published on UK Free TV

Freesat today announced its viewers will be able to enjoy news channel NHK World in HD when it launches on the subscription-free satellite TV service in May 2011. NHK World will be the first news channel to broadcast in HD on Freesat.

Already available to Freesat customers in standard definition, the channel offers a truly international perspective on world news and affairs. A hugely trusted service, it has acted as a vital information line to the rest of the world during recent tragic events in Japan. Alongside updated news feeds, NHK World also offers a range of programme genres ranging from music, art and cooking to travel, business news and science.

Freesat SD customers can continue watching NHK World 24/7 on Channel 209, whilst HD viewers will have access to NHK World HD on the same channel number.

NottsUK Are you getting any Audio on the transmission? Video is very clear sharp and steady on my Technisat(s) in Non Freesat Mode.
Will check out my Humax DTR and Technomate receivers.

Les Nicol: On my Panasonic Freesat receiver there is no sound at the moment, although when I press the info button on the remote it shows multi-audio. There was no sound when the test card was showing, only usually when there is a test card there is also a test tone.

Brian - For anyone who can receive 19degrees East:-

Been announced the German regional (3rd) channels will start broadcasting in HD from 1st May 2012. on Astra 1 at 19 degrees east, this happens after analogue signals are switched off on 30th April 2012, just like DAS ERSTE and ZDF these channels will be free to air

Les Nicol: Thanks. This has certainly been on the cards for quite a while.

The use of the EU TV without Frontiers directive by the German PSBs is what I pointed out the the BBC when they were using Sky encryption and they then switched to FTA.
