Comedy Central goes HD
#1
MUMBAI:
The
English
entertainment
channel
from
Viacom18
stable,
Comedy
Central
is
going
to
take
a
high
definition
(HD)
route.
The
comedy
channel,
which
so
far
only
had
a
standard
definition
(SD)
feed,
will
now
be
available
in
HD.
While the HD feed is currently
available only on Tata Sky, it will
soon be offered on other platforms as
well. Comedy Central HD was launched
on Tata Sky on 1 July. “Comedy
Central is now HD and so all the Tata
Sky subscribers can enjoy the channel
in HD,” said Viacom18 group CEO
Sudhanshu Vats.
Comedy Central HD on Tata Sky is
priced at Rs 20 on a-la-carte.
Surprisingly, the SD feed on a-la-
carte on the platform is priced the
same. Currently, the channel’s SD and
HD feed are part of Tata Sky’s ‘Grand
Sports Pack’ that is available at Rs
470 per month.
“We have just launched Comedy
Central HD, once it is available on all
platforms, we will only have the HD
feed,” said a source from the
network.
No marketing plans have been chalked
out to promote the HD version of the
channel at least for the next two
months.
It can be noted that Viacom18 is all
set to launch two new English
entertainment channels—Colors
Infinity and Colors Infinity HD. The
new channels will have shows from
across genres including drama,
comedy, super heroes, talent,
lifestyle, action, mini-series and live
events.
With the addition of Comedy Central
HD, there are now four HD English
entertainment channels. These
include: Star World HD, Star World
Premiere HD and AXN HD. This number,
by the end of the year, after the
launch of Colors Infinity HD, FX HD
and Zee Café HD, will go up to seven.
