I can confirm it not on BBC ALBA or BBC Parliament here in Scotland. Also in Scotland we have nothing on Channel 113 so Virgin can move BBC Scotland HD to channel 113 or put BBC THREE HD on Channel 113 in Scotland and Wales.

Also I am doing an wee bit of house keeping on my blog so can I ask anyone tell me if UTV HD is on Channel 103 or 113?

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

It will probably be BBC One HD England but allocated to regional service IDs. The regional SIDs were added some time ago but the NIT hasn't yet been updated. Presumably, the change coming next week will simply be the NIT being updated. Nothing is actually testing as such, the old England SID and the new regional SIDs link to the same video and audio streams. Virgin will then be prepared to switch to the actual HD regional services as soon as they become available.

The 858 HD service IDs probably won't be added until the actual HD regions are available.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

In Mansfield (East Midlands) advertises BBC London 14 January 18.30 instead of test card advising you to select 101. How is that an improvement?

It does look promising but I'd advise some caution when making predictions from the EPG. The EPG listing you are seeing is for SID10127 and that service ID doesn't become the London feed, it will end when the services migrate to the new regional SIDs. Anything listed for the channel after the 11th is unreliable. I would normally ask for data for the regional SIDs but, from what I have been told, they have not yet been populated with programme listings. Checking the EPG listings after the change on the 11th will probably be more reliable than checking what is there now.

You aren't seeing the listings for the East Midlands, at the moment, everyone in England is seeing the same listings for service id 10127. Eventually, that service will be swept away and replaced by regional services 10178 to 10191, At the moment, these are still pre-configured for EPG channel 108 and are all labelled "BBC ONE HD" with no region in the name. Check the EPG listings after the change on the 11th for more accurate information.

I was told last night that Local BBC News in HD is set to launch on January 14th on Virgin Channel 108.

But on January 11th you will need to reset any series links you have for BBC 1 HD (Channel 108) as you will move from BBC One HD England to BBC One HD East Mids ahead of you local news starting to be shown in HD from January 14th.

NOTE: I do not work for Virgin Media so all the information I post on Cable Forum, Media Boy Blog or Media Boy on Twitter is subject to change.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

It has now changed to 'This is BBC One HD' - so more likely a guide error.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

What exactly will happen to the series links?
Will they still be there, but won't find any programmes because labelling of the channel has changed?
What happens to any individual recordings set up in the "My Planned Recordings"?
