Briantist: A few days ago I mentioned that a new HD channel had started on the same Astra 2D transponder as the BBC HD and BBC One HD channels. The channel is identified by its SID number 6942 and at the moment is encrypted. I have now noticed that when I press the info button on the remote control it shows the now and next information. This information relates to ITV 1.

NottsUK: It could be a new regional variation. LyngSat has it as ITV1 London, so it's possible that they're going to move it from its current home on 10832 H.

Mike Dimmick: On the now and next information on this ITV1 HD channel, SID number 6942, it is showing Meridian News and Weather. I think it is any ones guess as to which regional variation it will eventually be.

NottsUK: ITV1 HD Meridian South-East is currently on Astra 2B, 11973 V - could be they want to make this free-to-air, joining London and Granada.
ITV sells advertising for different blocks of the country, ranging from parts of the franchise areas (micro-regions, based around one or two terrestrial transmitter areas) to whole franchise areas (regions) and combinations (macro-regions). Currently ITV1 HD appears to run on the macro-region level, with London and Granada (representing the North Macro - Granada, Yorkshire, Tyne Tees and Border) on Freesat and Sky, and Central West (representing the Midwest Macro - Central, Wales, West, Westcountry) and Meridian South-East (representing the South East Macro - Meridian and Anglia) on Sky only.

The next logical step if they were launching a new variant would probably be to provide the West Macro (Wales, West, Westcountry - Midwest Macro without Central) with its own service based on ITV1 Wales, which is what they've done for ITV1+1.
Each ITV1 micro-region has its own stream on satellite, but only some of them are free-to-air - one representative of each news region is. The news region map now looks a bit different:
ITV Local | Local Regional News & Weather - ITV

Mike Dimmick: ITV1 HD Meridian South-East disappeared off of Astra 2B at the weekend. The channels now on this transponder, 11973 V, are, Sony TV Asia, ITV1 Central South, ITV1 Central East and ITV1+1 (Wales). All encrypted.

Kevin Evans: Assuming you mean ITV1 +1, ITV skimped on equipment. They only had space for six variants on satellite, so only provided enough delay equipment and hired enough monitoring for those six variants.

The six:

London
Granada
Yorkshire West (Emley Moor)
Wales
Meridian South-East
Central West (Sutton Coldfield)

Wales, the West, and Westcountry regions all get ITV1 +1 Wales. Meridian and Anglia get Meridian South-East (Meridian is divided into South and South-East news regions). All of Central gets Central West (ITV1 Central is split West/East Midlands). I'm not sure which service Border gets. I believe Tyne Tees gets Yorkshire West - again, Yorkshire is normally split east/west.

Why these groupings? ITV sells advertising in macro-regions. There is a 'West' macro consisting of Wales, West and Westcountry, and a 'South East' macro consisting of Meridian and Anglia. There's also a 'North' macro but the Granada region is presumably too large or too important not to have a separate service.

Some of the satellite variants are encrypted, so the choice on Freesat is even more limited.

Hi, I have a sky hd box with subscription in my lounge in which I can watch ITV1 HD on channel 178, but I cannot get it in my second sky hd box in the dinning room. Is it not supposed to be free to air? The second box has got an old viewing card.
