Premiere restructures HD pack

Premiere has announced plans to reduce the number of HD channels from three to two. The movies and sports channels, Premiere HD Film and Premiere HD Sport, will be combined into the mixed format Premiere HD and it will no longer be necessary to buy-through the regular Premiere packages in order to access the HD channels. The move will reduce the price for new HD subscribers by up to €35. The channels will be available for €9 a piece and as part of the €44.99 ‘7-pack’ offer. Discovery HD will continue as before and will take advantage of the reduced capacity to launch on the Kabel Deutschland network in November.
