The channels will combine current programming available on theme-based channels, screening high-definition content.
Foxtel’s sales house Multi Channel Network is only just beginning to go out to market with the advertising opportunities available, says advertising mag B&T.
The subscription TV provider will start with four HD channels and will increase this number from April 2009. Due to problems with limited bandwidth for satellite broadcasts, Foxtel has to wait for increased bandwidth to become available via an Optus satellite.
Next week Foxtel launches its new iQHD to media followed by an official preview event of the channels on January 30.
