ITV HD WalesITV Cymru Wales will broadcast its news and programmes in HD from August 25. ITV Wales moved to a new HD-capable HQ in June 2014.
The current ITV HD service from transmitters in Wales (on Freeview channel 103) will become ITV Cymru Wales HD.
Viewers in Wales watching via Sky, Freesat and Cable will also receive ITV Cymru Wales HD.

“A key strength of ITV Cymru Wales is that the news and programmes we make in Wales are available to all viewers in Wales, so it’s fantastic that we will soon be transmitting in HD.
Securing the investment needed for HD transmissions across Freeview, satellite and cable has been a key priority for us since our move to our new broadcast centre in Cardiff Bay a year ago. It further demonstrates the value that ITV places in the distinctive news and programmes we make here in Wales.

It’s also terrific news for Welsh rugby fans as the changes will be in place in time for our special coverage of the Wales team in the Rugby World Cup, including all the live games that feature Wales.”

– Phil Henfrey, Head of News and Programmes, ITV Cymru Wales
