Canal+ will open up access to its 13 high definition TV channels to digital satellite receivers carrying the Canal Ready label. The label was launched a month ago, to inform consumers of the compatibility of TV equipment with Canal+ offers and services.

Viewers equipped with a high definition-capable Canal Ready digital receiver, from brands Strong and Sagem, will just have to subscribe to the Canal+ and CanalSatellite HD offers to get the dedicated channels.

CanalSat’s HD offer includes Cinecinema Premier HD, Disney Cinemagic HD, Eurosport HD, Ushuaïa HD and National Geographic HD, among others.

New label Canal Ready will soon be extended to DTT terminals and the new generation of TV sets.
