Virgin Media to offer more HD channels


by David Allen

Virgin Media is planning to introduce more high definition channels on its cable network, in competition with BSkyB.

In fact, Virgin plans to offer around five HD channels by the autumn.

For many subscribers this can’t come too soon considering that there is only one HD channel, BBC HD, on the network, with other HD content being made available through the video on demand service.

The market for HD is large; according to estimates, there are around fourteen million households with an HD ready TV already.

BSkyB’s HD service is going to be hard to beat from Virgin Media’s point of view, because of the choice available, but there is the £10 per month charge for Sky+ HD, which could be a consideration in which broadcaster becomes the top in HD TV.
