French satellite TV service Fransat, which carries all free-to-air DTT channels, has added HD versions of TMC, NT1 and NRJ12 to its line-up. Fransat also offers SD versions of the three channels, as well as the country's ten other national channels in HD. Viewers are advised to purchase a Fransat HD-enabled STB to enjoy a sharper picture quality, something they will have to do by April 2016 anyway, after DTT transmissions are upgraded to the DVB S2-MPEG 4 standard.
