Tiscali TV launches HD 'Harry Potter'

Tiscali has launched a range of pay-per-view high definition movies on its Tiscali+ TV service, starting with the Harry Potter series.

From today, subscribers can access Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince in HD, along with all five previous Harry Potter movies.

Under the scheme, new HD releases will be available to rent for 4.95 - compared to 3.99 for standard definition variants - and library HD films will cost 2.99.

Reports suggest that Tiscali+ boxes are currently performing background downloads for the new HD content.
