HD launches in Spain

astraSES ASTRA announced yesterday the launch of Spains first HD channel. The new HD channel is called Canal+ HD and is part of Sogecables digital pay-TV package Digital+. The program line-up of Canal+ HD includes premium movies and sports events such as the 2008 European Soccer Championship.

The fact that Spains first HD channel broadcasts via ASTRA proves that our satellites are the technology of choice for high definition, says Luis Sahun, Managing Director ASTRA Marketing Ibérica. We are proud that Sogecable, being a pioneer in the Spanish HDTV market, has chosen ASTRA to broadcast Canal+ HD.

After the launch of Canal+ HD, SES ASTRA will begin to transmit 29 HD channels. This will amount to Europes most extensive choice of HD channels from leading broadcasters who include BSkyB, BBC, Discovery, National Geographic, CANAL+, M6, TF1 and Premiere. By end of 2010, SES ASTRA plans to offer 100 HD channels.
