Why are RTL, ProSieben & Co. not available in HD?

The RTL and ProSieben Sat1 Group channels are not available in HD via TV7. This is not because we don't want them, but because these broadcaster groups prohibit us from retransmitting them in HD. The background to this is that these broadcasters only allow HD retransmission if the signals are encrypted, but we support the philosophy of unencrypted retransmission. This regulation is actually contrary to the philosophy of Swiss legislation on signal retransmission. We will continue to fight to ensure that HD is also possible for these broadcasters in the future.
