Central and northern Scotland’s STV has confirmed it will be launching its HD channel on Sky and Freesat on 28th April 2014.

Freesat HD viewers will be able to tune in to STV HD on Freesat channel 119.
Sky viewers will be able to watch STV HD on channel 103 in the STV West region (Glasgow newsroom) or channel 178 in the STV East and ex-Grampian regions.

This is because the STV HD channel will be a simulcast of STV West and eligible for an HD/SD swap on Sky in the region where it matches the SD channel only.

BBC Two HD will launch at 6am on March 26 and will be available on Sky HD (169), Freeview HD/YouView (102), Virgin Media (187), Freesat HD (109) and BT Vision (852).

It will replace the BBC HD channel and be available as before as a subscription-free HD network on all platforms.

It is unclear where HD content from BBC Four and BBC Three may be made available, although it can still be offered via on-demand platform BBC iPlayer.
