Finland’s largest cable TV operator DNA has revealed plans to bring HDTV to 1.5 million Finnish homes by 2011. This amounts to 60% of TV households.
Services will start becoming available in the largest Finnish cities by the end of the year.
Vice president, Consumer Business at DNA, Pekka Väisänen noted survey findings that indicated that a majority of the Finnish population, 69%, wanted to watch movies in high definition and in the age group 15 to 19, the number was even higher: 89%. “There’s no doubt that HDTV is the future,” he concluded.
