Sky UK’s 50th HD Channel

With the launch of Living HD last week, Sky UK is set to reach its target of 50 HD channels by the year end. Living HD broadcasts from the ASTRA 2A satellite with a wide range of HD entertainment to Sky HD subscribers, including CSI, Grey’s Anatomy and Britain’s Next Top Model, and joins other recent HD channel launches, such as Good Food HD on ASTRA 2B. With Eden HD, ITV2 HD, ITV3 HD and ITV4 HD confirmed to launch in the coming months, the Sky HD channel portfolio will number 50 or more by Christmas.

Sky has also announced that nearly 430,000 viewers took up new subscriptions to the Sky HD service in April-June, to bring the total HD subscribers to over 3 million, or nearly a third of all Sky households.
