kykNET goes HD

Posted by radio On July - 17 - 2014

On Tuesday, 12 August 2014, kykNET will join the league of M-Net and the sport and movie channels on DStv when the channel becomes available in high definition (HD).kykNET_logo_A5


“This is great news for both us and our viewers,” says Karen Meiring, Director of Afrikaans channels. “Now our viewers will feel as if they are in the office with At Koster of Binnelanders while he’s cooking up his plans. And also riding the emotional rollercoaster of Boer Soek ’n Vrou!


“We are delighted to be able to honour our commitment to viewers in which we promised to keep on increasing their viewing pleasure. KykNET now becomes the first and only Afrikaans channel in the world to deliver programming in HD.”
Meiring says the phasing in of HD on kykNET should be a seamless process. “Our producers have been working in with HD cameras and production equipment for some time, which enables them to deliver programmes in HD immediately.”


Only viewers with PVR and Explora decoders, however, will be able to watch kykNET in HD. “Now there is yet another reason to purchase an Explora, especially now that we’re in the process of taking kykNET’s offering to a next level. The Explora will bring you a whole new world of TV,” says Meiring.

HD on kykNET won’t, however, change the viewing pleasure for viewers with previous generation decoders.
