Hi timx,

SBS HD's schedule is exactly the same as SBS SD's. SBS has HD 24 hours a day.

And the ABC's HD channel schedule is the same as ABC SD's from 3:00pm to midnight every weekday, and from 6:00pm to midnight on Saturday, and from midday to midnight on Sunday, at all other times ABC HD shows an ABC logo screen.

Stickeylabel,

The content on SBS HD is no different to SBS SD. The quality between the two is a different matter altogether.

Perhaps we should save you some time by saying that ABC & SBS don't broadcast any native HD content and that the SD channel is clearer that the 'HD' channel? :blink:

Thought I'd rehash this thread since I went searching for a HD channel program guide and couldn't find one.

Does anyone know if there is one on the net yet?

cheers :)

Those are the only 2 I know of that list 7HD programming, there aren't any yet for 9 HD or TEN HD as none of those have actually started yet.

Thanks for that, I actually use 'yourtv' but just found that my preferences for the page didnt add the new 7HD channel when they added it to the site.

cheers :)

Actually ABC does show HD programming not as much as the commercial stations. Erky Perky, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Rain Shadow, Planet Earth, and other docos throughout the year.

SBS is changing from 576p to 720p sometime next year

Found this one. Seems pretty good (except their channel listing is in alphabetical order rather than ordered by channel no.).

I've normally used yourtv for program listings, but I didn't think that it had HD channels??? Am I missing something?

Yes, you're missing something :) . You need to edit your preferences to display the HD channels in the guide. They currently have 7HD and 10HD listings.

Looks like YourTV filters out the HD channels when you select Hobart-TAS.

Don't know if you can print a whole week, but you could try http://iwatchthis.com.au/tvguide, which includes the HD channels in its Guide.

Bloody nowhere seems to list the HD guides for Canberra, just have to flick over and see if anything is on and then flick back. Can't even do it in the ads because we don't get HD ads, just the flyover HD test.
