Brian Springthorpe: Channel 4 HD is broadcast from all Freeview transmitters on the same multiplex as the other HD channels. It is LCN52 except for Wales which has S4C Clirlun instead.

Weren't these channels previously encrypted due to some licencing laws or the possibility of being view outside the UK? How did they eventually get around this, anyone know?

Just have the SD box, can't help but I suspect the HD versions are encrypted to tie you into Sky.
