I saw this on the planner last night and thought I'd give everyone a heads up. I didn't have HD in time for the World Cup so it'll be a good comparison with the Sky Sports coverage.

Maybe it is only stereo, but you can turn the annoying TV commentators off and listen to FiveLive ... or the crowd. Much better :D

Excuse my ignorance here, but how can I get BBC HD? Is it listed on the EPG? I have my HD install arranged for tomorrow but I know my existing Sky Digital box doesn't have BBC HD listed in the EPG, can I add it manually?

BTW, I don't have a UK sub.

BBC HD is currently on channel 145 and will show up when you get your HD Box in the additional "HD Channels" section of the menu next to "planner".

Wow, what with the Man Utd v Aston Villa Match on Sunday at 1:50pm, its gonna be a bumper weekend of football HD goodness!!:thumbsup:

Are you sure you will be able to do that on the HD service?
Not 100%, but I'm sure I did it recently.
I thought it was a HD game....but now you've got me thinking... :confused:

I have been given a bit of a heads up on this weekends BBC HD FA cup matches they will be doing some strict monitoring of the number of viewers that watch the games and also the number that record it onto pvrs. They are doing this as to see if the number of HD viewers is worth the extra money it costs to cover the game in HD.
I would expect good quality productions for these games even better than the previous England home games as BBC Resources have gained quite a bit of experience in the last few months with filming live obs in HD as showed by the NYE fireworks.

Well we must be sure to flood the BBC with praise and gratitude once the final whistle blows then!

Yes the BBC will be showing at least the next two rounds in HD its just the timing of this round fits in some reports that need completing as part of the trial dont forget that the whole BBC HD trial report and case study needs to be completed and published by 19/05/07 so the results need to be analysed and findings reported.
I believe they also plan to do live HD obs for the Rugby 6 nation games,as yet not confirmed grand national plus some events.

Oh i forgot about the Euro 08 qualifiers coming up in Feb on BBC HD, i would imagine that the rest of this years fa cup will be in Hd except possibly the final strange as it seems as last I heard was that BBC Resources and Sky Sports couldnt agree on a couple of technical things such as BBC wanted to be the host broadcaster using their ob facilities while Sky want to use Visions who do Premiership for them but only one can do it.

Better yet, we need as many HD fans to be watching these games LIVE. None of this timeshifting lark :nono: :D . If Beeb HD get a high number of viewers for these games then that will count when the decision is made to extend the trial.

Yes it will be better if it was watched live rather than time shifted and it is things like this and feedback they recieve which will help with the decision.
I believe they will compare it with the Sky live Fa cup match as well also while the game is on they will look to see how the figure compare with other programmes on air to see the viewing share they get. I've checked this evening and im told it will be done on Sky,NTL and Telewest although trying to get the figure back from cable companies can be hard to obtain and unreliable normally with standard reporting.

What I found interesting was that Gary Lineker actually highlighted that both matches were on 'the BBCs HD service' at the end of Match of the Day earlier this week. Its the first time I've ever heard mention of the HD service on a main channel.

and how exactly do they plan to do this?


I do find it odd that although most sky customers have phone lines, I don't think they post back viewing habits to sky. Surely that'd be worth a fortune for targetted marketing etc, and be way more accurate than neilsen (or whatever we use over here - probably just ask a couple of grannies and students in the street what they watched last night)

Sky recently invited large numbers of people to join their viewer panel for this purpose http://www.skyviewerpanel.com/
I got an invite, but declined.

Some interesting info on it http://www.thinkbox.tv/server/show/ConWebDoc.236

Well yes Sky did invite people to join the panel but im told it didnt go to well most people declined strange thing is you cant join yourself you have to be asked.
But anyway Sky can actually use the data taken from anybodys HD box to report on viewing figures/interactive applications used it is part of the contract and this is how it will be done. Sky only need your permission to sell the data on to other companies and this is what the viewer panel have agreed to do.

I've joined the viewer panel and I have definatley not agreed to have my data shared with third parties. Indeed, the invitation to join explicitly ruled out sharing of data with marketing companies.

I wouldn't have touched it with a barge pole otherwise.

Well im not 100% sure what the panel have been told and you probaly have agreed for the data to be shared with marketing agencies but the main use is to provide data on many things such when big games on tv does the sale of beer increase in shops just before and to link tv programmes to brands like if new advert comes out how often you view it. the software is very clever on its reporting. But unless on panel the only data Sky collect from boxes is viewing data to use in house and broadcasters.

looking at the t&c of the viewer panel it says that information is shared with 3rd parties, but only anonymously.

Who will your information be shared with?

Other than for data processing or when required by law, Sky will never share any individual viewer panel information with any other company.

Sky will contract data processing companies such as TNS to maintain the systems which store, process and analyse viewer panel information. There are some circumstances under which either Sky or a data processing company can be required by law to divulge personal information to a regulatory authority.

We will publish summarised reports about the Sky Viewer Panel research. These reports will never identify any individual household.

Anonymous information about households and their viewing data will be made available to third parties for them to do their own analysis and prepare their own summarised reports for publication. For example, other broadcasters may also want to use anonymous viewer panel data to demonstrate the popularity of their channel.
Sky will make sure your viewer panel information is kept safely and that confidentiality is protected at all times.
