But the news that only half of the country will be covered by the Freeview HD service will still be a blow to some football fans hoping to see razor sharp pics of the action in South Africa.

 

Freeview HD coverage will rise to 60% by the end of 2010 and 98.5% by the end of the digital switchover in 2012.
