A new HD version of BBC Two HD will launch next month, replacing the current BBC HD channel which shows selected content from BBC Two, Three and Four.
The channel will be a simulcast network version of the BBC Two schedule and will go live at 6am on Tuesday 26 March.
Announcing the launch date, Janice Hadlow, Controller of BBC Two, said: “BBC One HD has already proved to be highly valued by our audiences and I’m delighted that we’re able to follow this with the launch of BBC Two in HD.
“The launch of BBC Two HD will allow us to showcase more of our programmes at their very best – helping to highlight our commitment to high quality, engaging and ambitious programmes on BBC Two.”
BBC Two HD will be available on Sky HD (169), Freeview HD/YouView (102), Virgin Media (187), Freesat HD (109) and BT Vision (852).
