The BBC has confirmed plans to launch a high definition version of BBC One in the autumn.

BBC One HD will offer a HD simulcast of the channel, including HD versions of EastEnders, Holby City and The One Show.

The channel's autumn schedule in HD will also include Strictly Come Dancing, Human Planet and Waterloo Road.

BBC One HD will be made available on Freesat, Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media.

The channel will operate in addition to the BBC HD channel, which will also extend its regular broadcast hours over the "coming months" from nine to 12 hours a day.

From the BBC:
[quote]That means that in the future - once you have a fully-connected HD set in your home - you will be able to enjoy all the BBC One programmes made in HD (including the vast majority of programmes shown in the evenings) without the need to change channels.

And if you don't fancy a BBC One programme, BBC HD which will operate for longer hours than it has done previously will be able to offer you an alternative including Top Gear, Later With Jools Holland, and new drama, comedy, factual and children's programmes.

These two HD channels from the BBC will be available whatever digital television platform you choose, provided, in the case of Freeview, that HD has rolled out to your area.[/quote]

 


Obviously its a bit too early to know what frequency it will be on or what sort of availability it will be like (ie BBC 1 or BBC2), suffice to say that it will be available free to air on Freesat HD, Sky HD and other HD receivers.

As I said "it will be available free to air on Freesat HD, Sky HD and other HD receivers."

So, to watch  ANY HD channels you need a HD satelllite receiver - either Freesat HD, Sky HD, or any other HD receiver - prices range from 200 euros to 600 euros depending on make, model, with HDD record functions etc)

To get the exisiting BBC HD,  you will need a satellite dish capable of receiving BBC Channel Islands - they are on the same frequency. (nothing has been said about hwer the new BBC1HD chanenl will be yet so I cannot comment on its reception here in Spain - it may be as BBC1 CI or as BBC2!)

And a HD TV with a HDMI input

Hubby has just said to tell you we've had it since having our 1.9m sat dish March 2009! We have a Humax Freesat+ box & watch it on 108

No. Sorry.Hubby is wrong.

You have the "BBC HD" channel.

This is "BBC One HD".

The new channel will be a full simulcast of BBC 1...just like ITV1 HD and C4HD are of ITV1 and C4.

whereas the BBC HD channel you currently have is just a "best of BBC in HD" channel operating with limited hours.

So when this new channel launches you will have TWO channels from the BBC in HD -

BBC One HD

and

BBC HD Channel.

As I posted:

The channel will operate in addition to the BBC HD channel, which will also extend its regular broadcast hours over the "coming months" from nine to 12 hours a day.

Hubby owes you a meal out!!! (And me I think!) as apology!!!

You mention C4HD. That is not available on freesat is it?

No

C4 HD is not on freesat (yet) and currently requries a sky card to view - either freestfromsky or subscription.

And there are TWO versions of ITV1HD...on is the freesat versions, that is on a weak frequency and whose reception will be similar to BBC2, and then there is a sky card version whose reception is great even on a small 80cm dish!!!

That is clear, thank you.

BTW - the ITV normal ch103 (set to south west region postcode - I read somewhere that this region gives a better freesat signal/image) seems to give a better image on the red button HD service than the dedicated itvhd picture (ch119).

Would you concur?

Baby: some ITV SD regions have upped their resolution in the last few weeks...i cannot rememeber what the best resolutions ITV 1 regions are

Mfish: F1 in upscaled HD...i was reading somehting earlier this morning that FOM, who provide the TV coverage for F1, are waiting for the latest 3D kit before offering HD and 3D F1 racing, as there is no point in upgrading once for HD and spending more on further 3D kit....F1 has been in HD on a few other eurobroadcsaters for the last few years, but again, its just upscaled...until FOM provide a HD feed then it will not be in true HD....
