    6 Ways to Get your HD Fix!

    The UK is in the early stages of the high definition timeline when it comes to programming and technology. In Japan and the US high definition content has been around for the past 8 years with people enjoying all the same programming that we watch in quality that is four times greater than our normal TV sets and with 5.1 surround sound.

    Interesting article, didn't know our foreign friends have had the pleasure of HD that long ago though! You don't happen to know if NTL is thinking about introducing a HD service do you? Now I finally got around to getting necessary cables and bits and bobs for my new NTL digital service, I want moooooore Although, I am still in denial that things can get much better than they look as they are sitting at such a distance from the TV. HD-content on the PC is always nice to watch though, downloaded a few trailers and put them in the window at work displaying content from various games and movies and certainly attracts people, albeit with a measly 17" CTX LCD :/

    Given that NTL now owns Telewest (doesn't it?) and that Telewest is the one firm that is introducing an HD service by cable, I think the answer is a not very guarded, "Yes".

    One of my readers sent me an email with two bits of good information on the NTL HD plans.

    you know, I am very tempted to get Sky HD however the £300up front price tag is just far too steep.

    When it comes down to a reasonable price (post world cup most likely) I will look again.

    Totally agree, give it 6 months for the price to come down. Just look at what happened to Sky+
