Virgin have begun ditching a few SD simulcasts - slowly but surely we might be moving in the right direction.
Yes, they've removed the BBC SD versions (bar BBC1 in the English regions), S4C, the Discovery channels, Bloomberg and GOLD so far. I think Channel 4 in London too, but not the other regions. Possibly a couple of others I've forgotten. They've recently re-ordered the Sky channels so the HD versions come first on the EPG
, though the SD ones are still there too. Hopefully we'll get more as contracts expire and free up more space on the service.
BBC2 sd is still available somewhere in the 800's on virgin and is where the links automatically went when 102 went HD. The picture quality is pretty poor on it through,
It's annoying because a holiday worth of recordings is way too much to fit in if all HD. Plus HD seems to increase the risk of my box crashing. And ITV Hub is still I think subtitle free through connected tv so not something I like using as I find subtitles help me understand things better. BBC Iplayer is excellent through no subtitles on live streaming of broadcast programs. 4OD has subtitles, haven’t used Five’s for a long time so not sure,
BT and Eurosport HD only as well
