French satellite platform TDS to launch HDTV channel

MUMBAI: High definition programming is not coming - it's already here. Since the beginning of 2004 Euro 1080 has been broadcasting a daily schedule of music and sports in the HDTV format. But that's not all. French satellite platform TPS is planning to launch a dedicated HDTV channel.

Our expert speakers will tell you how terrestrial, cable, satellite and other digital platforms should prepare for the widespread deployment of HDTV. You'll be able to benefit from the experience of panelists the US, Japanese and Australian markets that have already introduced the format.
