Have to wonder what ITV2, 3, 4 etc are going to show in HD as they mainly seem to consist of ancient repeats from ITV 1.

Sadly now the only HD channel I want is that new Sky Atlantic one, following Murdoch's grubby theft of Mad Men from the BBC.

A decent collection of HD channels now. Perhaps now will be a good time to group them all together on the EPG to save searching for them all.

why not do as i do and save all the HD channels as favourites, then they will all be grouped together.

Yes I've also set the HD channels as my favourites. You can also go to the TV guide and there is an option to view only the HD channels.

when in the tv guide you can already choose to filter just High Definition channels.

It is a huge disapointment that as soon as we get Sky1 HD we are told all the premium worth while content is moving to a new channel.triume

Still no offical word from virgin about ITV2 HD. Virgin are very poor at keeping their customers up to date on new channels etc, aren`t they?

These channel negotiations always seem to go to the 11th hour. There could be a slight delay according to Big Red, but it will arrive very soon.
I know it's a very popular channel, but I can't recall ever watching anything on it.

iscariot said...

Yeah not watched much on ITV2 myself either. Vampire Diaries about the only one I can recall off hand.

The missus watches the Peter Andre & Katie Price (or whatever she's called these days) scripted fly-on-the-wall rubbish on ITV2.

I would quite like ITV4HD for the BTCC & BSB coverage - not sure if that's filmed in HD though. Whatever, it'll still look better on a higher bandwidth channel.
