Audio Problem on BBC One HD during Boxing Days MOTD

Football fans went into meltdown on Boxing Day evening when a fault resulted in Match of the Day going on-air without sound on BBC One HD.

The fault appeared to primarily affect the version of BBC One HD broadcast to England, although BBC One HD in Scotland reportedly had a shorter-lived audio fault earlier in the programme.

Further to the news that the BBC HD Channel will be closing, and being replaced by BBC Two HD (http://satandpcguy.com/blog/2013/02/bbc-2-hd-to-launch-in-march-2013/) the BBC have released further details for the launch of BBC Two HD.

BBC Two HD will launch at 6am on Tuesday 26 March 2013.

In most cases, BBC Two HD will use the same channel number as BBC HD.

However, Sky HD viewers will see that we are moving to two new numbers, which allows us to put BBC One HD and BBC Two HD next to each other. (We will also move BBC Alba to 143 on Sky so that it is grouped with other BBC channels.)

 BBC One HD BBC Two HD 
Freeview HD / YouView101102

Virgin Media108187
Freesat HD108109

 

BBC One HD, currently on Sky channel 143, will move to Sky channel 141.

BBC Two HD, currently the BBC HD Channel on Sky channel 169, will move to Sky channel 142.

BBC Alba, currently Sky channel 168, will move to Sky channel 143.
