Czech TV prepares for HD

The Czech public broadcaster CT will start trialling an HDTV channel later this year.

The news about the service, which will probably make its debut in September, was given by CT’s technical director Rudolf Pop and quoted in Digizone.

He added that format/structure of a full HD channel – it is assumed that one will make its debut ahead of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver – will have to be agreed with the country’s Radio and TV Council (RRTV).
