Postby SpanishBlue » Thu Mar 04, 2010 11:27 pm

Anyone lucky enough to own a Sky+ HD Box might be interested in the link below.

Basically, it's an idiots guide on how to get ITV HD on your Sky+ HD Box. I haven't tried it myself as I don't own a Sky+ HD Box, but have been told be several people that do, that it does work.

I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work but you would probably have to wait a week to find an ITVHD program to watch to see if it works!

Apart from some football and the occasional episode of the Bill there is virtually nothing being transmitted.

I agree there is normally very little to watch. However this weekend, all 4 FA Cup quarter finals are live on ITV. :D

I got instructions from another forum ages ago and it definately does work.

Watched the Star wars films when they were on and watch the football on it.

Only prob is there is no timetable so it is a bit hit and miss.

ITV1 HD will be at channel 119 on Freesat and on channel 178 on Sky from April 2nd
The full ITV1 schedule will be simulcast on the new channel, with the majority of peak time content available in ‘native’ HD, including all live football, and an increasing range of drama, factual and entertainment programming. Other ITV1 content including GMTV and the daytime schedule, will be upscaled

In other words no real change.

All HD TVs and also the Freesat receivers upscale from SD to HD so it's unlikely to make any difference.

Apart from football the rest of the HD schedule is a joke!
