look at how well Westcountry managed 4 sub regions a decade later

Ah, didn't realise you'd got it, didn't get the more 4 ident, was manually recording and didn't switch over in time.


Always better to have two people recording Wink Going by those BBC one idents more so than ever! watch out I', sure there be other ident with different special CA. I only find the stuff by pure chance.
