HD Channels Update
Please be advised that on the 18th October 2010 Hallmark Channel HD will re-brand to Universal Channel HD.
Hallmark Channel HD has a loyal audience with a strong line-up of content, however the re-brand to such an instantly recognisable channel name will allow it to further its appeal to a new audience and add great new HD content, such as Rookie Blue and Shattered.
We have an exciting period of HD channel launches coming up, with 3 channels joining Sky+HD in the next week. Our 47th, 48th and 49th HD channel launches mean we are fast approaching our target of 50 and bringing our customers more of the everyday TV they love in extraordinary high definition.
