ITV1 HD and STV HD are not currently available on the EPG for Scotland due to ongoing negotiations between the broadcasters. You can, however, add both channels to your lineup using the Add Channels procedure in the Sky menu.
On the Sky remote, press Services>Options>Add Channels>Select. Enter the values 10936, V, 22000, 5/6. Press yellow to 'find channels'. On the resulting page highlight the first 'ITV 1 HD' & '3855' and press 'yellow' on each to store. Press 'Select' when complete.
These two channels will then be in Other Channels for you to view. They are not in the EPG. They cannot be recorded. Label 3855 is STV HD.
You should already have ITV2 HD, and ITV 3 HD & 4 HD are due to launch tomorrow ( 15th November 2010 ) on the EPG. Also in Scotland, I believe.
Don't hold your breath for native HD content on any of these channels. Most of the programming is only upscaled SD, not full HD.

Use 10936, V, 22.0, 5/6 . Press yellow to find channels. The channel scan will then show 3 results - ITV HD, ITV HD, and 3855. 3855 is actually STV HD. Press yellow to store it, then press Select. You'll find it in 'Other Channels'. It is not on the EPG.

You cannot get ITVHD in Scotland, or for that matter Northern Ireland, because ITV and Sky have entered into a contract which specifically excludes transmission to those parts of the United Kingdom only allowing customers in England and Wales these services. Its called discrimination!!
I suggest those Sky customers living in Scotland and Northern Ireland bombard Sky Customer Services with complaints and maybe then they will act to end the discrimination.

I might be wrong here but I think this is soley down to ITV as they are the broadcaster and then decide what gets shown and where so bombading Sky is the worng way to go about it, I would suggest that ITV should be the first port of call.

This is basically a very long-running dispute between STV and ITV plc. Until it's resolved, Sky will be unable to bring STV HD onto the EPG. Nor is STV HD on Freesat, for the same reason. Until STV and ITV have sorted out their little tiff, those of us in Scotland will just have to continue to add ITV HD manually, and view from Other Channels. No big deal really, nothing worth recording anyway. Ghastly channel.

Sorry for the delay in getting a response to you.
We are not aware of any plans in changing the channel line up for BBC, ITV, CH4 and CH5 on our systems. If any changes are made, then this will be put up on our website for customers to see.
