The BBC have just announced that from tomorrow, December 10th, they will be rolling out five new HD channels for UK viewers. The channels that will be available are BBC Three HD, BBC Four HD, BBC News HD, CBeebies HD and CBBC HD which will be available on Freeview HD, Freesat HD, YouView, Sky HD and Virgin Media.
Tony Hall, BBC Director-General, says: “I am delighted that we’re able to launch our new HD channels in time for Christmas, when families gather together to enjoy some of the best TV from the BBC. This year, people will be able to watch even more of our programmes in brilliant quality.”
With the latest figures stating that over 50% of homes in the UK are already HD enabled, as number which is expected to grow to 80% by 2016, the pre-Xmas roll out of more HD channels will come as great news for viewers.
