Doordarshan (DD) has announced high definition (HD)) broadcast of the upcoming common wealth games in 2010 to be held in Delhi.
The Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Ministry has requested for Cabinet's approval to grant the feeds to all the studios in four metro cities of India.
But High-Definition viewing can only be achieved if the user has a High-Definition enabled television or a set top box which would make High-Definition viewing feasible in regular televisions.
Doordarshan is yet to digitalize its 1400 analog transmitters which would make way for the High-Definition technology to be available. More than INR 430 Crores are being invested for the same.
This step by Doordarshan to bring High-Definition viewing is evident that India is not a snail in implementing new technological advancements.
All those commonwealth freaks can start setting up their High-Definition televisions or set top boxes to enjoy the virtual stadium.
