German interactive youth TV channel joiz will offer its programmes in high definition (HD) from 16 December 2013.

joiz HD will initially launch on Deutsche Telekom's IPTV platform Entertain, with further distribution platforms to follow.

"We launched joiz in August 2013 on the German market. Only four months later we now make the step towards HD," Carsten Kollmus, head of joiz Deutschland, said. "At the same time, we will expand our reach. We are already in discussions with further platform providers."
