BBC One to broadcast in HD
The UK’s Public service broadcaster, the BBC, is to launch a high Definition (HD) version of its main channel BBC One on DTT, cable and satellite later in the year.
The BBC has already been producing many of its programs in HD and the announcement will allow the service to be improved even further.
The BBC trust has also agreed an extension of daily hours on the existing BBC HD channel from an average of nine hours to twelve hours a day. These changes have been reflected in amended service licences for BBC One and the BBC HD channel.
