Living HD testing

There are previews showing on Living HD (channel 110), albeit just in standard definition to my eyes.

Yes you are right, it is in sd rather than hd at the moment.

I'm all for the notion that you can't test a 100% of a live service, but still, if not broadcast in HD, how on earth are they testing bandwidth constraing, image/sound quality etc.

Bizarre!

It's what they call a "barker", just a promotion for the new channel rather than an actual test I think. It does show that they have a fair bit of HD in the Living portfolio, probably on a par with FX. Could start on Monday but more likely to be September I think.

Just noticed that the TV schedule for LivingHD vanishes at 8pm on Monday night... There's then a 30 minute gap in the schedule that's blank before from 8:30pm it says "no information available". Seems consistent with the theory that it's starting on Monday.
