David: There should be no difference in the picture quality for each channel as they all use the same bandwidth on Freeview HD.

Sorry Brian I did not say that I'm on Freesat in post sorry for missing that out, as we are in the present posts talking satellite Ch4.
I have no experience of Freeview HD only SD on that.
So what you think of Ch4 on Freesat do you think it same as other Freesat HD or better?

David: I have to say on my Freesat set-up there is no difference in the quality between BBC One HD, BBC HD and Channel 4 HD, as long as actual HD content is being shown.

I have been watching Channel 4 HD for several months using Freesat and I have much enjoyed it. However, about a month ago the signal stopped and I can no longer get either sound or picture. Could you please explain to me why this may be?

We live in S.Wales using Freeview and am really disappointed to find that Channel 4 HD is not available and we have to put up with the Welsh language S4C in HD instead on Channel 53. How can this be fair? Making the majority suffer for the sake of a tiny minority. I would be very interested to know how many watch this Channel in Wales and how much it costs the licence and tax payer!

Martin: It does not cost the Licence anything because the Licence goes to the BBC.

If you are in an area where you can receive from one of the English transmitters, such as across the Severn Estuary, then you may be able to pick up Channel 4 HD.

Will you have a streaming website? I am in the U.S. so we don't get your broadcast. I have managed to find a couple of your shows shown on 4HD but I would rather stream from your site than have to search for bad blurry old episodes of your shows.
