It is odd it has taken this long to take BBC2's highest rating programme and make it HD when so much other drivel has been HD for ages.

What TG was up to recently justifying a statement from a Romanian Government Official:

It seems TG made national news in Romania too:

all depends on the bitrate if its like the polar edition then its a hd … all depends on the bitrate if its like the polar edition then its a hd orgasmic event if its like jonathon ross then its great quality but nowt to write home about



I saw the Polar one on BBC HD, I liked it, although I would of presumed, wrongly maybe, the bitrate for Ross/TG would be the same, broadcast wise anyways, recording wise, if it's as good as say Planet Earth I'll be impressed but then I expect studio recordings to be better than outside anyway, at least on 1st generation outdoor HD like TG.

i thought it was common knowledge that it was back mid november :?

I think the whole point of Freesat (although I've been using V+/SkyHD/SkyHD on FTV for last 3 years) is to make up for the fact that analogue won't be switched off, nationally for another three years and therefore free bandwidth will freeup for next generation of freeview for more channels and HD and stronger signals which I imagine should induce portable TVs to come back.

I dunno, I have Freesat but at the moment it has 1 HD channel. In a couple of months I will have 4 HD channels through Freeview. Winter Hill is the one I believe they are switching on first and I can see that from where I live.

So yeah, with any luck, Freeview HD soon for me. Although the STB's that support DVB-T2 are supposedly not coming out till the new year, so I might struggle a bit until then lol.

Thats not really the point of freesat.
Its there to make it easier for people to access the fta channels that broadcast on satellite and also to provide access to digital tv to those who cant get freeview

Thank the lord!
