The BBC have now retracted some of the changes they outlined on their website last week, with regards to BBC One HD swapping EPG positions on Sky we reported yesterday.
The revised information on the BBC website now says that, as of today, BBC One HD has moved to Sky channel 101 only in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In England channel 101 remains the standard definition (regionalised) version of BBC One.
Originally they posted that BBC One HD would move to Sky channel 101 in England but this is no longer the case. BBC One HD England stays on channel 141 and still isn’t regionalised (so no regional news on BBC One HD England).
They say “This week, we are undertaking HD/SD swapping on Sky and Freesat in Scotland and Wales… this means that all viewers in the Nations (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) who subscribe to a Sky HD package will now see their version of BBC One HD at 101 and BBC One SD at 141. Freesat viewers in the Nations will also now see their correct version of BBC One HD at 101 (and BBC One SD at 108)”.
The BBC One HD national variants can be found on Sky channels 976-979.
There have also been some changes on Freesat with BBC Two HD moving to channel 102 in England only (this changes happened on Sky a few months ago too) and BBC Three, BBC Four, CBBC, CBeebies & BBC News swap places with their standard definition counterparts (the same as what happened on Sky a few months ago) to give the HD channels a more prominent position on the Freesat EPG.
