Information on transition to HD

Finnish TV channels are transitioning to HD broadcasts from spring 2025 onwards, which is when Finland’s national public service broadcasting company Yle will discontinue broadcasting its TV channels in standard-definition (SD) in both the terrestrial and cable TV networks. After this, Yle TV channels will only be broadcast in high-definition (HD). Viewing HD channels requires a television or set-top box with an HD tuner.

Households receiving TV broadcasts via the cable TV network will also need a television or set-top box with an HD tuner following the transition.
