Vincenzo Mesce: According to
UTV signs new network deal - UTV Live News
UTV HD should be on Sky shortly. UTV HD should be available on channel 103 via an aerial if you have a TV with Freeview HD built-in or a Freeview HD box.

Marty: Is it the HD channels from BBC, UTV and Channel 4 that you are missing?

A location, preferably in the form of postcode is really required where the query relates to a reception issue.

Marty: A quick google shows that your Samsung does not have a Freeview HD tuner (DVB-T2) inside it. RTE2 HD is a different system in that it uses MPEG4 over DVB-T to allow it to switch between SD and HD when needed.

Marty: See specs:

22-inch ES5000 Series 6 Full HD 1080p Slim LED TV | UE22ES5000W - Samsung UK - OVERVIEW

It contains only a DVB-T tuner, and not a DVB-T2 one as well. These are the signal standards.

The Republic of Ireland's Saorview system comprises of a single DVB-T multiplex which carries standard definition services and RT?? Two HD.

The UK's Freeview system uses DVB-T for standard definition broadcasts and DVB-T2 for high definition broadcasts. Hence it can't pick up high definition versions of BBC One, BBC Two, UTV/ITV and Channel 4.
