Well nothing has been switched over recently, so currently nothing.

But some people are interested in the things that happen behind the scenes on the cable network. (There are other forums where there are even more technical topics. )

No one is forcing you to read this thread, and you know what the topic is about now so you know you are not interested, it's not like the thread has just started.

There's multiple threads on this forum I've read once, decided aren't of interest, and never went back.

I'd imagine most people are only interested in 5-10% of the stuff on this website, but everyone will like a different 5-10%.

Nice spot MB. Pretty sure that was the only SD channel they ran in any country (based on looking at the LoveNature website many months ago).

Question now is, is VM getting the UHD version like Sky is? Or will VM just continue to show their shows on their Ultra HD channel instead?

Sky do not have the UHD version of Love Nature - but offer some of the programmes to download in UHD.

It isn't really a separate channel. VM generate it by downscaling.

I didn't say they did, I said "like Sky is" not "like Sky has", as I thought I'd read they made a deal for the linear UHD channel as well as on-demand content, but neither, to my knowledge, had launched yet.

If I've misremembered then I apologise.

I didn't know VM were willing to do that. Many thanks spiderplant.

Re: Channels switched to MPEG4

The pop-ups are already in place on the 4 channels moving to 273-276 (see my post this morning on Coming Soon).

Nothing on H2 though (last time I checked), which is odd as it clearly has to be moving for PBS. Maybe the info slate is in place for it...have you seen any sign MB?

I have only seen signs on TiVo.

I think EPG saying that "Forces TV has moved to 274". Will appear on DBR via CO47 on SID 1218 or SID 1222 over this weekend.

I see that RXTV is calling them "Factual channels" but TiVo is calling them "Documentaries Channels"
