Rounding Up HD News: ‘ET’ Goes HD

Oct 25, 2007  •  Post A Comment

‘ET’ Goes HD
Celebrity gossip and stories about Hollywood happenings will be getting a whole lot clearer. CBS Domestic Television’s syndicated series “Entertainment Tonight” is set to begin airing in high definition next year, according to TVPredictions.com. The Web site reported that Mark Steines recently was quoted in the New York Daily News saying he agreed to stay with the program “when the show goes high-def next season as part of a new studio setup.” “ET” would be joining CBS Domestic TV’s other syndicated series in HD, “Jeopardy!” and “Wheel of Fortune.”
iN Demand Launches Package Channels Using New Technology
iN Demand Networks launched two new high-definition sports package channels, GameHD and TeamHD, using a unique technology that will enable cable systems to conserve bandwidth. The two new channels will be found in the traditional sports package area of the cable system’s lineup, the company said. Consumers will think they are getting two distinct channels. However, iN Demand actually is compressing the signals along with its existing HD Pay Per View channel into the bandwidth of one HD channel. TeamHD will air NBA-scheduled HD games and GameHD will air HD NHL and MLB games. IN Demand said the technology is free to operators and inflicts no extra costs on the viewer, who already subscribes to the out-of-market sports package. One sporting event will air on one of three channels each night of the week. The network said this approach will help cable to match the HD content offered by satellite.
Voom’s Animania HD Acquires Series for Kids
Voom HD Networks’ high-definition animated channel, Animania HD, on Monday announced the acquisition of three new kids series. “The Gloops,” a short-form and voiceless series about an alien family, is part of the channel’s preschool programming block. “Cosmic Quantum Ray” is an action-adventure comedy about a teenager who engages in battles with teens from other galaxies. “Animalia,” based on Graeme Base’s best-selling picture book, will make its worldwide debut with 40 half-hour episodes. In September, Animania HD and Family Room HD acquired three new kids series, underscoring Voom’s commitment to offering children HD programming. “Animania HD is actively working to give children a truly cinematic viewing experience by airing animated programming in true HD,” Keith O’Connell, VP of programming for Voom HD’s Film and Series Services, said in a statement.
