High definition television in the UK is on its way.
The BBC will be launching a HD satellite/cable trial from mid 2006.
If you've just got Freeview but you have an HD-ready television and live in London, then, you lucky sod, you can apply to take part in a technical trial which the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and five are going to conduct to see how HD works with Freeview, with a set top box that they'll supply. The trial will include all of the BBC and ITV's live World Cup matches.
They only want a few hundred volunteers so get your blow in quick! (Sadly my TV isn't HD-ready or I'd be applying like a shot like I did for the BBC iMP trial.)
