ERT HD (Greek: ΕΡΤ HD) is a high-definition television channel by ERT, the public broadcaster of Greece. It is the first high-definition television channel in Greece and started broadcasting on 27 April 2011 in several large cities such as Athens, Thessaloniki and Alexandroupoli.[1] ERT HD broadcast such important international events as the Olympic Games, the UEFA European Championship and the Eurovision Song Contest.

It broadcast in DVB-T/MPEG-4 format, at 1080i resolution. All these programs also broadcast by ERT's standard-definition (576i) channels.

Lawsuit[edit]

The private Greek television channel Skai filed a lawsuit against ERT in 2011 for what it claimed was an illegal monopoly on high-definition programming by the public broadcaster. In its lawsuit, Skai claimed that ERT was in violation of European Union regulations regarding competition.[2]
