You mean only the HD versions will be available? That will **** off
everyone who has equipment that only has a DVB-T (rather than DVB-T2)
tuner. TVs are OK: at a pinch you can buy a set top box to replace the
builtin tuner. But PVRs are a different matter: if you want to make
unattended recordings on various different channels you need a new PVR.


Yep, I can't see it happening until the other side of 2020, and even
then I suspect one T1 mux will remain carrying 'the main five' in SD
for a few more years after that (If DTT as a platform survives beyond
2025 anyway)

There is just CBBC HD.

BBC Four HD is currently on Com 7, so unless Llanddonna is going to
get Com 7, or BBC Four HD is moved to BBC B, no.


I'm not sure why BBC Four can't move to the standard PSB3 mux and
something move from there to COM7. I suppose the "something" is willing
to pay more money for greater coverage than BBC Four is willing to pay.
I suppose they think that children deserve HD more than boring old farts
like us :-)


Well not much longer and at least I won't have to pay for something I
can't receive via Freeview.

This date of 2025 keeps coming up - why?

Does that mean BBC1 local news will get moved to HD? At the moment it
isn't available on BBC1 HD.

In the case of the LLanddona Transmitter there is BBC One Wales HD

I seem to recall when there was real transmitter news put out on the tv
before all day programming, that particular site seemed to be always
undergoing engineering works of one sort or another. Is it in some exposed
environment?
It does seem a bit penny pinching and churlish that so many not that small
transmiter sites do not carry all the channels. Its a scandal.

Freesat is beginning to look attractive for many reasons, and since my
talking box won't work when the band moves occur due to migration to dvb2, I
might just as well buy a talking tv with a sat tuner instead.

You and all the other Freeview Light viewers then.

Have you considered Freesat?
