HD and SD TV

Well, I am pleased that Sky have swapped HD and SD channels round. Well, many of them. Odd that a few are not swapped like BBC1/BBC1 HD...

Anyway, this afternoon I actually got to see what it was like not being able to tell the difference. Eye drops for an eye test making everything bright and blurry for a few hours.


  1. BBC1 HD was not swapped because they only have one HD channel for that, whereas BBC1 SD uses one channel per region, e.g. BBC1 London, BBC1 North West, etc. Watch BBC1 HD between 6:30 and 7pm to see why.
