TNT FreeSat to gain HD channels
TNTSat free-to-view is to include four HD channels from February 2009 reports Broadband TV News. The new channels are TF1 HD, M6 HD, Arte HD and France 2 HD.
TNTSat is a satellite delivery service made available from the Canal+ Group and offering a DTH alternative to receive the free-to-view channels already available on the French DTT platform.
To receive the existing service it has been necessary to use a Sagem/Viaccess satellite receiver/decoder, only a few of which are capable of decoding the new HD service. The receiver is currently used in 50,000 homes and is expected to rise to 100,000 by the end of the year.
