Estonia goes down HD route

Estonia’s leading cable operator Starman has become the first in the country to offer a package of full HD channels in Dolby 5.1 stereo sound.

The channels are Nat Geo HD, Eurosport HD, History HD, Rush HD and Arte HD and will cost EEK99 (€6.32) a month to receive.

They will be joined by Eurosport2 HD in the New Year. Starman, which also operates the DTT platform ZUUMtv, claims its services are received in 560,000 homes.
