Sky+ HD is the UK's leading High Definition platform but there is still one elusive channel missing from the line up; ITV HD.

In the same way ITV kept their SD channels from joining the service in the early years of Sky Digital, today they are holding back their HD channel in the hope of furthering their own venture. Back then it was On Digital, today it is Freesat.

But there is a work around way for Sky+ HD viewers to manually add ITV HD to their set top boxes. You can do this legitimately and completely free of charge. To do so all you need is to have the lastest EPG software installed and follow the simple instructions in this step by step guide:

Further to the above you can also add hidden channels, test broadcasts and feeds to ANY Sky Digital sep top box which are not listed on the regular EPG programme guide. These include ITV1 regions such as STV Scotland, Ulster ITV, ITV Wales, Channel Islands ITV and all English ITV1 regions. RTE and TV3 Ireland are also available, although these are encrypted, you can still view the Irish teletext which is especially handy for people living in post DSO areas.

It’s good for having a little mess around with, again it’s completely free and legitimate, and every so often a little gem crop up like being able to watch new channels a few weeks before their official launch or extra cameras from the Big Brother House etc.

Here’s a link to the website that lists what’s available with full instructions of how to add the channels:

(again this post if for ALL Sky viewers not just those with HD like above)

Well worth getting as in my experience the SD feed that ITV use for SKY is shocking, especially for the football. It looks so nice and crisp in HD though.

I thought all HD broadcasts were in 720p, but the dreambox says different.

Some are broadcast in 1080 !

To be honest, as long as you've got a good aerial, you might be better off watching ITV1 on analouge - while you still can! The digital feed is far too pixilated

Sadly not. Virgin Media are light years behind Sky. I think Sky have got about 30 HD channels whereas Virgin have a mere 6.
