BBC Parliament relaunches as a full-screen service on Freeview

Updated: BBC Parliament has now changed to being full-screen on Freeview for the first time in Freeview history. Viewers will need to do a full rescan / factory reset of their channel list to pick up the new full-screen version – as the quarter-screen version is still broadcasting as well. The new full-screen channel can be found at channel 81 after a rescan of your box, and the old quarter-screen version (complete with an updated MHEG explaining it’s now available full screen if you rescan) is still available – on channel 305. This is temporary until it is thought further BBC News Multiscreens will launch very early next year. The new full-screen service includes the same red button functionality as the other BBC channels.
