Freeview to get one more HD channel
OFCOM has announced that Freeview is to get a fifth HD channel and has invited the UK's commercial free-to-air channels - ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 - to bid. No BBC for this one as it already has BBC HD and BBC One HD on the platform. Freeview also has ITV1 HD and 4HD, so I would imagine the new slot will go to ITV2 HD, Five HD or maybe E4 HD.
