In the UK, HDTV programming options are pretty limited. Essentially the only choice right now is Sky HD. A new deal from BBC and ITV aims to change that, though, by offering a new service with up to 200 channels that requires no monthly fee.

It's going to be similar to a service called Freeview, which is hyped as a free programming service but isn't very efficient because the signals aren't that strong. "Freesat will build on the success of Freeview by offering viewers a simple and cost effective way of upgrading to digital TV. By offering HD capability we will future proof Freesat if, as expected, high definition television continues to capture the imagination of UK viewers", said ITV exec Michael Grade.
