    Well, it's not even a channel as such. Just the occasional offering in HD. I only tuned it for football. There's a listings for ITV HD here:

    Freesat - ITV HD Schedule.

    The paint will have dried before the next offering in HD.:rolleyes:

    The static black/white ITV HD placeholder card seems to have been replaced. Now much more of a 'screensaver':)

    The screensaver isn't on for long at a time - then the text returns.

    The 'screensaver' type was shown last time I looked - immediately after football a few days ago, now it's back to the plain old ITV 1 HD placeholder.:thumbsdow

    Now broadcasting 24/7. Also Virmin are advertising that they will be carrying ITV HD from April 1st 2010, so hopefully sky will soon follow suit and host it properly.

    Channel 178 on the Sky EPG from next Friday....so recordable from then.

    However, as with Virgin only for English and Welsh viewers.

    Sky viewers in Scotland and Ireland are not getting ITV 1 HD on 178.

    It will be on 24/7 with HD when available and upscaled when not.

    It has, in fact been doing that already for a week now if you tune into the usual 10510 on other channels and four other versions now tunable (10000, 10001, 7480 and 7481) all of which seem to be showing the same 24/7 simulcast of ITV 1 London HD.
