C4HD would be great to have on Freesat, as would Five HD, though...


You're not missing out on much from Five HD. There's very little native HD content. Even many of their big American imports which are made in HD are still only shown in upscaled SD.


There's only Neighbours and Home & Away that are regularly in HD on Five HD, you get the odd movie and the odd import in HD, but that's near enough it, but its worth having just to watch Five upscaled

C4 HD is good, but it can vary somedays, Hollyoaks is in HD, but you're best watching it at the weekend as near enough all of the films and US imports are all HD, and the picture quality is really great.

Confirmed .....

BBC One HD Channel to launch 3 November and EastEnders to go HD on Christmas Day

The BBC today announces that BBC One HD will launch at 7pm on Wednesday 3 November across all HD platforms: Freesat channel 108, Freeview channel 50, Sky channel 143 and Virgin Media channel 108.

The new high definition (HD) channel kicks off with a series of programmes made in true HD: The One Show, followed by Wallace And Gromit's World Of Invention, the new series from award-winning Aardman Animations, as well as some food for thought with Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers and Jimmy's Food Factory.

If BBC One HD is going to be on channel 50 on Freeview HD, where's the BBC HD channel moving to?

A better arrangement (IMO) would be to leave the showcase BBC HD channel where it is on channel number 50,
put BBC One HD on channel 51, move both ITV1 HD and Channel 4 HD to channel 53 and 54 respectively, and
save channel 52 for BBC Two HD assuming it's eventually launched before DSO is complete.

After DSO is complete they can all be moved up to 1, 2, 3, and 4, hopefully with Five HD moving into position 5.
(That's assuming Dirty Desmond hasn't run Channel 5 into the ground and effectively killed it off by then!)

Eitherway, I'll be moving BBC One HD up to channel number 1 on my Bravia TV when it finally launches in Nov,
like I've moved both ITV1 HD and Channel 4 HD up to channels 3 and 4 respectively ... much easier that way.

There's no room at present for any more HD channels on DTT though, and the prospect of that changing anytime soon is remote, especially as the DSOD auctions seem to be going ahead in late 2011/2012 with the intention to slew these towards mobile comms rather than other purposes.

It's also going to occupy the current BBC HD slots on Freesat, Sky & Virgin, so where is that going to go on those platforms?

Surely it would make sense to use Sky Channel 117, after BBC Four, if it's owned by the beeb.

I believe that's used for Channel 4 in Wales, where S4C appears on 104?

Does anyone know how this effects the idents? I don't think there be a big change but I guessing there be some sort of change for the HD logo?
