Had a email today from bbc about bbc HD, Here it is below


Thank you for contacting the BBC with your enquiry.

We have not got a launch date yet for the HD trial. Keep checking
http://www.bbc.co.uk/digital/tv/hdtv.shtml for updates. What I can answer
at this stage is that we will be transmitting MPEG4 DVB-S moving to DVB-S2.

Just like our other satellite broadcasts, the BBC HD trial stream will not
be encrypted, so open standard HD satellite receivers may be able to pick
it up. You need to understand that the BBC's HD trial is due to end after
12 months and such boxes may not receive the full range of on-screen
programme information and interactivity.

I hope you find the information helpful.

I really hope they choose the transponder wisely and not taking one of the vertical transponders on 2D.

Well according to What Satellite they will use Astra 2D 10847V and considering they already shifted BBC Parliament and BBCi to 11954H only seems to confirm this bad news.
