The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) may raise the number of high-definition (HD) channels covered under digital TV licences to be given this year. 

It already plans to issue four digital TV licences for HD channels, but there is high demand from existing free stations wanting to broadcast in HD for public service purposes.

Thai PBS, Channel 5 and the National Broadcasting Services of Thailand (NBT) have asked the regulator to increase the number of HD channels allowed, said Col Natee Sukonrat, chairman of the NBTC's broadcasting committee.
