German music broadcaster Deluxe Music will offer its service in high definition from 17 December 2012.
Deluxe Music HD will be available via satellite to DTH households in Germany exclusively on SES' fee-based HDTV platform HD+ via Astra (19.2° East).
The channel, which screens music videos from genres such as rock, disco and soul, will be the 15th service on board HD+. Distribution will be on the frequency 10,803 GHz H (SR 22,000, FEC 3/4).
"With the launch of Deluxe Music HD, all music fans will be able to enjoy probably the only real German-language free-to-air music channel in HD quality," said Alexander Trauttmansdorff, managing director of parent company High View Media.
"Deluxe Music HD will initially be distributed exclusively via HD+," explained Trauttmansdorff. Further platforms will follow over the next year.
