Virgin Media launches new HD channels

Virgin has named four new High Definition (HD) channels which will soon be available on its TV platform.

For the first time, LIVING, FX, MTV Networks International and National Geographic will be available in HD on Virgin Media, with the first channel due to launch at the end of July.

The new channels offer HD content, from programmes such as Grey's Anatomy, Dexter and Generation Kill, to documentaries and live music events in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.

Neil Berkett, Chief Executive Officer of Virgin Media, said: "As more homes become HD-ready, the launch of four new HD channels marks the next stage in the evolution of our pioneering TV service. Our line-up of HD channels and hugely popular on demand content is a unique and winning combination and we'll continue to bring more sport, films, entertainment and documentaries to our customers."

Virgin Media is also currently in active talks with UKTV about Good Food HD.
