Fransat airs French Polynesia programme clips in Ultra HD

Friday 10 April 2015 | 10:59 CET | News
French TV operator Fransat is airing extracts from the documentary, "The Exporers Network in French Polynesia" over the Fransat Ultra HD channel, launched last December. The channel offers an image with 8 megapixels, compared to 2 million for HD and 50 frames per second, rather than 25. It is accessible on channel 444 for customers with a Fransat CI+ devie and any of twelve compatible TVs from Samsung. The encrypted channel shows a selection of visually impressive programmes, including dance shows, Eutelsat 3D, an Ariane launch and the opera La Boheme. It uses the Eutelsat 5 West A satellite.
