steve: No, not before the end of 2017 (IIRC).

The plan was drawn up to offer these services from 30 transmitters. This will incentivise purchase of equipment with Freeview HD (DVB-T2) tuners in-built. In four or five years time things may change and the services currently with limited coverage (BBC News HD etc) may become more widely available.
