Chorus Launches High Definition Digital TV service in Ireland

Chorus ntl has unveiled its new high definition digital + TV service in Ireland. The move means that Chorus ntl's customers across its national triple play footprint will be able to watch shows in HD including ‘Who Do You Think You Are' and ‘Dragon's Den' on BBC HD.

It features a range of programmes from channels including BBC HD and Discovery HD, The service also includes functionality to pause, record and rewind up to 140 hours of live television.

The HD Digital+ Set Top Box delivers a high-resolution crystal clear picture with Dolby Digital surround sound. The picture quality is superior because the number of pixels is up to five times higher than normal television. The resulting picture is much more life like and, combined with superior surround sound, gives viewers an intensive 3-dimensional experience.

Simon Kelehan, head of TV with Chorus ntl, said: "Nearly half a million homes are future-proofed to receive Chorus ntl HD services. Our Digital+ service enabling viewers to pause, rewind and record live television is performing well, with over 70% of new customers opting for the service."

"Next year we will introduce another layer of innovative digital TV technology by introducing video-on-demand so our customers can access catch up TV and a wide choice of library material from their favourite channels."
