Flippikat: Wonder if there's anywhere in the remaining 13% of coverage that would be worth extending Freeview HD to?
Now that I'm back home and using a real computer, I can expand on my previous message.
I live in Whakatane and saw the old (now archived) documents on the MED website showing the proposed coverage expansion. One of the listed sites was Whakatane. The Going Digital site doesn't mention Whakatane so I emailed Going Digital and asked about the discrepancy.
The response I got back stated that the current information on Going Digital is not final and that firmer plans should be available by the end of next week, explaining "exactly what coverage we will be rolling out to consumers".
Now, the bit relevant to your actual statement: The message I received continued on to say that there may be a third stage of expansion, but discussions are still underway. When you consider existing analogue coverage you can see that a lot of the country is being missed by 87%.
