BBC One HD at last

The BBC finally launches BBC One HD on 3 November across all HD platforms: Freesat, Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media.

The new HD channel will simulcast a network version of the BBC One schedule, with the majority of peaktime programmes in HD. Danielle Nagler, Head of HD & 3D says: “The arrival of the UK’s favourite channel in HD – as a second HD channel from the BBC – will increase the range and choice of HD programming we can offer the ever growing HD audience.”

The BBC HD Channel will continue to bring programming such as Top Gear, Wimbledon, children’s programming, golf coverage, great drama, comedy, music and factual programmes from BBC TWO, THREE and FOUR throughout the week. We can also announce that this year we’ll bring viewers some of the last races of this year’s Moto GP in HD as a trial run for the sport on the channel.

BBC One in HD joins ITV 1 as a national linear simulcast HD channel.
