ITV have launched an HD service for the Western part of the Yorkshire region. Yorkshire East sub region is still SD only for local news. Most of Virgins HD channels are provided to its master headend near London via a uncompressed wired feed, so I would assume that until this is available the situation on Virgin will not change.
Cable customer since 1993. Services: FH TV, Sky Sports & Movies (2xV+), Talk Unlim Telco, VIVID 100, Virgin PAYG Mobile
