Seoul, Korea -- Skylife’s SkyHD have agreed to launch high definition television programming drawn from a variety of New York-based, Rainbow HD Holdings' VOOM HD network brands on Korea’s first and only high-definition (HD) programming service.
The daily, primetime two-hour block will feature five VOOM HD network brands - Ultra HD, Rush HD, Equator HD, GamePlay HD, and Monsters HD - throughout the week.
The digital broadcast announcement was made by Greg Moyer, VOOM HD’s General Manager, and Keum Pyo Hong, President of SkyHD.
Rainbow HD will provide SkyHD with 368 hours of programming over the next two years culled from its extensive VOOM HD Networks suite of HD channels and produced exclusively in true high-definition and 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound.
The primetime blocks will begin airing on SkyHD in Q3 2006 and have the potential to be seen in both HD and standard-definition by nearly two million households throughout Korea.
