Muchmusic HD, a high definition version of the English language digital specialty channel, will launch on June 1st.

On launch date, the Bell Media owned station will only be available on Bell's Direct-to-Home satellite television service and its Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) service. To-date, no other Canadian cable or satellite distributor has picked up the station.

"The launch of MuchHD is long overdue" said Bell Media's Rick Brace.

Muchmusic HD will be in free preview from June 1 to August 31 on Bell Fibe channel 1570 and Bell Satellite channel 1670.
