    The French HD Forum is reporting that this will be back up sometime next week with new content.

    Well its up again. Pretty good show off material they got. Better than Euro1080 at least. CSI miami and highlights from England-France for example.

    I notice it has the grey line along the bottom of the picture just like most of the .ts files from the USA. I wonder if this is why the Euro1080 transmission is 1920 x 1088, the grey line could be due to the extra 8 lines. All of the footage on this Hotbird channel is top quality though.

    Reading the French Site ,this channel has been set up by the HD forum,a coalition of Manufacturers and Broadcasters , to allow HD trials to take place by members of the coalition.
    There ought to be some interesting content in the future, therefore rather than just the current loop.
