New Sky HD channel begins

October 26th, 2006 · No Comments

Sky’s newest high definition TV channel, The History Channel HD, begins broadcasting today. Transmitting from 8am until 2am daily, on Sky Guide channel 545, it promises to offer a different schedule to its standard definition sibling. Programmes include the UK premieres of Engineering an Empire, Warrior Empire: The Mughals, and The Sahara, as well as HD versions of The Plague, The Crusades: Crescent and The Cross, and Beyond the Da Vinci Code.
The American version of the channel will not begin broadcasting until 2007.
Says Richard Melman, UK Channel Director: “We’re delighted and proud to launch The History Channel HD in the UK. The stunning quality of the pictures adds a new dimension to our programmes. The channel is entirely scheduled with programmes originated in high definition. From the grains of sand that make up the Sahara to the gold leaf of the ancient manuscripts. This is the future of History.”
