BBC World News goes HD in Europe


The BBC’s commercially funded international news channel BBC World News is now available free-to-air in HD across Europe.

This follows a deal between satellite operator SES and BBC Global News Ltd.

The HD version of the channel is being broadcast from SES Astra satellites at 19.2 degrees East, the same satellite position used for German free-to-air channels.

BBC World News HD is not available on dishes solely set up for Sky UK and Freesat.
