UPC has launched what is Romania’s first HD music channel.
Known as HD UTV, is has been made available nationally to all customers who subscribe to the operator’s HD package, which also includes HD TVR, Pro TV HD, HBO HD, Eurosport HD, sport.ro HD, National Geographic Channel HD, The History Channel HD and Fashion TV HD.
The package, which was launched in October last year, costs €15 a month plus VAT to receive and already has over 7,000 subscribers.
UTV made its debut five years ago as a SD channel and the content carried by it and HD UTV will initially be identical. However, in due course UTV HD will become a more targeted service.
