BBC One HD

BBC One HD launched on 3 November 2010 as a high-definition simulcast of network BBC One. Available on all digital platforms, the station carries a DOG in the corner of the screen, and most of any programming which is not originally sourced in HD is upscaled – although the announcements might lead viewers to suggest all material is in HD. During regional opts either a holding screen is shown, or a specific region’s output is broadcast, e.g. for Inside Out.

Unlike ITV1 HD, idents on BBC One HD do not carry the ‘HD’ identifier, however all promos and presentation on Network BBC1 and in the nations now carry an HD identifier which animates on at the start of the promo endboard form-up and animates off before the very end (whereupon the Wales/NI/Scotland appears, if applicable).
