Wait, hang on a moment, where it says about the following digital services will be available, one of them says "BBC One HD Scotland". I thought that there was no regional or country variations just a national BBC One HD for now. Does this mean that the BBC are now starting to get the regional/country variations sorted? Also, instead of ITV1 HD, shouldn't it say STV HD instead?

Any reason why we are not getting any more channels. We only seem to be getting the basic range of BBC 1&2, and the chanels 3, 4 and 5 and their counterparts. What has happened to all the others, I see we are getting "gay Rabbit", but not Dave or any of the other entertainment channels. This makes no sense what so ever!

I also noticed this week that the signal strength for my analogue was increased dramatically when the first part of the digital was put on, have you always had the technology to do this and just didn't bother, leaving us with a poor reception for years when we could have been watching a half decent picture!

tiny yedi: This transmitter is a public service transmitter, the commercial multiplex operators did not regard this transmitter as profitable to broadcast from.

Gay Rabbit is provided by Teletext Ltd who are a public service broadcaster and have an allocation on the D3+4 multiplex.
