BBC HD is an international high-definition television channel provided by BBC Worldwide and launched in September 2006.

In Australia, an Australian version of BBC HD was broadcast on the Foxtel HD+ service which was made available to subscribers on 2 June 2008 and was officially launched at the end of June 2008.[1] On 15 November 2009 it was replaced on Foxtel HD+ by UKTV HD.

During the first broadcast of BBC World News America, it was announced that BBC America HD would be launched in 2008. However, the HD version did not begin broadcasting until 20 July 2009.[2]

BBC HD started broadcasting to the Scandinavian countries in 2008.[3] A localised Latin American feed started in 2011.[4] In 2012 a Brazilian feed was created, though later that year, the Brazilian feed merged with that for the rest of the region, with separate audio and subtitle channels.
