HD display owners expect HD on the DTT platform
The recent London trial of HD on the DTT platform has been an overwhelming success. The trial was made available to a closed sample group of 450 viewers, 98% of which now feel it is important to have HD services on the Freeview platform in the future; 86% expect these services within three years and 90% believe that UK broadcasters the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Five should be at the forefront of HD developments.
At the present time no spectrum is said to be available for HD or DVB-H on the terrestrial broadcasting channels until analogue switch-off takes place.
