As the final part of ITV channels becoming HD only come into place (there are two ITV 1 regions still not available in HD!), it has been reported that another ITV SD channel that is not available in HD, will soon be available in HD.
ITV Be is currently only available on Freesat and Sky via satellite in SD.
But it is reported that ITV Be will soon be available in HD via satellite.
Data spotted on the satellites shows that ITV Be HD has appeared, albeit with no video or audio yet, on Frequency 11068 V 23000 3/4 DVB-S2 8PSK on the Astra 2g satellite. So it appears that ITV will be trying to cram 7 HD channels onto its frequencies.
It is thought that ITV Be HD will be available on Sky HD and Freesat HD boxes before Christmas 2023.
