In Uncategorized On

The BBC has announced it plans to launch five new high definition channels by early 2014.

The five channels due for the HD treatment are BBC News, BBC Three, BBC Four, CBeebies and CBBC. All five will be available via Freeview, satellite and cable services.

This announcement follows Ofcom’s declaration that it is possible to launch ten new HD channels using freed up airwaves from the analogue switch off.

BBC’s director general, Tony Hall, said: “BBC One HD and BBC Two HD have already proved to be highly valued by our audiences and I’m delighted that we’re able to follow this with the launch of five new subscription-free BBC HD channels by early 2014.

“These new channels will allow us to showcase more of our programming at its very best.”
