BBC Two HD Channel to launch 26th March 2013
As part of the DQF process of BBC cuts, the BBC HD channel is being replaced by BBC TWO HD. This will be a UK-wide service and will not have the occasional BBC Two opt-outs and presentation in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
BBC TWO HD will be 102 on Freeview HD, 169 on Sky HD and 109 on Freesat HD. The channel won't "HD auto swap" to 102 on Sky.
Janice Hadlow, Controller of BBC Two, said "BBC One HD has already proved to be highly valued by our audiences and IÃ¢â¬â¢m delighted that weÃ¢â¬â¢re able to follow this with the launch of BBC Two in HD. The launch of BBC Two HD will allow us to showcase more of our programmes at their very best Ã¢â¬â helping to highlight our commitment to high quality, engaging and ambitious programmes on BBC Two."
The BBC Two HD channel will be a simulcast network version of the BBC Two England schedule with a raft of new programmes available in HD for the first time including Paul Hollywood - Bread, The Fall, Science Britannica and Keeping Britain Alive as well as old programmes such as Mock The Week, QI and Springwatch.
The BBC HD channel launched in December 2007 and was the UK's first free-to-air, high-definition television channel. Since its launch, the BBC HD channel has broadcast a stand-alone schedule of BBC High Definition output from across the portfolio.
