MUMBAI: Asianet Digital, the cable TV division of Asianet Satellite Communications in Kerala, has added 13 high-definition channels. With this, the number of HD channels has increased to 30 in its bouquet.

Asianet has packaged the channels in three HD packages such as Gold HD pack, Platinum HD pack, and the premium Emerald HD pack that offers 30 HD channels.

Asianet also offers SD packages in various price points to cater to cross sections of the audience.
