Five HD on DTT
June 12, 2009
Ofcom announced that it has made a provisional decision to reserve capacity in principal to the broadcaster, to provide new HD services on DTT from 2010. Ofcom's decision to award a HD licence to Five is subject to it resolving certain key criteria related to its application. These must be resolved before the year end.
This decision should mean that Five will join the other public service broadcasters, the BBC, the channel 3 licensees (ITV, stv and UTV), and Channel 4 and S4C, in launching four HD services on DTT in total.
