A little while ago, the folks at Saorview, asked that people would retune their Saorview boxes. This was primarily for two reasons.
- The Saorview service was moving to a multi mux setup
- This in turn would enable more HD channels to be added to the Saorview lineup
To that end, today the 16th December 2013, RTE One HD has now started broadcasting. This launch of RTE One HD is timed to coincide with the Christmas period and from the Saorview press release, it looks like there will be plenty of films in HD to watch when you are getting stuck into the last of the turkey sandwiches!!!
Kung Fu Panda 2, Shrek Forever After, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Bridesmaids, Robin Hood, Avatar, Up and the Indiana Jones series will all be broadcast in stunning high definition over the Christmas period according to the Saorview team.
Now all they need to provide us with is the rennie 🙂
