BBC HD 26/03/2013

Beginning from 26/03/2013 BBC regional news HD station/broadcast shall be broadcast on the relevant “Freeview” channels in HD = This brings an end to having to change the regional channel format from sd/hd/sd/hd/sd/hd? 01/101/01/101........HD!


Well done the BBC!

Source link?

You may be confused. BBC HD becomes BBC 2 HD on the 26th?

yes sources please we would all like this for the regions but if the BBC arent doing it yet then it means nothing. I think they could just send the SD feed on freeview without much difficulty but on satellite it requires ether another whole HD channel for each region or some sort of clever trickery like using the sd channel feed for the time of the regional opt or they heavily compress the opt outs in the space and use sd but putting 15 SD regions in the space of 1 HD channel would result in about a meg for each region and as an sd upscaled to HD image it would look very poor. However if they opened up a little more bandwidth on HD transponders they could potentially put all regions in sd upscaled to HD and partly compressed so would be ok quality.

I don't believe you. Where is the source? Why would an announcement not be made much earlier? Also this wouldn't help satellite even if it were true.

BBC2 has opt-outs in the national regions but not in England. So will these opt-outs also be in HD ?

No they will not be as BBC TWO HD is a UK Wide channel ....

The Nations do NOT opt out of the "London/ England " feed - they run their own schedule showing what programme they want to at the time that they want to ( which may be different from "London" even for the same programme in the same slot.) this has been true since November 1998.

This will continue so there will be 4 variants of BBC Two in SD
- and one HD which is the orginating simulcast for BBC Two SD (England)

This is Different from BBC one where the Nations Orginate in HD which is simulcast on SD. i.e 4 pairs of channels
