Following the news that Eurosport HD is headed to the cable TV provider, Virgin Media has announced its customers will be able to watch Discovery HD "soon".

Due to launch in the spring, Discovery HD on Virgin TV will broadcast all day, every day and offer content from Discovery’s collection of more than 1500 hours of HD programming.

Discovery HD will offer shows about popular science, history, engineering, culture and natural history including Extreme Engineering, Mythbusters, NASA’s Greatest Missions and Bear Grylls: Born Survivor.
It looks like Virgin Media is to give its HD offerings a bit of a boost in 2010 - it says it "plans to reveal more details about further launches in the coming months".
