Freeview HD in London by December 09, more in 2010

BBC and Arqiva have reached an agreement to deliver Freeview HD to the London area during December 2009, it has been announced.

Originally Freeview HD was set to launch in the Granada region and now this has been expanded to include London, too. The agreement between the BBC and Arqiva will also see 5 more transmitters being enabled for Freeview HD in the early stages of 2010. These include:-

  • Glasgow
  • Newcastle
  • Birmingham
  • Leeds/Bradford

Disappointingly, the official Freeview website also declares that despite Freeview HD being available in December 09, there will not be any Freeview HD boxes or Freeview HD TVs available to buy until early 2010.
