As I understand it, Digital Terestrial TV / Hi Def is only available in the major cities

I'm in New Plymouth, my local transmitter is Mount Taranaki and  does not carry DT  TV

Anyone have any idea when  its likely to happen?

There are no definate plans at this stage.

Freeview|HD currently transmits to 75% of the population, there are already plans to expand this to 87% of the population (which includes New Plymouth) but this is dependant on additional government funding.

I would put money on it happening - probably within the next 2-3 years.

The 87% rollout will definately occur before the analogue switchoff and that is planned to occur at any stage from 2012 onwards with an announcement of the date expected in 2012.
