MTV HD is to join the line-up of French cablenet Numericable, one month after the station joined the DTH package CanalSat.
Numericable is promising a picture quality of 13 Mbps and native HD content representing 65% of the schedule. Programming includes recent concerts from Amy Winehouse, REM, Kate Nash and Gnarls Barkley. Scenes from the MTV Europe Music Awards and the Unplugged and Storytellers series will also be screened.
In addition to MTV HD, Numericable’s high definition line-up also includes MRJ 12 HD and cultural channel Brava HD.
