Sky News airs special HD side panels during Papal Conclave
Updated on Tuesday 12 March 2013 by @TVNewsroom

With the Papal conclave meeting in a bid to elect the new Pope, Sky News will feature special HD side panels with a live shot of the Sistine chapel chimney.

The colour of the smoke coming from the chimney indicates whether a new Pope has been chosen, black smoke when a decision hasn’t been made and white smoke when the new Pope has been elected.

The live view will be available via Sky News HD side panels, for HD viewers, throughout the hours that the conclave sits.

Additionally the side panels will feature background information on the election of the new Pope as well as profiles of the leading contenders.

HD viewers can view Sky News HD on Sky channel 501.
