E4 HD, Channel 4's second dedicated HD channel, is to launch on the 14 December on Sky+HD. A simulcast of E4, the channel will provide access to series such as Glee, Misfits, Hollyoaks and Peep Show in HD.
The multi-year deal will see E4 HD incorporated into Sky's HD Pack and brings the total number of HD channels available through Sky+HD to 36.
Sarah Rose, Head of Channel Development at Channel 4, said: "The growing appetite for HD across the UK and Ireland is clear to see. We were quick to respond to this demand in launching Channel 4 HD, and with the launch of E4 HD we look forward to delivering our viewers even more of the shows they love in stunning high definition."
Hilary Perchard, Sky's Director of Product Management, adds: "We're delighted to welcome E4 HD and another quality HD schedule to Sky. We've never seen higher demand for Sky+HD and this is a response to delivering customers a high-quality and wide-ranging selection of subscription HD programming. Incorporating an increasingly diverse mix of the channels and programmes our customers love, Sky continues to extend its HD leadership."
Sky recently confirmed that its Sky+HD set-top boxes will offer both a comprehensive 'pull' video-on-demand service from 2010, and the current Sky Anytime 'push' VOD service.
