Terrestrial HD channels, online????

Could I get the terrestrial HD channels delivered by BT via infinity to my current youview box or do I need the old style BT Vision+ box?
The reason I ask is that my terrestrial TV signal has been suffering interference from a new 4G mobile network and the adapter to stop this blocks all the HD channels.

Because the BT Vision+ box didn't come with a HD tuner the Terestrial HD channels were provided over Infinity multicast.
That's what it says here.

You are correct, the Freeview/DTT channeld are delivered over the broadband for the BT Vision Box. So in theory, BT could do the same for the Youvew Box.
I suppose it depends if the computer says yes.

So my simple question is: If I buy a BTVision+ box can I get BBC1&2HD, ITVHD and C4HD delivered via my Infinity2 ?

I don't know if you can still get the old style box and that service

If you want to view Sky Sports 5 then BT will have to supply a Vision box.

Re: Terrestrial HD channels, online????

If you currently have a BT TV subscription on a BT Youview box then I don't think the BT TV on BT Vision specific services would be available to you even if you plugged in a BT Vision box instead. I get the impression the account is set up for either BT Vision or BT Youview. Someone might know better though.

On a BT TV on BT Vision set up the 'PSB HD' entitlement is what is required. A BT TV order confirmation on this platform can include 'Free-to-air HD channels' listed as an add-on and this relates to the 'PSB HD' entitlement.

Re: Terrestrial HD channels, online????

Thanks for all your answers. I'll not bother to buy the BTVision+ box if the service is no longer supported. 😕
I hope that one day, all our TV channels will be IPTV in the near future.
