BBC to launch five new HD channels by 2014

The BBC have announced plans for five new HD TV channels to launch by early 2014.

BBC News HD, BBC Three HD, BBC Four HD, CBeebies HD and CBBC HD are all pencilled in and will be offered to all digital television platforms that carry HD channels - this includes Satellite (99% coverage) and Freeview (98.5% coverage for BBC Three and CBBC - the remainder will use new HD capacity).

This is to then be followed by proposals to launch local variants of BBC One HD and BBC Two HD to match their SD equivalents.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
