A slew of Asian TV channels, which currently broadcast free on Sky Digital will be carried on the new digital TV platform, Real Digital TV.

Similar to Sky Digital, Real Digital TV will be a satellite DTH platform with up to 400 channels. At launch, Real Digital TV will carry most of the free-to-air channels on the Sky Digital platform including Imagine Dil Se, Sunrise TV, B4U Music and ARY News. Other broadcasters are yet to confirm their presence on the platform. However, it is very likely most free-to-air channels on Sky Digital will be carried on Real Digital TV.

The first batch of Real Digital TV Fortec Star FSRDHD set top boxes go on sale from next week. Full subscription rates are set to be announced in the coming days.
