As for the ITV SD feeds, they are downconverted from the HD version. Is it the same for the ITV digital channels, where there is a single feed for SD and HD?

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).

Though the DOGs could be inserted downstream of the feed taken for downconversion - so that may not be relevant.

It could be that these are derived from an SD feed, or the same pre-Dog HD feed that is downconverted for SD - if that is how the channel is derived?

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

In a word, yes.

I thought so.
