BBC News Multiscreens – Additional video streams testing on Freeview (channel 302)

Two additional quarter-screen video streams have been testing on channel 302 – in place of where the quarter-screen BBC Parliament video used to be. The two streams will be in addition to the existing two multiscreens. It’s not known when this improved service will launch, but it is rumoured to be coming at some time this month (January). A new MHEG overlay is expected in order to include these two new streams. BBC Parliament went full screen back in November 2005, and the original quarter-screen version was removed earlier this month. More news as we get it.
