I'm guessing this means 108 in Scotland is going to be new BBC Scotland channel.

I know. But read denphone's post. The regional version of BBC1 HD for the Nations is moving to 101, the only reason the English regions aren't are they aren't all available in HD.

And all regions except Scotland of BBC2 are moving to 102. Scotland won't have a regional version of BBC2 (at all, even in SD) come January when BBC Scotland launches. The regional SD version has to stay in place for now and then Scotland will get national version of BBC2 HD in January on 102.

Presumably the mobile apps will now stream from the BT Sport HD channels?

By that, I meant that the channels will not disappear completely from the mobile apps just because the SD versions are going? I doubt they'll stream in HD

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

Sorry, misunderstood.
I believe the apps will still stream BT Sports in SD, as before.
There is no concept of channel numbers or SD/HD on the Virgin TV Go app.

When we first saw the information last night on an V+ HD box we just put the info as seen on V+ Boxes online.

Our TiVo boxes has today confirmed BT Sports SD will only close on Virgin.

They are mostly English BBC1 regions aren't they? And there aren't HD versions of most English BBC1 regions, hence why BBC1 HD isn't switching over to 101 on VM anywhere except Scotland,Wales and Northern Ireland.

I'd imagine they'll therefore remain for now.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

No.

Channels are from England (London), Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Plus BBC Two England SD.

I do watch them to see what other parts of UK views are on Brexit.

Silly me. I was getting mixed up with how they are on satellite.

Now I've had a look on EPG I think if they don't remove them they'll make them all HD. Whichever makes sense on the network to VM.
