If you live in Scotland, and have Freeview HD, channel 101 will switch on Monday from being the "national service without news" to the full-blown BBC One Scotland service in HD.

If you live in the Scottish Borders and use the Caldbeck or Selkirk transmitter groups, you might have to do a "first time install" to get BBC One Scotland HD.

Again (if you live in Scotland) - Freesat (on 108) and Freesat-from-Sky (on 143) viewers will find the Scottish schedule automatically from Monday.

On satellite, the new BBC One Scotland (and Wales) services are on the BBC DSat8 transponder, which is:

ASTRA 1N, transponder 61 - 11023MHz Horizontal DVB-S2 23000-2/3 8PSK





BBC One regions by population.

David: No. In England and Wales, BBC One HD will continue to be the London-without-regional-news version that has been broadcast up to now.

101 on Freesat will continue to be BBC One in SD, as will channel 1 on Freeview.

BBC 1 HD is on 976 on the Sky EPG in NI.

I don't think BBC 1 NI HD is currently available to satellite viewers in the rest of the UK ?

Maybe someone could confirm.

I am sorry to hear this news. For it means I will no longer be able to access the 'national service' on Freeview, when BBC Scotland decide to opt out. Losing radio stations to accommodate a Gaelic TV channel was bad enough. It really adds up to a diminution of choice.
