Southern Cross Launching One HD July 2

Gizmodians living outside the major metropolitan areas who have been hanging out for access to the 24 hour HD sports channel, One HD, your time is almost here.

TV Tonight is reporting that Southern Cross 10 has today announced that they'll be flicking the switch on July 2 at 7pm for the new One HD channel in regional NSW, Queensland, ACT and Victoria. They've also stated that Tasmanian viewers will get the channel at the same time. It will be broadcast on channel 50 (weird) and will be subject to digital coverage.

TV Tonight also has a series of regional coverage maps for each of the eastern states (and territories) except Tasmania, so if you're wondering if you'll get the new channel, make sure you check out the TV Tonight post.
