In a troubled week restructuring the platform's future, Canal+ is continuing to increase its HD portfolio, one of the largest of Spain's pay-TV market. The recently launched Comedy Central and AXN White will now be broadcast in high definition.
The two new channels top a schedule with over 30 HD channels which are available through Canal+'s interactive set-top box (STB), iPlus.
Viacom's Comedy Central was launched this week, replacing Paramount Comedy as part of the company's worldwide strategy to reinforce the network's brand. The channel is broadcast in HD on every Spanish pay-TV platform and has premiered the in-house production El Roast de Santiago Segura to reinforce the channel's spirit: national shows as well as international shows which have achieved audience success.
AXN White HD focuses on series and films, one more premium HD entertainment network for Canal+ subscribers. Smash, Pretty Little Liars and Hart of Dixie are among the channel's most watched shows.
