BBC details Freeview HD rollout schedule - 17-November-2009, 13:56

The BBC has made available a rollout timetable for Freeview HD that suggests some 50 per cent of the UK population will receive HD coverage in time for the 2010 football World Cup.

Freeview HD will begin broadcasting on December 2nd, but accelerated roll-out plans look set to deliver the service to many other regions in the first half of 2010. However, despite the first broadcasts beginning in just a matter of weeks, Freeview HD receivers aren't expected to appear at retail until early 2010. In order to receive Freeview HD transmissions, viewers will require TVs or set-top-boxes equipped with a new DVB-T2 tuner.

The service is expected to launch with high-definition channels available from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, whilst S4C HD will be broadcast in Wales. Five, meanwhile, plans to introduce its first HD channel late next year.

In the coming months, consumers will be able to access a Freeview HD coverage checker on the Freeview website. In the meantime, the below table of BBC-provided data should highlight roughly when Freeview HD will be available in your region.
