Hmmm, rxtvinfo.com has got a story about Sky Glass subscribers being the first to get HD streaming versions of the BBC regions in the very near future. I initially thought that the HD versions of the other channels might be for Glass users as well to tempt people to purchase Glass - but if this is the case why would a device that has no satellite connection need dummy entries in the satellite EPG/SDT?

Paul.:

There have been all sorts of stories on various websites (none of which are that reliable) about when regional HD is going to appear after the BBC said "by the end of 2022". A number of stories were completely untrue.

The most reliable information now comes from the latest statement by the BBC -

Of course many stations can be listened to on-line, there is a selection of on-line Radio players.

Freesat
Can anyone suggest a reliable tuner/recorder please? We are on our third and they have all proved unreliable. Manhattan, Humax, and Freesats own brand. The current one locks up regularly, and fails to respond to the remote.( Yes we have tried new batteries.) Thanks in advance!

It would be so good to have a list of +1 Channels. To set a recorder is a nightmare having to find all the +1 Channels. HELP!

This list from Freeview has all the channels
https://www.freeview.co.uk/corporate/platform-management/channel-listings and which multiplexes they are carried on. Reception of all multiplexes but especially COM7 and Local will depend on location, not all areas are served.

Short answer, no.

Although many Freeview boxes and smart TVs have an iPlayer app intalled out of the box, all iPlayer content is delivered over the Internet.

If you have a mobile contract with unlimited data you could use the iPlayer app on the phone and Chromecast the picture to a suitably equipped TV. It's still using the Internet, but via your phone.
