Turner on Tuesday announced that it will launch a high-definition simulcast of TBS on Sept. 1.
TBS original series like My Boys and The Bill Engvall Show are already shot in high-def; older acquisitions (Seinfeld, Friends, etc.) will be upconverted to the 1080i HD format.
“With the launch of TBS in HD, we will bring an outstanding line-up of comedy programming to our viewers in a video format that is on the fast track to becoming the industry and consumer standard,” said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. “We are extremely proud to bring TBS to the HD world.”
Once the feed goes live, all TBS fare––including its coverage of Major League Baseball’s Division Series Playoffs and the National League Championship Series––will be available in high-def. To maintain consistency and avoid the diminished visual experience of pillaring, all commercials on TBS in HD will be presented in the superior format.
Turner launched an HD version of its flagship drama network, TNT, in May 2004.
