German broadcaster Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland offers its TV channel RTLplus in HD quality for the first time.
The first distribution partner is Vodafone Deutschland where RTLplus HD is available on cable, IPTV and mobile devices through the GigaTV app. All free-to-air channels from RTL are, thus, now carried by Vodafone in HD resolution.
Vodafone customers can also receive pay-TV channels GEO Television HD, RTL Crime HD and RTL Living HD. In total, the network operator offers 78 channels in HD quality and 69 catch-up TV services.
