Read this: Update on changes to BBC One HD on Freeview/Youview in England

Summary: We will be retiring the red slate that previously advised viewers to go to channel 1 for local programming, as viewers will no longer need to switch to channel 1 for local news and then back to 101 for BBC One in HD. Making BBC One HD available on a regional basis is a major undertaking for BBC teams and our suppliers, so we are going to launch regional versions of BBC One HD in two phases. The final place we need to ensure BBC One HD for the English regions is fully available is on BBC iPlayer. - link

It's not true.
The pink (not red) caption is not retiring. It's moving from BBC 1 HD to BBC 1 SD.
When it has moved to BBC1 SD it may say something different.
On FreeSat and Sky, is says you can't watch local programs on the standard definition channel.

Mark A:

It is true, the reason it is doing that on Freesat is because the plan is to close the SD channels next year. There is no plan to do that on Freeview so the slate is being retired on Freeview/Youview as it says.
