Virgin Media has added Eurosport HD to its channel line up.

The UK cable operator said the deal with Eurosport marked the first of several new HD channels due to launch over the coming months. The channel will take Virgin Media’s HD channel count to eight when it launches in April. It will join BBC HD and 4HD, both of which are available to all subscribers, along with ESPN HD, Nat Geo HD, MTVNHD, FX HD and Living HD, which are available at no extra charge to Virgin Media’s XL TV subscribers.

Eurosport HD is a simulcast version of Eurosport and offers a range of sports in high-definition, including the Tour de France, French Open tennis, all European rounds of World Superbikes, the World Touring Car Championships and Athletics European Championships as well as selected tournaments from the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and winter sports.
