Freeview and Freesat to merge

The BBC, ITV and Channel 4 have announced plans to integrate Digital UK Ltd, the joint venture which facilitates the provision of Freeview TV services and Freesat (UK) Ltd, which offers access to the UK’s subscription-free satellite television service.

I wonder if C4 will bring back C4HD to Freesat now that they part own it?

I hope so. It's a right faff having to rescan my TV every time I want to watch the F1 highlights in HD. The channel exists on satellite, so it's just selfishness that it's not available through Freesat EPG.
