The Polish DTH platform Cyfra+ has improved its offer by increasing the number of packages with HD channels.

It now provides a total of eight packages, or three more than previously, with the number including HD channels rising from one to five. Furthermore, the cost of HD channels is now included in that of the packages.

In another important change, Cyfra+ has also increased the number of packages carrying the Canal+ family of channels (Canal+, Canal+ Film, Canal+ Film HD, Canal+ Sport, Canal+ Sport HD and Canal+ Sport 2) to three.

Cyfra+ís eight packages vary in price from PLN19.90 (Ä5) a month for Start (formerly known as Powitalny+) to PLN168.90 Prestiz HD+ (formerly known as Prestizowy HD+). Later this autumn the platform plans to introduce a new sports channel (Canal+ Gol), as well as new packages known as Canal+ HD and Multipremium HD.
