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.

Steve: If you have Freesat HD or Sky HD, just do a "manual search" on the 11023MHz Horizontal DVB-S2 23000-2/3 8PSK transponder.

Willie Bone: I flicked between 1 and 101 - the Studio is definitely in HD, though some of the news content is SD.

Hello Michael, I viewed The Ten O'Clock News followed by a short Reporting Scotland news bulletin on Monday, January 14th. Both news programmes were not in HD and I double checked the Sky+HD programme details flag for the Tuesday evening lineup which lists both programmes as widescreen (only).
However, I did check BBC Breakfast Time this morning and discovered the Scottish regional opt out news bulletin was indeed partly in high definition. Kind Regards..Willie

As I suspected, no sign of it on the Sky EPG.

I assume Freesat is the same @?
