RT HD arrives on Freeview
RT HD launched on Freeview at lunchtime, just over two years after it first launched on satellite. For non-HD viewers, the standard definition version of RT continues on channel 135 as normal. In addition to world news and current affairs, the channel also contains a UK opt-out during the evening with hourly news bulletins tailored to UK audiences.
It's the first new HD channel on Freeview since the launch of two QVC HD channels last spring.
Coinciding with the change, Movies4Men+1 has been removed from Freeview channel 50, except for viewers in Manchester who will need to retune. The main Movies4Men channel continues on channel 48.
How to receive RT HD on Freeview
RT HD is on channel 113 and is also available to viewers with YouView boxes.
The service belongs to a group of channels covering just over 70% of the UK population. Viewers who already can receive BBC Four HD on channel 106 will be able to get the new RT HD channel. In some instances a retune may be required.
