CeBIT – HANOVER. Eurosport and Panasonic will jointly promote HD by placing large HD screens in over 1,000 retail outlets across Europe. From April Panasonic will install the full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) screens and Eurosport will provide selected sports clips in HD quality.
The joint promotion should promote interest in HD as well as in the planned Eurosport HD service, which could launch later this year. So far the broadcaster has not yet unveiled a concrete timetable nor a pricing structure for the proposed service.
