Zon TV Cabo adds new HD channel
Newly-named Portuguese pay TV operator Zon TV Cabo (formerly TV Cabo) is bumping up its high-definition TV offering, adding a new exclusive sports service, Sport TV HD.
The move comes right after Portugal's main telco Portugal Telecom (PT) announced the launch of Eurosport HD in its satellite and IPTV offerings. But Sport TV HD will be the only Portuguese channel offering the upcoming Euro 2008 soccer tournament live in HD.
Zon TV Cabo also offers MOV HD and National Geographic Channel HD as well as the forthcoming Beijing Olympic Games also in HD (although the games will also be offered in HD by Portuguese public broadcaster RPT).
Next up for the operator will be film channels TVCine HD which will broadcast in HD from next September.
