I cannot find the site I originally found, but it was a list of hardware
specs for various Freesat boxes, and they were all S2.

Looking around (digitalspy forums) it would appear that SD content is all
DVB-S, but when they start the HD transmissions that will be DVB-S2 (h.264
IIRC, but again I cannot find a good reference).

The old BBC site had more info, but now it is a flash marketing site :)
