EPG trials to be extended

Trials of the extended Freeview EPG will soon be rolled out to the rest of the UK. Problems identified in last year's testing in Wales have now been fixed: both four- and seven-day listings have worked well for the past few weeks. The trials will be extended to London, followed by all other regions of the UK. This will be welcome news for Freeview PVR owners who have been waiting with frustration with the limited functionality of their boxes.
