HD coming to our cable At Feb 2011 !

Well, I contact the UCL ( United Cable Lebanon ) [through [email protected] since their website isn't online yet] they are all the cable guys that we know, the monthly 10$ one,
I asked them about getting HD PLATINIUM receiver, they answered me by....

yes, HD system will be available over PLATINIUM PLATFORM around February 2011
UCL didn't define yet the final bouquet and we trying our best to push this issue.
Please be sure that your screen is full HD 1080p because many screens are "HD ready" and not supporting true HD.

So by February 2011 we can enjoy some nice screen watching,

@shant i guess you only need to change the receiver, you pay the same price and you use the same cable you use now

btw, if it says not authorized means that you cant open any of the porn bouquet...

I sent an email asking about the HD channels and UCL in general to the UCL from around 2 to 3 days and I received the following reply:

"Yes, Platinium is the official receiver used by UCL.
UCL has already about 12 HD channels but supported only with new Platinium model UCL3000. However, you should ask your cable provider if he is redistributing our HD channels or not yet.
From time to time, you have to restore and do search again to renew your channel list. Frequencies are generated by each local cable provider independently from UCL backbone.
Thank you
UCL team"

So no one got the Platinium HD yet ? Is OSN Movies HD available ?

Guys what about OSN Movies on the platinium ! they are disappeared .... new channels arrived instead Comedy , Comedy +2 , Family , Action , Series ..... !!

What are those channels ?!

Re: HD coming to our cable At Feb 2011 !

Yeah...that's what I thought,
Subtitles by King DVD so they created couple of DVD channels (A DVD channel is when the cable guy used to use one channel in order to put the latest movies)

So that movies are all from the Lebanese 1000 LL market (King DVD + some dark pictures !! camera shooting movie lool)

Any news what are the 12 HD channels ?


EDIT : UCL answered,

The 12 channels broadcasted to cable operator are:

Suisse HD
Luxe TV HD
Nova cinema HD
National Geographic HD
TF1 HD
Canal plus 3D
Canalsat HD
France2 HD
Fox movies HD
Jazira 1 HD
Jazira 2 HD
Jazira 3D


These channels are subject to changes without any previous notifications, and local cable operator has the option to add or remove to the above list.
