Despite going live on some other digital TV platforms in Europe, CNN International HD has thus far not been available in the UK and Ireland. Further details about the tests and any official launch are unknown at this stage.
It's been around three years since the first CNN International HD broadcasts appeared in other parts of the world. Initially, only programmes from the US version were shown in HD, before a big switchover in June 2013, which saw the channel also switch to widescreen format, even on the standard definition versions of the channel.
