The French CanalSat platform is adding five new HD channels to its existing line-up of 36 high def channels. The offer includes two new channels to the French market.

Djazz.TV HD is a new channel from the Netherlands and is part of the Brava TV group. It claims to be the world’s first 24/7 jazz channel. CanalSat customers can subscribe to the channel as an a la carte option for €4 a month.

Also new to the platform is Blackbelt TV, for lovers of fighting sports, including Thai boxing and actors such as Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. The channel can be previewed free of charge until November 30, when it becomes part of the Frisson bouquet.

The remaining three new HD channels are already available in SD on the platform. They are Planète+ HD, Ciné+ Frisson HD and Ciné+ Emotion HD.
