    Last Sunday the 13th of Jan. I was viewing Yorks tv from Emley Moor on Freeview
    Just as the prog. Kingdom was about to start at 2100hrs. the announcer stated it could be viewed in HD if you have it
    I was not aware it was available untill spring at least on Freesat can anyone put light on this.

    I also sent a email to itv as regards the above at the same time as posting my query
    I have received a responce that there are no plans for itv to transmit HD in the near future
    This must be a case of lack of comunication within itv

    There certainly must be - usual situation of one hand not knowing what the other one's doing.

    ITV will begin broadcasting in HD via the new freesat service due to go live in March 08.

    Initially, they will deliver about 2-3 hours of HD programming a day but I think this will increase through time.

    Personally, I am hoping they are up and running in time for the new F1 season which has been shown in HD on Mainland Europe for a couple of years now.

    Cheers

    kilimax: F1 in HD would be great, but I bet Bernie will be rubbing his hands :D

    I remember seeing Sagem's F1 demo sequence on their HD TVs a few years ago and the detail was amazing.

    I just hope the new ITV HD has a better schedule than the old ITV HD.

    There's only so many times you can watch the story of Charlie's Angels before your eyes start bleeding.
