ITV1+1, ITV1HD, BBC One HD regional services on Freeview

I have updates the site to show correct details of the regional services on ITV1+1, ITV1 HD and BBC One HD as these may not be quite what you expected.|

I have updates the site to show correct details of the regional
published on UK Free TV

For cost-saving reasons, both the BBC and ITV do not currently provide full regional services on certain channels.

ITV only provide four regions for ITV 1 HD: London, Granada, Central West and Meridian Southampton, plus STV West HD is provided by STV in Scotland.

Viewing ITV 1 HD outside these regions, the closest region to this list is provided.

In addition, ITV 1 +1 is also limited to the above regions, with the addition of Yorkshire and ITV Wales. Again, you may find you have a different region on Freeview 33 for ITV 1 +1 than for Freeview 3, ITV 1.

On Freesat, or fSfS without a card, Yorkshire and ITV Wales are not on ITV1+1, and an alternative region is provided.

These regions are now clearly indicated on the site:

ITV 1 HD and ITV1+1 regions, plus BBC One HD regions.

The BBC currently provides, on Freesat HD and Freeview HD a single national BBC One HD service that has no regional news and no opt-outs in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Geoff Nice: Wednesday 20th July 2011, but note " SDN will temporarily operate on channel 49 (at 14kW ERP) from the first stage of Sudbury's switchover until mid-2012. Arqiva A will remain on its preswitchover channel (54) from switchover until mid-2012. Arqiva B will remain on its pre-switchover channel (50+) until late 2011, and then temporarily move to channel 63 (at 2.2kW ERP), before adopting its final allocation of channel 56 during mid-2012"

Josh: Given that Danielle Nagler (head of BBC HD) is leaving and the DQF process, there could be changes in priorities. I've covered this one the BBC TWO HD, some thoughts | - independent free digital TV advice page.

As I reported elsewhere on ukfree tv I recently purchased a new freeview HD recorder to be ready for the forthcoming switch at Belmont.
However on tuning I found out I already had the four HD channels which turned out to be from Sandy Heath.
When I tuned into ITV1 HD the banner was showing Meridian News but was showing London news.
Arising from the above what is the difference between Singal Quality and Signal Strength

We have a Humax 9300 recorder and have just purchased a Panasonic TX L 32 G20BA full HD Freeview and freesat connections. Every night when watching any program on humax or tv at 6.45pm with or without the Humax on the program stops and goes blank for a few seconds and then returns. Have wired it up for freeview only. My post code is PL27 7QT Cornwall.Have you any idears or have you heard of this from others?
