Freeview HD coming sooner than anticipated?

Freeview HD could be coming to London and other locales sooner than expected, thanks to the Beeb. It's trying to work out a deal with Ofcom to use alternate frequencies make sure OTA HD is available in all areas until analog TV shuts off for good. So, good news for the fam in Ulster, Tyne Tees, Anglia and more, potentially waiting until 2012 is not a favourable option.
