MBC HD channels to be available on Technosat boxes

Posted on: February 28th, 2011     by Vijaya Cherian

The content of MBC's HD channels will be identical to its SD channels.

MBC has signed a deal with set top box (STB) manufacturer Technosat, Broadcast Pro ME can reveal. According to the deal, MBC’s HD channels (when they are launched) will be available on Technosat STBs although it is not known whether the deal is exclusive. 

BroadcastPro first broke the story in early February that MBC was planning to launch HD channels. The channels will carry the same programming content as MBC’s standard definition channels but in HD format for those who would like a richer viewing experience.

Initially, it was thought that the channels would perhaps be carried on a pay TV network. However, sources close to the broadcaster told BroadcastPro ME that the HD channels would also be free-to-air.

Neither Technosat nor MBC were available for comment.

    DISH Network has the most advanced DVR’s in the pay TV industry right now. With the newest VIP 922 having built in capabilities of the Sling Adapter, it is the best receiver available. Being a DISH employee I can tell you that it doesn’t get better than this! Not to mention that there are a lot of people who don’t know really all of the great things that DISH can give to you as a customer. Including free HD, the Logitech Revue, the most channels both in standard and digital. On top of that DISH offers the best Customer Service in the industry!
