Started watching this channel when channel surfing. I like the occasional cooking show any my wife likes some of the shows but what surprised me was it's broadcast in HD DD 5.1. So I guess Mediaworks had enough transponder space to do that? So that makes two channels they have in HD 5.1 audio.

Well I'm certainly enjoying it, both content and video/audio quality.

It is nice they launched it in HD, it would be nice if Choice and Prime followed suit and moved to HD

Would be good. Though I don't think the mux they are on has the space.
And I don't think SKY will be happy to give up the rugby in HD ...

I watch The Gadget Show on it. Content is a little dated, I haven't managed to see the year in the end credits.
