Sky Deutschland Tries Ultra HDTV

The recording was made for development purposes and no broadcast is planned for Sky Deutschland’s platform of SDTV and HDTV channels on the ASTRA 19.2°E satellites. However, ASTRA operator SES predicts that commercial Ultra HDTV services may start in as little as two or three years, and Ultra HDTV sets are already being sold as the ultimate way to watch current HD broadcasts.

“The test recording on Saturday is only the first of many more steps,” Sky Deutschland said, “but at this early stage, the first experiences are already amazing. Ultra HD is incredibly exciting for us and even more exciting for our customers.”
