Europe will shortly have its first-ever HD channel aimed exclusively at toddlers.

Operated by the Bratislava-based company Mega Max Media, bebe tv HD will be distributed by Eurobird 9 at 9 degrees East, which is also employed by the Hungarian DTH platform Hello HD, and on air for 14 hours daily.

It will use Conax CAS7 conditional access and the same programming library as its sister service bebe tv.

Bebe tv is already present in 11 CEE countries, along with Malta, Cyprus, The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

It is understood that bebe tv HD will make its debut next month.
