Re: Channel

There have been some recent changes to ITV-HD & ITV+1 channels, and this is quite likely related.

@nodrogdis especially familiar with these, and maybe able to assist here. It's unlikely to be a fault, but quite possibly an explanation 😉

Due to the way the network was built you receive your channels from a cable headend in Croydon. Up until now customers on this headend had London ITV in Standard Definition on 103 & Meridian South East ITV in High Definition on 113. At the beginning of the month ITV moved all regions to High Definition operation & removed Standard Definition with the result that channel 113 had to be vacated.

There is a similar situation with the BBC regions & for some time now the BBC South East service has been provided to Kent on channel 858. Meridian South East ITV has also moved further up the guide now & can be found on channel 871.
