Indian multi-system operator (MSO) DEN Networks is now offering subscribers in Kerala a new high definition package of 22 television channels.

Among the channels are Star Plus, Zee TV, Zee Cinema, Star Gold, Star World, Life OK, NGC, NGC Wild, NGC Music, HBO Hits, HBO Defined, Star Movies, Movies Now, Romedy Now, Zee Studio, Star Sports HD1 and Star Sports HD2.

"Our ability to keep our customers in pace with the times has led to us being among the fastest growing players in cable TV distribution in Kerala. Our new HD package is yet another step towards bringing a richer, high definition TV viewing experience for our customers in Kochi," said S N Sharma, CEO, DEN Networks.

"Kerala has more than 1.2 million subscribers and most of them are early adapters when it comes to latest technology," added Sharma.

He said DEN would increase its presence across all 14 districts of Kerala in the coming "few months" and would also introduce the HD package in towns including Trivandrum, Kottayam, Kannur, Mallapuram, and Pallakad.

Kerala has around six million cable homes of which DEN claims a 20% share.
