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.
