    I'd like to watch the tonight's Celtic v Elfsborg Champions league game tonight in HD if possible. I live in London and so I can watch it in SD on BBC2 Scotland via Sky but is it possible for me to add the HD version of that channel and if it is how do I do so?
    Any info much appreciated.

    Afaik there are currently no regional variants of BBC2-HD. Even if there was you can't use add channels on a Sky box for DVB-S2 transmissions.

    I am surprised they are not showing it on BBC Two England, quite a decent match in prospect and the beeb are in constant need of decent football coverage.

    Probably a copyright issue.

    Yes, I know you can see it on BBC2 Scotland from anywhere in the UK, but the vast majority of Sky viewers won't realise you can add channels.

    BBC 2 Scotland is on Sky channel 970 in the UK apart from Scotland.

    Sorry, I should have been clearer! :blush:

    What I meant was that the vast majority of viewers are probably unaware that "out of region" channels are available further up the list.
