channel duplicates differences and how is this organized

In the Bay Area channels 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 are tv networks duplicated as 702, 703, 704, 705, 706. Is there a difference? Is one HD and one not? Also, what is the system here. Does each transition from one hundred to the next hundred represent something? Is there a diagram and full explanation of the system on a web page? I am a new customer to xfinity tv and I have a 4k tv. thx

Hi why123456, the information that (andyross) shared is correct. The 700 channels are the HD version of what you see on 2,3,4,5 etc. You can get a diagram and more information on the system by clicking on this link

Genarally, I would assume the 700's are HD, and the others are SD. Just tune into one and see what it looks like, although I think X1 does have an auto-tune-to-HD feature that would retune to an HD version if you try to go to an SD channel.
