Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

BBC2 Scotland is quite different to BBC2 England - not just 20 minutes of Newsnight.

From 7pm to 9pm tonight (19th Oct) - BBC2 Scotland is different to the main BBC2.

Saturday and Sunday evening are also different.

Most evening the BBC2 nations have variations from the BBC2 England service.

Thanks for the correction.

If this is what's going on, because of their platform neautrality commitment, I imagine that they will want to do the same on satellite and DTT, however, when 700MHZ is eventually cleared aren't the PSB channels expected to emit in HD only? If this theory is correct, it would be scuppered by this. Maybe the BBC expect to be able to afford to make the regions operate in full HD by 2020??

@ jj20x Do the scans give any indication of any DVB type that might be used?

I highly doubt BBC channels would be among the 16 hidden channels. This is a bit of a mystery, but I think POP Max may be one of them. This is because Kix Power disappeared and data is still available for channel 738, so I wouldn't rule out the likes of Pop Max and Chart Show TV.

Freesports hopefully is one of them.
