Government declares support for HD on DTT

The Minister of Culture, Christine Albanel, wants the television services on the DTT platform to be available in high-definition (HD).
She stated: “In 2012, HD will become the standard for television broadcasting just as colour television is today.”
With this aim, Albanel will meet with broadcast regulators to ensure that sufficient frequencies are made available for HD services on the terrestrial platform.
Already, three HD services will be launched on the DTT platform in early 2008.
