Canal+ prepping Sport HD, Film HD for Spain
Now that Canal+ customers in Spain have developed a taste of HD sports, Canal+ is readying Sport HD for its debut in the fall. But to introduce a little more variety into the HD-diet, Film HD is also being brought to the TV food pyramid. It sounds like Spaniards are loving their HD, with 92-percent of iPlus HD PVR owners reporting they'd recommend the device to friends. Specific offerings for Film HD weren't given, but the Sport HD channel has UEFA Champions League soccer, NBA basketball and tennis lined up -- all the better to bring the Spanish countryman Rafael Nadal's progress in December's Australian Open.
