Premiere increases HD capacity

By Robert Briel | April 1, 2009 | 09:09 UK

SES-Astra has announced that the German pay-TV channel Premiere has contracted one and a half additional transponders on the 19.2 degrees East orbital position. With the additional bandwidth, Premiere plans to extend its HD offer.

Premiere launched its HD services on Astra in 2005 and currently broadcasts the HD channels Premiere HD and Discovery HD.
This new capacity agreement will give a strong boost to the development of HD in Germany while allowing us to significantly enlarge the HD offering in that country, said Alexander Oudendijk, CCO of SES Astra, in a statement.

As one of the pioneers of pay-TV and HD television, Premiere continues to support and lead this important development. The increasing demand for HD receivers in Germany shows that more and more viewers are attracted by this fascinating new way to watch TV.

According to recent market research studies conducted on behalf of the satellite operator, 219,000 HDTV receivers were sold in Germany in 2008, with 80% of these being satellite receivers. In total, 530,000 HDTV receivers have been sold since the introduction of HD. SES Astra currently broadcasts nearly 70 HD channels on its satellite fleet.
