Fuel TV has launched on OSN, a pay-TV network in the Middle East and North Africa. In February the channel will go full HD 24/7.
Fuel TV is to turn off its SD distribution in favour of HD transmission. The broadcaster says the move, scheduled to take place in January 2011, will make it the first action sports native HD channel in the world.
Fuel TV is extending its coverage further into Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The channel, based around the lifestyle of action sports, has secured a place on Eutelsat’s Eurobird 9A (9 degrees East) where it will be distributed as part of the Kabelkiosk platform.
