Are you counting HVF as HLS streams?  If I take b0b071wx as a recent 
example, for version original I can only see DVF and HVF modes and 

If we are stuck with DVF and HVF we are also stuck with the BBC's absurd 
notion that increasing the frame rate [by duplicating frames?] to 50fps 
more than compensates for reducing the resolution to keep the bandwidth 
the same.

Best wishes
