BBC confirm BBC Two HD launch details

The BBC have confirmed the launch details for BBC Two HD today.

It was previously announced the channel would be launching this month, but some points have changed.

BBC Two HD will launch on the 26th March.

Sky customers will find it on channel 142 (next to BBC One HD on 141) not the current number BBC HD appears on (169).

Virgin Media customers will find it on channel 187.

BBC Two HD will be on Freesat channel 109, Freeview channel 102 and BT Vision+ channel 852.

You will only be able to receive it on those services if you have an HD box, and may need to retune your set top box to pick up the changes (this doesn’t apply to Sky, Virgin Media or BT Vision+ customers).

BBC HD will close down to be replaced with BBC Two HD on that day.
