Save Freeview HD

If you have seen high definition (HD) TV you will know how impressive it is. I recently went to see the first episode of the BBC TV series Torchwood projected onto a local cinema screen and I was very impressed; even at full cinema size the picture quality looks good. However there are plans afoot to sell off the spectrum that would be used to broadcast HD over Freeview. This would mean that the only way to get high definition TV would be to pay Richard Branson or Rupert Murdoch (for Sky or Virgin Cable). The BBC has committed itself to spending your licence fee on producing all its programs in high definition. If you care about being able to see these programs in HD without paying extra for the privilege sign the petition and visit Save Freeview HD.
