New SKY Perfect DVB-S2 satellite service for Japan

In October 2008 “SKY PerfecTV/HD” started broadcasting 15 High-Definition channels  using DVB-S2 and plans to expand to more than 70 channels in October 2009 and eventually to over 100.
SKY PerfecTV! HD utilizes MPEG-4, H.264 AVC compression as well as DVB-S2 transmission technology, which allows the transmission of even greater numbers of programs in a high-definition format.
Set-top boxes for this service allow subscribers to view both standard and high-definition content, and will also provide many other convenient functions.
