According to RTN Doordarshan is setting up a free high-definition broadcasting system in the four cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai, the ministry of information and broadcasting said. Free terrestrial broadcasting of HD quality TV channels is likely to be a novelty in a country where nearly 99% of the people watch SD or standard definition channels only. However, about 20-30% of the households have HD compatible television sets and a smaller subset of the customers would have full-HD enabled television sets. Nearly all TVs sold in India are HD-compatible, and an estimated 30% of the TVs sold are full-HD (1080p) enabled. However, the transmission of HD programs has lagged the adoption of HD TVs due to the high number of channels being broadcast in India. India currently has about 650 active TV channels. A full-HD channel, such as Movies Now HD, would require about 8-10 times the bandwidth of a standard definition (SD) channel. In other words, TV channel providers such as cable operators and DTH companies would be able to offer only about 35-50 channels instead of the current 300-400 channels if they switched over to HD.
