Actually several versions of several channels to allow for regional
variations, and widescreen delivery for digital channels.  BBC1 is heading
towards 28 different versions, each of which may have a unique programme
schedule (if transmission parameters such as widescreen are taken into
account).  It is not uncommon in practice for viewers to be able to receive
more than one version of the same channel.
