4HD to land on Freesat this April as fourth HD channel

Freesat to add fourth high-definition channel this April

The high-definition version of Channel 4, 4HD is to arrive on digital TV service Freesat this April, becoming the fourth HD channel to be offered by the subscription-free satellite service.

Announcing the addition to the HD roster via its official Twitter page Freesat teased: “"Morning freesaters, we have some news. You might want to sit down for this one..." before adding: "Channel 4 confirms that 4HD will join Freesat in April."

The arrival of 4HD to Freesat will see Channel 4’s HD offering join the high-definition treats of BBC One HD, BBC HD and ITV 1 HD.

Although trumping Freeview with its HD-touting credentials at launch, the recent arrival of Freeview HD, now reported to be in 642,000 homes across the UK with more than 1.2 million units sold, saw Freesat fall by the wayside to its cabled counterpart’s four available HD channels.

With both Freesat and Freeview HD both now offering users the same four HD channels, the increasing market share of Freeview will be solely attributed to its readily available inclusion inbuilt into a range of the latest high-end TVs.
