Freeview HD trial in London

There's another trial of high definition services on the Freeview platform underway in London. Details on Home Cinema Choice. The OFCOM plan is that Mux B on the bandwidth-lite terrestrial digital service will ultimately carry four HD channels from the BBC, ITV, C4 and one other, although the bit rates for Freeview HD will be lower than those used on other platforms.

Last time the trial was conducted (2006), Telewest customers got both BBCHD & ITVHD trial channels. I suppose it's too much to hope VM customers will get a similar bonus.

Perhaps these are the infamous 3-4 channels Berkett mentioned previously??
