DTH operator Sky Mexico has started its HD transmissions.

The offer enables live pause and rewind on an advanced EPG, HD recording, parental control and caller ID on the screen.

Jointly with the financial group Banamex, Sky offers a promotional package that includes a subscription and a ‘full HD’ Samsung TV set.

Sky Mexico is backed by DirecTV (41.3%) and Grupo Televisa (58.7%).

The operator is transmitting 15 HD channels and will broadcast the 64 South African Soccer World Cup 2010 games to be held in June.

A set-top-box with a 500 GB disk that enables 400 standard format programming hours and 100 HD programming hours is included in the offer.

Sky Mexico’s cable rival, Cablevisión, the Mexican operator controlled by Televisa (which also participates financially in Sky Mexico) and which already offers HD, has already started to offer VOD with HBO/Max programming.

Since March, HBO subscribers have received the VOD option that includes 120 monthly programming hours at no additional cost.

The launch had been expected since earlier this year, and it is understood the package will quickly expand to about 40 channels.
