From February, Prime Television will be available in High Definition (HD). No, really, but that's for SKY customers only - if they have a new SKY box, a MY SKY HDi box or a MY SKY+ box.

If you're on Freeview, you won't have access to HD just yet. Prime is dead keen to get HD rolled out to as many people as possible, as soon as possible and the Prime team are still in discussions with their various broadcast providers on how to do that. 

With some great new content coming in February and the Rio Olympics only a few months away, they made the decision to get HD up and running for those they could now while they continue to talk to other providers, including Freeview. Freeview|HD and FreeviewPlus are capable of HD broadcasts and available to 86% of New Zealand homes (via UHF aerial). 

Prime will keep you in touch as soon as they have any further updates on HD availability.
