Finnish TV channels are transitioning to HD broadcasts from spring 2025 onwards, which is when Finland’s national public service broadcasting company Yle will discontinue broadcasting its TV channels in standard-definition (SD) in both the terrestrial and cable TV networks. After this, Yle TV channels will only be broadcast in high-definition (HD). Viewing HD channels requires a television or set-top box with an HD tuner.

Households receiving TV broadcasts via the cable TV network will also need a television or set-top box with an HD tuner following the transition.
