Freeview HD is to start broadcasting in the UK on December 2nd with the transmitter that I use Winter Hill (Granada region) going first. As of yet there is no hardware to take advantage of the new DVB-T2 signal but Media Center should be in a position to receive it when the new hardware arrives (see this post for details). Next month I will be interviewing Microsoft about the new format so all we need now are some announcements TV card makers
