From November, viewers who have HD, either via Freesat, Freeview, Sky or Virgin, will be able to tune in to the new, dedicated BBC One HD channel, which will simulcast with BBC One. Like its standard definition counterpart, BBC One HD will broadcast 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It hasn’t made the regular Sky EPG so you’ll need to tune it in. It’s really easy – here’s how on a Sky HD box.
1/ With your digibox turned on, press the “Services” button
2/ Select ‘Options’ and then scroll over to “Add Chnls”
Update: (July 2011)
Symbol: 23000 (used to be 22000).
Press the Yellow ‘Find Channels’
Select BBC 1 HD and Press ‘Select’ when complete.
You’ll now find BBC 1 HD in the ‘Other Channels’ . Just in time for Match of the Day (which is just amazing in HD!).
