BBC One HD - now on Swisscom TV

Evening all,

For those who make do without giving Murdoch any more money than need be, Swisscom TV now has BBC One in HD (BBC1 HD).

I don't know what channel it is dedicated to within the channel set up, as I have replicated a Freeview channel pattern, but is there!

Suggestion - still keep BBC1 and ITV within the last two channels of the sequence. Sometimes the HD channels trip out if you have a lot going on using the Interweb. We have had to revert back to normal definition at times.

Just to note, that not all Beeb programmes are broadcast in HD, as I have just found out, so have BBC1 Normal Def on a back up slot!

But good news, and I still say that for those newbies who have been told Sky is the be all and end all, and that you have to get a dish, I would look no further for a hassle free set up.

I don't work for Swisscom BTW, but I cannot recommend this package highly enough. ANd no ridiculous dish on the balcony either!

Channel 233 for us mere mortals

All BBC one HD programs are at least upscaled to HD if not native HD

To the OP, thanks for the post.....but totally off topic being a (rather depressed) Hammers fan I noticed your avatar.

Have you seen that they're playing in the Uhrencup this Summer in Grenchen?

When you refer to Swisscom TV, do you mean Bluewin? HD is only available in certain areas within Switzerland. I can receive it in the my house in Vaud, but not in the Valais.

Nope.....

I am actually in the UK on business this week - I have still got my membership, and I can easily get to Upton Park today - refuse to do so. We are just going to get thumped by Sunderland.

I will not digress anymore.....

I hope that the rest of you on Swisscom TV are enjoying the new HD Channel.

Be aware that not all programs are the same as on BBC HD in the UK, what we get here is BBC HD International. I don't know what the differences are exactly, only noticed because Formula One is not shown in HD here, but friends in the UK assure me it is there.

I think the OP is referring to a new channel BBC 1 HD.
You a correct there is a channel BBC HD, but there is also BBC1 HD which is exactly the same as BBC 1 but in HD.
