Beeb offers High-def World Cup

The BBC has confirmed it will screen Germany '06 in HDTV (High-def television). HDTV is only available to viewers who have HD-enabled television sets (most decent new sets are High-def ready), set-top boxes and the relevant satellite/cable services. The first live HDTV programme to be broadcast by the Beeb will be Germany v Costa Rica on 9 June, the tournament's opening match. The question is, exactly how much stunning detail do you want to see in Wayne Rooney's big, angry Shrek-face?
