BBC HD Channels moving up

Anyone else seen on the discovery bar that BBC1 & BBC2 HD channels are moving up to 101/102?  Doesn't mention where the SD channels will be, I record on the SD channels as it doesn't take up as much room as the HD channels.

Re: BBC HD Channels moving up

BBC2 SD remains on 102 in Scotland, in all other areas it swaps with its HD counterpart on 162.

BBC1 SD remains on 101 in England, while everywhere else it swaps with BBC1 HD on 108.

Re: BBC HD Channels moving up

Will I have to alter any planned recordings or series links or will they automatically transfer to record as planned on the new channel numbers?  Don't want to miss recordings

Re: BBC HD Channels moving up

Whilst BBC 2 HD has moved to channel 102, we appear to have lost BBC 1 HD on channel 108. Hopefully we will get BBC 1 HD back later on today

Re: BBC HD Channels moving up

Hello kayjayr

Thanks for your post about the channel changes 

I hope this explains it a bit easier for you 

 

101 will become BBC One HD for Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. For England, 101 will continue to broadcast in SD, with HD on 108. This is because the BBC currently broadcasts 14 regional variations of BBC One across the English regions, which don’t broadcast their local feeds in HD.

 

102 will become BBC Two HD for England, Northern Ireland and Wales:

  • 865 will become BBC Two SD for England;
  • Wales and Northern Ireland will no longer have BBC Two in SD;
  • Due to BBC contracts, BBC Two SD for Scotland will remain on 102. Scotland does not receive their own HD version, but they can enjoy the BBC Two HD England feed on 162.

Series links for both BBC Two SD & HD will be affected by the change. So you best look at changing these 

 

Regarding BT Sports 

 

We’ll be removing the SD BT Sport channels from our EPG, leaving BT Sport HD 1-3 and ESPN HD channels in the same location, and BT Sport UHD moving. Here’s the new line-up:

  • 527 - BT Sport 1 HD
  • 528 - BT Sport 2 HD
  • 529 - BT Sport 3 HD
  • 530 - ESPN HD
  • 531 - BT Sport UHD
