Live football in HD on Virgin Media

Tucked away towards the end of Danielle Nagler's latest blog post is the news that the BBC's weekend coverage of Championship* football next season will be broadcast in HD, starting August 8th. Hurrah! Now can we please have ITV HD before the Champions League and FA Cup kick off?

*Division Two really

Live premier league in HD is coming to VM+. ESPN and VM have agreed to broadcast ESPN in HD for free to XL customers. This is from news sites and not forums! It is due to start on 2nd August. So this is yet another HD channel. Looks like things are moving fast.
