New Sky HD channel begins

The UK got a new HD channel to brag about, one that American's are sorely missing. History HD will made its debut today. Americans, and Canadians I assume, will be looking forward to The History Channel HD sometime in 2007.

From the article:

Sky’s newest high definition TV channel, The History Channel HD, begins broadcasting today. Transmitting from 8am until 2am daily, on Sky Guide channel 545, it promises to offer a different schedule to its standard definition sibling. Programmes include the UK premieres of Engineering an Empire, Warrior Empire: The Mughals, and The Sahara, as well as HD versions of The Plague, The Crusades: Crescent and The Cross, and Beyond the Da Vinci Code.
