The BBC has reconfirmed its dedication to HD content during a keynote speech at the HD Masters Conference in London.

Following on from the announcement in April the iPlayer would be getting HD content, BBC HD boss Danielle Nagler told the conference that more was on its way.

"In the coming months Dragon's Den, Countryfile, the Culture Show, Shooting Stars, The Restaurant, Waterloo Road, Ashes to Ashes, Hole in the Wall, and Flog it! are already committed to making the move," she said.

"I am confident that this year we will increase the total number of hours of content that the BBC is making in HD by over 300, and I do not intend that we should stop there".

Nagler went on to add that users would be able to access all of this content on both Freesat Freeview and iPlayer, as well as Sky and Virgin, in a continued attempt to make HD accessible to all.
