Please tell me how I can watch this birdsong. It's got to be more entertaining that what passes for local news.
The "money" solution is to upgrade all BBC regional teams to use HD and pay for sufficient HD capacity on satellite feeds to distribute the content.
What I am saying is that it should be possible to embed the existing SD stream into the channel using the interactive services features, i.e. send an instruction to the box so that the BBC One HD channel displays a feed of the viewer's local BBC One SD stream, with a list of regions that that the user can scroll through to view a different stream. At the end of the local news, the channel reverts back to regular BBC One HD content. Remember BBC Parliament on Freeview being a quarter-screen video stream with interactive/digital-text content in the rest of the picture? I mean something like that.
Maybe that would require an SD to HD converter at each transmitter.
Or maybe a certain percentage has to be in HD
