Sirens, sergeants’ uniforms and flashing blue lights are coming to a living room near you, in high definition and subscription free, as The Bill comes to ITV HD exclusively on Freesat from 1st July.

HD offers a picture that is five times the quality of normal digital TV, perfect for catching every detail of the officers’ fast paced action on the beat.

The first episode shown in HD will be: “Conviction Cover Up,” part of a brand new six-part story from the BAFTA award winning police drama, now available in HD for free on Freesat.

Freesat has announced that, from Wednesday 1st July, The Bill will be showing in high definition exclusively on the Freesat satellite platform.

The first episode -- "Conviction Cover-Up" -- starts a six-part series.

It follows a line of popular ITV dramas to get the HD treatment including Lewis and Law & Order UK.

It's a shame that these dramas are currently only (easily) available to Freesat users. Hopefully the advent of Freeview HD (or perhaps some better licensing agreements instead).

The Bill has launched an official YouTube site.

Videos will include previews of upcoming episodes, guest stars and coverage of new cast members at work.

The new site will feature updates from PC Reg Hollis’ podcast Regflections. Other characters will also soon make podcasts for the site at www.youtube.com/thebill.

It comes in time for a planned television-online tie-in with three special interactive episodes in November.

Viewers will be able to get involved in the story with clues, unseen CCTV and mobile phone footage at the YouTube site and www.itv.com/thebill.

Spokeswoman Sarah-Jane King said: "Increasing the show’s online presence, the site features exclusive sneak previews of upcoming episodes and guest stars, and viewers can log on to see the new regular characters at work on their first days at Sun Hill."

ITV police drama The Bill is to turn viewers into detectives for a series of interactive episodes.

During the three-part special entitled 'Target', the Sun Hill team will undertake one of their biggest investigations when a high-profile politician and a respected religious leader are shot dead at a 'Rock Against Racism' concert.

With the race on to catch the killer, Superintendent John Heaton (Daniel Flynn) is rocked to the core when he realises that he could have been one of the intended targets.

As the plot progresses, viewers will be able to locate clues scattered around the internet as well as view unseen CCTV footage on a dedicated YouTube channel. The interactive incident room will be launched after the first episode has aired.

Of the venture, Executive Producer Johnathan Young said: "We are driving home the interactive element to this fantastic three-parter and The Bill is always looking at new ways of using new media to promote various storylines.
