The German version of pay-TV channel History HD will be available on Kabel Deutschland's cable network again from 26 August 2013. Carriage will be as part of subscription package Kabel Premium HD which will then contain a total of 15 HD channels.
Germany's largest cable operator removed the high definition version of the channel in mid-December 2012. Since then, History HD has only been available in Germany and Austria on Sky Deutschland's pay-TV platform.
The return of History HD is part of a long-term extension of the carriage contract between parent company A+E Networks Germany and Kabel Deutschland for the cable distribution of History and The Biography Channel.
In Switzerland, History HD can be received on the cable network of UPC Cablecom and on IPTV platform Sunrise TV.
