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.
