Freeview iPlayer, HD plans revealed

The roll-out of high definition services on Freeview has been brought forward, according to reports. It's estimated that 40% of households will be able to access Freeview HD in time for the football World Cup next June. Plans to launch the BBC's iPlayer on Freeview are also ahead of schedule, with expectations that iPlayer-enabled Freeview boxes will be available later this year.
