    Phone customer services, then phone them again! - if you get three different people and they all say no - then it isn't available in your area!

    But, if only one says it's available then your in.

    Believe me when I say emails don't work - I tried that too and got nowhere. They seem to delight in sending you reply emails which don't actually address the issue you raised.

    There's no other way to get a straight answer apart from calling the 'customer infuriation' line at least 3 or 4 times. Just remember to get the full name of the person you are speaking to (to use as ammo if it turns out they were giving you wrong information), and if they aren't helping demand to speak to a supervisor (who's name you should also get).

    Sad that it comes to that, but it's the only thing they respond to.

    Well I'm Bromley and when I phoned CS this week I was told 23rd January was the release date in my area. I was advised to call back then to arrange an install.

    At present only BBC HD is available on NTL. They are supposedly talking to Sky about getting their HD Channels but how close they are to reaching an agreement is anyones guess.

    I'm not sure about the others e.g. Nat Geo, Discovery.
