Two new series start on Sky1 that will interest the masses, even if they're not available to us in HD:
Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica starts on Tuesday, Febuary 3rd with a double episode, and the sixth and final season of Lost begins on Friday, February 5th, again with a double episode. Both are 9pm, although the latter is preceded by a "the story so far" special at 8pm.
And if you didn't know, 24 is back tonight (Sunday) at 9pm.
Incidentally, Virgin's last quarter results and full 2009 results are due early in February and these announcements are often accompanied by the some new channels. Mind you, nothing happened last quarter, but maybe something on the HD front this time? ITV1 HD would be great. And Sky1 HD would be fabulous, albeit extremely unlikely.
