X-Files HD bonanza

If you're impatient for the new X-Files 'event' on Channel Five next month you can get yourself all Scully n Muldered up in HD beforehand. 
H2 HD is currently showing season 2 around midnight. It's upscaled but an improvement on the old DVDs I have. Even better are the 5* repeats showing around the same time, which are a selection of "essential" episodes and the very best from across all 9 seasons. If you want to watch in HD search for X Files in the On Demand listings. Currently up is the disturbing "Home" from season four. Brrrrr

Amazon Prime has seasons 1-9 for free, and a quick play and pause of the Pilot episode says that it is in HD, which suggests the others may be too.

In the US all nine seasons had been remastered for HD and are in widescreen too. These are what are being shown on Demand 5 on the Virgin TiVo and, I think H2 too.
I'm not a huge X-Fan so the "Essentials" episodes on 5* are enough for me.
