The same multiplex is also broadcasting Al Jazeera in high defintion in HD.

Another "new" feature is Freeview is now showing a short region code on standard definition BBC ONE

And, congratulations to The York Channel and Made in Teesside, who have won their local TV licences.

thanks Des
Next time in the market for a new TV i will pay more attention
As i said above it's not that big a problem as my SD is virtually as good as HD so i guess i'm lucky
i have the Panasonic VT20 which sold for £1300 back in 2010

Rob: If you are receiving the test transmission then it would seem likely that you will receive the services when they come on air as it would seem unlikely that the test transmission is more powerful than what it will be like when they are on air.
