MUTV goes HD

Manchester United's new beginning will coincide with a new era for MUTV this summer as it becomes the first club channel in the UK to broadcast in HD.

This exciting upgrade, effective from July, means fans will be able to watch the Reds' live pre-season games in stunning high definition for the very first time, as new manager Louis van Gaal takes the team to the United States on Tour 2014, presented by Aon.

The tour fixtures confirmed so far are as follows (UK/Ireland times in brackets):
23 July, 19:30 (24 July, 03:30) - LA Galaxy, Pasadena
26 July, 14:10 (26 July, 21:10) - AS Roma, Denver
29 July, 19:00 (30 July, 00:00) - Inter Milan, Washington DC
2 August, 16:05 (2 August, 21:05) - Real Madrid, Ann Arbor

Live coverage will continue into the new 2014/15 season as MUTV shows United's Under-21s and Under-18s in HD, giving fans the chance to spot the players who might follow Adnan Januzaj, James Wilson and Tom Lawrence into the first team.

There's much more to MUTV than match action however. Broadcasting in HD will also bring the very best out of the channel's superb documentaries including When The Floodlights Fade and popular weekly flagships like The Paddy Crerand Show. With all of the above plus great new programmes to look out for, all delivered in high definition, there's never been a better time to join MUTV.
