Global Winnipeg is pleased to announce it is the first local Winnipeg television station to broadcast in high-definition. With the launch of its new digital, over-the-air transmitter, Global Winnipeg viewers will now be able to catch their favourite Global Television programs – including Glee, Bones, ET Canada and Survivor – in full HD. 

“The move to HD affirms our position as a market leader, providing Winnipeg viewers with the benefits of an over-the-air high definition broadcast signal,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice-President, Content, Shaw Media. “This is the next logical step in providing an enhanced viewing experience with superior audio and video quality.”

Global Winnipeg’s high definition signal will provide a substantial increase in sharpness and clarity, along with a far superior color resolution and exceptional audio clarity over analog and standard definition TV broadcasts. The Global Winnipeg HD signal will be available on the following channels: 

Shaw Cable:  Channel 211
MTS Digital TV: Channel 455
Over the air: Channel 40

In addition to the new HD signal, Global Winnipeg’s current analog over-the-air signal will continue to be available to viewers. Global Winnipeg will broadcast an over-the-air signal in both an analog and a digital format until the summer of 2011, to coincide with the phasing-out of over-the-air analog television signals in major markets across Canada. 

In keeping with Global Television’s network-wide move to high-definition, Winnipeg is the fifth Global Television market to move to HD, following Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Toronto.
