BBC confirms plans for the HD switch, with an information campaign set to inform viewers on how the changes will affect them.

The switch means the red screen shown during regional programmes on BBC One HD in England will be axed and BBC One HD will appear on channel 101 on every TV platform.

As reported here at the weekend, the BBC is to close its standard definition channels on satellite as part of the switch. HD versions of BBC Alba, BBC Parliament and BBC Two NI will also launch on satellite.

Today, a special information channel launched on Freeview and Freesat channel 799 which tells viewers if their equipment is compatible with the changes to BBC services.

The BBC will be setting up a special website in conjunction with Freesat to inform satellite viewers with SD equipment of their options. The BBC will also run a help scheme to ensure the elderly and vulnerable are supported through the transition.

Freeview viewers with older SD-only equipment won’t need to take any action – SD channels will continue on Freeview.

I'll believe it when I see it!
Of course it'll fit; you just need a bigger hammer.
