stv hd

a few weeks ago it was announced in a joint statement that stv channel 103 (on virgin tv) would be changing to HD...

so far this hasn't happened...do you have any idea when it will happen.

Re: stv hd

It happened on the 25th of September as far as I know for all customers who receive STV.

Why don't you think it's changed?

stv hd

I live in Edinburgh which is channel 103 on virgin...according to the statement channel 103 was to receive this channel in HD when you also started the stv  app...

so far its still in SD not in HD.

the west of Scotland has HD on channel 113,i can view this channel as well.

 

thanks for replying and trying to help by the way.

Re: stv hd

Ah OK. I was wrong for the fact it already happened. Sorry about that.

What Virgin statement do you mean?

stv hd

afternoon

the announcement was that stv and virgin media had signed an agreement that stv player would be available on virgin media...this has happened..

there are 2 stv channels in central Scotland channel 103 is for Edinburgh and the east of the region and channel 113 is for Glasgow and the west of the region...

channel 113 has always been in HD but channel 103 has just been in normal standard vision..

the statement from both companies stated that channel 103 would start to show as HD when the stv player was introduced into the virgin player...

this last part has still not happened..

any thoughts

Re: stv hd

So the press release for the new agreement says both will happen:
https://www.virginmedia.com/corporate/media-centre/press-releases/stv-and-virgin-media-agree-four-ye...

Although nothing actually in there to say they'll happen at the same time.

So for now it's still 113 for STV HD, until it is changed.

Re: stv hd

I think this is another case of the regional HD feed not being available & hence the SD remaining at the top of the EPG. Whoever does the engineering for STV has to make this feed available at VM's master headend just to the west of London in order for it to be available on the network.

If its anything like the rest of the ITV network it could be a while.

stv hd

evening guys

thanks for the advice..i just assumed it would happen at the same time as the stv player became available.

knowing stv  (stv headquarters are in Glasgow) hell will freeze over before they give Edinburgh anything...lol

 

thanks again..

hope you both have a good Christmas.

Re: stv hd

Well, STV HD is now on channel 103. However, we are getting the Glasgow feed and not the Edinburgh one. This means that we get the Glasgow version of the STV News at 6 and not the Edinburgh one. (Previously, the Edinburgh version was on 103 and Glasgow on 113). Can someone please explain why we cannot watch our local news from Edinburgh? It is very annoying!
