SES HD+ Platform Brings RTL Deutschland On Board

European entertainment network Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland will start broadcasting their Ultra HD channel “RTL UHD” to German viewers as of April 28 via SES’s HD platform HD+.

The Ultra HD channel will begin with the live transmission of the Formula 1™ race from Baku, Azerbaijan, and will subsequently broadcast 17 races of the 2018 season, while distributing all the events simultaneously in HD.

As RTL’s partner of choice for distribution via satellite, HD+ is expanding its UHD package and bringing to its viewers even more high-quality entertainment and sports highlights in an immersive picture quality. With UHD1 and Travelxp 4K already available on HD+, RTL UHD becomes the third Ultra HD channel included in the TV package. The expanded offer is available to HD+ subscribers equipped with UHD TVs at no additional cost.
