Three Days Until Wireless HDMI Legal In UK

Posted Tue Jul 14, 2009 at 12:10 PM PDT by Mike Attebery

Wait, wireless HDMI wasn’t legal?!

Never fear videophiles, the UK has your back. No longer will you have to avoid having your cop friend over for movie night, and you’ll be able to enjoy your home theater with the windows open without fear of someone seeing your illegal hookup. That’s right, for the few of you that have it, wireless HDMI will be legal in the UK this Friday.

Ofcom, the British regulatory committee of such things, should be applauded for their quick action in getting regulations ready for the new technology. After a relatively quick process, and with a few necessary exceptions regarding frequencies available for use, the UK is now ready for wireless HDMI. Of course, those that already have it and use it before Friday are still technically breaking regulations. Enjoy the rush, folks.
