Spain’s satellite system Hispasat has doubled its HDTV offering for Spain and Portugal, broadcasting nine HD channels as well as the complete HDTV offering of the operators Portugal Telecom’s MEO Sat and ZON TV Cabo.

Hispasat has just included a new HDTV package so that ZON’s subscribers will be able to have six new HDTV channels apart from the five already existing.

The system broadcasts Eurosport HD, Fox HD, Canal+Acción HD, MTVN HD, National Geographic HD, Canal+ HD, Canal+Liga HD, Canal+ Dcine HD and Canal+ Deportes HD.

The satellite operator has also incorporated the channel Russia Today.

In the frame of technological HD innovation, Hispasat continues to lead the Palco HD 2 project co-financed by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Commerce within the Avanza I+D plan.

Among the goals of this project are the investigation and development of tools for the control and measurement of the quality of HD signals, either in the production and transmission phases or in its reception by the Spaniard users.

Hispasat is the world’s seventh-largest satellite operator by revenue and it also leads the broadcasting and distribution of Spanish and Portuguese content with more than 1,100 radio and TV channels including the most important DTH operators and HDTV operators in Europe and in America.

In 2008 the operator grew net profits 31%, or €47 million, so reaching for the fifth consecutive year a new historical maximum in all the financial areas according to the company.
