ITV HD is a British free-to-air high-definition television channel operated by
ITV plc, the company which is contracted to provide 11 ITVservices in England and Wales. ITV HD is available to view in the United Kingdom exclusively available to Freesatvia the red button whilst watching ITV1.
The channel originally existed on a trial basis from June until November 2006, primarily to show the World Cup games to which
ITVhad the rights.
The channel was available to subscribers of the Telewest "TV Drive" cable service, and was also broadcast as a low-power digital terrestrial (
DVB-T) channel from London's Crystal Palace Transmitteras part of a terrestrial HDTV trial involving 450 homes. ITV HD did not broadcast on Satellite TV, unlike BBC HD. It was available on Telewest channel 118 and Freeview channel 503 in homes which were involved in the HD trial.
In addition to the World Cup games, ITV HD showed classic films remastered in HD (such as "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "The Big Sleep"), documentaries (such as [http://www.pbs.org/kqed/oceanadventures/ "Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Adventures"] ) and dramas such as "Poirot".
The original ITV HD stopped broadcasting on the 30 November 2006.

ITV HD using other receivers
In order to limit reception to the UK as far as possible, the satellite broadcast uses a non standard
DVBstream.

However, the broadcast can legitimately be watched on some free-to-airreceivers in the UK.
ITV HD's first HD drama broadcast of "Harley Street" reportedly suffered technical problems including picture & sound quality and failing to revert to the normal SD broadcast after the programme had finished. Also, several Digital Spy forum members reported that they could not access HD content via the red button due to the ITV HD service "only being available through the London region".
