ARD to broadcast in HD only on satellite from 2021

Thursday 13 February 2020 | 15:41 CET | News
German broadcaster ARD announced that it will start to broadcast its programs in HD only over satellite from January 2021. This means that it will stop broadcasting the programs in SD over satellite from next year. The channels Das Erste, tagesschau24 ONE and ARD-alpha will be in HD. By switching to HD only, ARD expects to reduce broadcasting costs and follow the trend of an increasing numbers of households viewing the programs in HD.
