MTV3, Sub and Ava now freely available in HD quality in the DNA cable network

Jaa

DNA has added MTV’s Sub and AVA channels in HD quality in DNA’s cable network. Simultaneously, also MTV3 in HD quality, became available for free viewing. All three HD channels can now be viewed in DNA’s cable network without a TV card.

Starting today, all three free-to-air HD (high-definition) channels of MTV are available without encryption for all DNA cable network households. Sub and AVA in HD quality are new additions to the DNA cable network. MTV3 has been previously available in the DNA cable network in HD quality, but viewing it has required a TV card.

HD broadcast offers a sharper picture, livelier colours and more clearly visible details. HD picture shines through on a large TV screen, particularly in fast-paced sports broadcasts, movies, nature documentaries and other programmes that benefit from a high-quality picture.

“We are very pleased to have reached an agreement on the distribution of MTV’s HD channels to our viewers. Our goal is to provide all channels with the best available picture quality. This is also what our customers want, as the HD readiness of cable households is already at an excellent level with nearly all cable network households able to view high-quality HD broadcasts”, says Mikko Saarentaus, Director at DNA Entertainment Business.

The majority of the channels in MTV’s C More packages can be watched in HD quality in DNA’s cable network, offering, for example, movies and series, and for the sports fans, their favourite winter sports – all in excellent picture quality

“We want to provide our customers a better viewing experience with our selection of HD channels. We have invested heavily in a selection of domestic entertainment that comes into its own when viewed in HD quality”, says Risto Koivula, Deputy Managing Director at MTV in charge of distribution.

Channel numbers for MTV HD channels in the DNA cable network:

  • MTV3 HD - 23
  • Sub HD - 26
  • AVA HD - 33

The channels may be viewed without a TV card, but, as with other high-definition channels, a Cable Ready HD receiver is required. If the channels do not appear on the TV channel list automatically, a new channel search should be performed by consulting the device’s user manual.

In the terrestrial network, viewing the MTV3 HD channel continues to require a TV card. In DNA’s cable network, TV card is still required to view the Nelonen HD, FOX HD and National Geographic HD channels. DNA’s cable selection now includes a total of over 50 HD channels.

Distribution of Discovery and Eurosport pay-TV channels to DNA’s customers is at risk of being discontinued on 1 January8.12.2017 09:35Tiedote

DNA is preparing to discontinue the distribution of the Discovery and Eurosport pay-TV channels starting from 1 January 2018. This is due to the unreasonably high distribution fee increase demands that the television company Discovery has presented during the agreement negotiations, and the fact that the risk of discontinued distribution has already realised with several other operators in a similar situation.
