Unitymedia cuts analogue channels for larger HD offer

Tuesday 23 June 2015 | 15:47 CET | News
Unitymedia announced plans to fully digitise its television programming on 1 July. The reduction of analogue channels creates room for new free channels in HD, such as BBC World News HD on position 96, Einsfestival HD on 51, ZDFneo HD on 43 and 3sat HD 09. The switch will take place between 29 June and 1 July at night. Unitymedia also announced plans to offer more digital and HD channels in the coming months.
