MALCOLM: The Chesterfield transmitter already broadcasts HD channels and has done (along with all other Freeview transmitters) since digital switchover completed back in 2012. You need a TV or set top box with the Freeview HD logo (if you TV says HD Ready that only refers to the screen being able to display a HD source and does not indicate that you have the required DVB-T2 tuner). With the correct equipment you will receive BBC1 HD, BBC2 HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD, Channel 5 HD & CBBC HD from the Chesterfield transmitter. Chesterfield does not broadcast the additional HD channels (such as BBC 4 HD, BBC News HD, BT Sport Showcase HD etc) however these are available from Emley Moor (if you provide a full postcode we can see the predicted coverage for your location and whether the additional HD channels from Emley Moor should be receivable. Also, there is no need to write your entire post in capitals which is generally considered to be shouting and is totally unnecessary.
