Re: More HD channel swaps for BBC channels next week

Is this going to be like the BBC2 swap and mean we have to modify all series links on those channels?

No channel IDs will change on the network, so your series link will just migrate with the EPG number change. There are only issues with series links when channel IDs change. eg. The new scottish STV HD regions were introduced.

The channel changes should now be implemented, & the corresponding SD channels removed.

Channel info slates are now showing on the old HD channels.

Indeed, all seems well.

BBC2 HD on 102, BBC4 HD on 107, 108 empty waiting on new BBC Scotland.

All series links for BBC2 HD and BBC4 HD correctly migrated.

Pleasantly surprised that my Favourites was also migrated correctly - hadn’t seen that before.

Not for Sky Sports.  HD still not standard as it is on satellite.

I don't know what you mean as all 10 Sky Sports channels broadcast by VM are in both SD and HD.
