When is this coming? Seems excessively long in the development?

I'm told BBC Two Scotland cannot be broadcast on HD for entirely
financial - not technical - reasons.

It's both. Financial means the technology cannot be purchased.

Que? If the techology exists it cannot be for technical reasons. If
the technology is too expensive that is a financial reason. We know
the technology exists ergo the barrier is financial.

In many industries the expression "for technical reasons" is a
euphamism for "We don't wish to elucidate further".
