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/...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.)
