BBC Trust to decide on BBC HD channel

The BBC Trust have launched their “public value test” into the BBC HD channel, currently only available as part of a trial on DTT. If approved, the BBC will officially launch the full service on satellite and cable and an overnight stream of the channel on DTT, using bandwidth from multiplex B (allowing viewers with compatible equipment to record programmes for later viewing). A decision is expected in November. The trial will continue to broadcast until then.
