True Blood episode 1 in HD


Not easy to find, but if you tune to channel 118, press Red and take the third option, the first episode of HBO's acclaimed True Blood is there in both SD and HD formats, no ads or DOGs and in proper widescreen. It says that it's only available for five days but I would imagine that's as a Virgin Central listing (available free to all Virgin customers) and that it will be available for longer for those with the full On Demand service. As of Saturday morning, it's not appearing in the TV Choice on Demand listings.
Enjoy...

Also can be found under the more free TV menu. ;-)

I watched the pilot episode and quite enjoyed it. Unfortunately it wasn't in Dolby Digital 5.1 (whereas BBC HD is). I'm amazed at both Virgin for making this so difficult to find and at FX themselves for launching their premiere new series 3 weeks BEFORE their channel goes high-def on the UK's 2nd biggest platform.

Thought I wouldn't get to see True Blood as we can't afford to pay for FX. Then only just received leaflet from Virgin today (24th July) telling us where to find it. However, it is no longer listed. Thought it was meant to disappear on Saturday 25th? Not happy at all.
