After months of anticipation, Star Plus HD will be launching in the UK on the Sky Digital platform in July.
Rajan Singh, Executive Vice President of Star TV International, confirmed on his Twitter account that plans were underway to launch Star Plus HD on Sky Digital just in time for the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards. Star TV is the official broadcaster of the awards ceremony.
The tweet read, “Star Plus HD on Sky on 5th July to ensure IIFA shown on HD just now on the techy boys and girls to sort it out.”
While the show takes place at the beginning of June, Star Plus will be showing the main event on Saturday 7th July – days after Star Plus HD launches in the UK.
The broadcaster is yet to announce plans for the Star Plus HD channel, even though it was confirmed last year that it was working on bringing the service to the UK, along with Star Gold HD. The latter will be also be launching in the UK but at a later date.
Sky package and pricing of the new Star Plus HD channel will be revealed later this month.
