BBC2 HD Changed channel number

In the blink of an eye tonight - BBC2 HD changed from162 - to replace the SD one on 102.  Wonder if others will follow suit ?  Hope it wont affect planned recordings Smiley Surprised

Re: BBC2 HD Changed channel number

There is a message on 162 saying the channel has moved and that you will have to alter any series links etc. You have 12 months to view any current recordings.

Re: BBC2 HD Changed channel number

BBC2 HD remains on 162 in Scotland as the Scottish version of BBC2 will be replaced by the new BBC Scotland channel early next year. The thoughts are that BBC Scotland will be given a prominent EPG slot (maybe 108 or even 102). From that date Scotland will receive BBC2 England.

According to my EPG ( Scotland ) there is no channel 162 there is no BBC2HD

Re: BBC2 HD Changed channel number

Thank you, @praxis@david_hutchison.

I have advised the @ModTeam on our Superuser forum of this matter and asked them to return this channel to Scotland as quickly as possible.

PS Please remember that any series links scheduled on BBC2 HD won't record without an active channel. I have a few so will be monitoring frequently.

Re: BBC2 HD Changed channel number

Hello jbrennand, 

 

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 HDchannels in the same location, and BT Sport UHDmoving. 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
