High definition (HD or HDTV) is a different (and newer) standard of digital television broadcasting which offers sharper, more detailed pictures and surround sound. Only viewers with an "HD" television set, a special HD set top box receiver, and reception of a high definition service will experience HD programming. HD broadcasting first began to appear in the UK in 2006/2007, and is becoming more and more widely available. (In April 2015), it is available on:
• Freeview HD
• Sky HD
• Freesat HD
• Virgin HD
• YouView Box
Due to a change in the way that Film4+1 is broadcast on Freeview, unless you have a Freeview HD TV or set top box you will no longer be able to receive the Film4+1 service post Thursday 20 November. You will still be able to receive Film4 as normal on channel 14.
Unfortunately, we are aware that some viewers have already lost the +1 service, if you have an HD box, please try a retune, if you don't have Freeview HD, then I am afraid that the +1 service is no longer available.
If you are unsure how to retune your box, the Digital UK website has full details - CLICK HERE
