Next Generation TV roll out update

MediaBoy's posted a list of the headends and areas still to be upgraded to Virgin's NGTV platform. Details here: NGTV News
18 headends covering some 58 regions. I think MB's updating the list regularly but it's not got a date on it so I'm not 100% sure. (Once areas are upgraded they get the additional HD channels from Discovery, Syfy, E4 and Eurosport, with the Nagra 3 encryption following as the new Smart Cards are distributed. The rollout should be completed by June.)
And a quick reminder that Virgin's Q1 2010 results are due next Wednesday, so there may be some service additions announced to coincide. Don't y'all get too excited now...
