BBC test HD channel for Freeview


by David Allen

Although the BBC HD channel has been available for some time, through satellite with Sky and with the latest addition to the digital market Freesat, those viewers who have been with Freeview have been without, but that is due to change.

The BBC is to begin testing the HD channel for the viewers with Freeview, but only from the transmitter in Guildford for now.

There is the possibility that the BBC in HD will be rolled out throughout the entire Freeview digital network by the end of 2009.

This is good step forward not just for the BBC, but for the Freeview network and the viewers who use this method of receiving their digital TV at home.

The system that they will be using is DVB-T2, the second generation DVB-T which is supposed to be around thirty per cent more efficient.
