SVT HD makes Viasat's HD lineup slightly less pitiful

Darren Murph

Europe as a whole could use a real shot in the arm when it comes to HD, so we guess we can't point and laugh too much as Viasat increases its HD lineup from three networks -- Viasat Sport HD, TV1000 HD and National Geographic HD -- to four. Public broadcaster SVT HD is all set to join the others in short order, as Viasat attempts to maintain competitive balance with rival Canal Digital, which already offers the channel. There's no word on an actual go-live date (nor any indication of extra charges), but on a slightly separate note, we are told that Danish channel TV2 Sport HD will resume high-def airings when it covers the SAS football league after it returns from winter break.
