The BBC has announced that it will be closing all of its standard definition (SD) channels on Freesat and Sky by the end of March 2024.

This means that viewers who are still using older SD-only set-top boxes will need to upgrade to a newer HD-enabled box in order to continue watching BBC channels.

The BBC says that the move is necessary in order to “ensure that our viewers have access to the best possible viewing experience.” HD channels offer a higher picture quality than SD channels, and the BBC says that it is committed to providing its viewers with the best possible viewing experience.

The BBC has also said that it will be providing support to viewers who need help upgrading to an HD-enabled set-top box. The BBC has a website with more information about the switchover, as well as a helpline that viewers can call for assistance.

The switchover to HD is part of a wider trend in the TV industry. More and more people are now watching TV in HD, and the BBC says that it is important for it to keep up with this trend. The BBC is also hoping that the switchover to HD will encourage more people to watch its channels.
