BBC channels move to make way for HD

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Readers in the Sheffield area will tomorrow need to retune their Freeview boxes if they want to carry on watching BBC channels.

Freeview said the change will have been implemented by 6am on the morning of 17 March, after which set-tops and tellies will need to be retuned.

The channels are moving to make room for the transmission of HD channels.

Reception of said broadcasts will take a little longer - you'll have to wait for suitable set-top boxes. Newcomer 3View said late last year that its debut Freeview HD box will be out in March. Established player Humax has one in the works too.

Freeview HD uses the DVB-T2 standard to broadcast the MPEG 4 video streams used for the hi-def content. ®
