Film4 HD allows you to view the complete Film4 line-up, and enjoy a high definition experience. The channel is a simulcast of the Film4 channel with many films produced and transmitted in the HD format.
You can see which programmes are in HD format on our TV Listings page.
High definition (HD or HDTV) is a newer standard of digital television broadcasting that offers sharper, more detailed pictures and surround sound.
High definition (HD) requires an entirely separate broadcast stream from current standard definition (SD) broadcasting.
Film4 HD will be transmitted using the 1080i HD format, the standard for HD transmission in the UK.
Film4 HD will show a proportion of its acquired programmes with 5.1 surround sound. To hear this, you usually need a separate surround sound system and speakers, often known as a home cinema system.
Sky viewers will need to have a Sky HD box and viewing card, be a subscriber to Sky’s HD pack.
Virgin Media customers will need an HD-compatible box (e.g. a V HD or TiVO box) and a subscription to the correct package – currently M+.
All viewers will need an HD-ready TV too, connected to their box.
Film4 HD is a direct simulcast of the core Film4 schedule. Many of the programmes will have been made in native HD format, and your on-screen EPG and the C4.com TV Listings will indicate which these are. The remaining non-HD programmes will be up-converted from the SD source material.

Not all, but some will have 5.1 surround sound and the on-screen guide will indicate which these are.
Original HDTV programming is made in an aspect ratio of 16x9 (1.78), which fits the dimensions of widescreen TV’s. However, many theatrically released films are made in an aspect ratio of either 1.85 or 2.35. Therefore, when viewing these films on HDTV (if presented in their original theatrical aspect ratio) - you will see black bars on your 16x9 screen. Up-converted 4x3 programmes will also appear with black bars on the left and right.
