The Belgian IPTV provider Belgacom TV will launch an HD service as part of its IPTV offer this April, the company has announced. The new service is possible with the new VDSL2 network the company will start to use. The new network will reach about 60% of all Belgian homes. Subscribers will not only be able to see HD programming, but will also be able to connect a second tuner to the IPTV service. No details of the HD offer have been announced, but earlier the Euro 1080 company said it had sighed a distribution contract for its Exqi cultural channel in HD. Belgacom is the fourth provider of HD in Belgium; in Flanders both Interkabel and Telenet offer HD channels, while in Brussel HD is available on the Coditel cable network.
