    Sky News HD to launch on 6th April 2010???



    There are growing rumours that that Sky News HD will launch on April 6, once the UK General Election is called.

    This speculation has been further fuelled by Sky News moving operations to Studio B from 30 March so that final preparation can take place in the main newsroom. This has also been fueled by the use of "green screen / chromakey" backgrounds for the channel over the Easter weekend - suggesting changes are happening.

    Sky News HD will be available to customers of the Sky+HD service, but there's no word on whether it will be available on freesat. I'll going to stick my neck out and say 'no chance'.

    It is anticipated that the channel will launch on Sky channel 517.

    Sky News to show election debate in HD

    Sky News to show election debate in HD

    Sky News has outlined its coverage plans for the 2010 election campaign, including the prime ministerial debate programme being aired in high definition.

    On April 22, Boulton will host Sky's prime ministerial debate between the main candidates - Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron - on the Sky News channel from 8pm to 9.30pm.

    The debate will also be carried in high definition on Sky News HD at position 517 on Sky's EPG to "give viewers a taste" of the channel ahead of its full launch.

    On election night, Sky News and Sky News HD will carry the Decision Time programme from 9pm, with Burley joining Jeremy Thompson and Anna Botting to front the pre-count coverage. Eamonn Holmes and Dermot Murnaghan will then take over as the counts finish and the story shifts to Westminster.

    Sky News HD to officially launch on May 6

    Sky has confirmed that Sky News HD will launch on May 6 to coincide with coverage of the election night.

    The channel, which became temporarily available on April 22 for the Sky News prime ministerial debate between Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron, will be officially launched next Thursday as the election race reaches crunch time.

    On election night, Sky News HD will carry the Decision Time programme from 9pm, with Kay Burley joining Jeremy Thompson and Anna Botting to front the pre-count coverage.

    Eamonn Holmes and Dermot Murnaghan will then take over as the counts finish and the story shifts to Westminster.

    "We've made the news ourselves in 2010 by launching the first UK news service in HD with sharper pictures and enhanced services for HD viewers," said Sky News head John Ryley.

    "It's an innovation which clearly defines Sky's strengths, our passion and our restless pursuit to be first and to be the best. The detail of Sky News HD is stunning - I hope our viewers will enjoy the new experience."

    The new HD channel is also supported by an upgraded Sky News HD studio and improved resources in the field, along with enhanced HD on-screen graphics.
