TV viewers in London that enjoy Freeview could get HD stations next year if things go well. Some planned changes to TV viewing spectrum could lead to enough bandwidth for the HD stations. The BBC has applied to Ofcom for permission to use other frequencies.

BBC wants to use the program making and special events frequencies for HD broadcasts until the national switch off happenes in 2012.
If the request is approved the 2010 World Cup would be available in HD to millions of viewers for free, assuming they buy new receivers. The channels will use the multiplex B data stream owned by BBC.
