Footnotes to Entertainment and Documentaries table

  • Irish - Programmes in Irish
  • Ad340s - Secondary (UK HD) channels - see Channel number ranges.
  • AdPub - On non-residential boxes, a version with adverts targeted at pub goers, identifiable by a pint glass on-screen, replaces the residential version.
  • SDHD - The HD version of BBC Two is the England Scotland variant and the SD version is the Northern Ireland variant - the HD swap does not therefore take place.
