NHK WORLD HD has launched on the Sky and Freesat platforms.
NHK WORLD HD is a 24/7 English language channel produced by JIB and NHK, Japan's public broadcaster, fed live from Tokyo. NHK World will be the first news channel to be broadcast in HD on Freesat.
"The live video coverage of the earthquake and tsunami which hit Eastern Japan on March 11 displayed the power of HD television extensively," said Hatsuhisa Takashima, President and CEO of JIB. "Now we are able to make this state of the art technology and powerful English language news coverage available to the television viewers in the U.K."
