The High Definition version of &TV has begun testing on Sky Digital.
As revealed exclusively on BizAsia last week, &TV HD will be the first free-to-air Asian HD channel to launch on the digital TV platform. &TV HD will simulcast programmes as its current standard version (SD). &TV launched in the UK last month and has regularly attracted a weekly reach of 450,000 viewers.
&TV HD is expected to go live in the first week of June to coincide with the launch of the channel’s huge reality show ‘The Voice’.
&TV HD will join Star Plus HD as the only other Asian HD channel in the UK. However, Star Plus HD is only available as part of a Sky subscription.
