freeview? the new package of current free-to-air channels
I noticed following advertise on TV the other night. It says Freeview is coming in 2009.
Exactly what is Freeview? According to the reports, there will be 15 channels from the free-to-air (FTA) networks, including five High Definition (HD) and 10 Standard Definition (SD) channels. I don't see a huge difference between the current digital TV in Australia (free-to-air) and the upcoming Freeview.
Gizmodo Australia sums up nicely, “Freeview is a UK branding exercise that covers free-to-air digital television. It essentially offers all the FTA networks digital TV offerings under one easy to remember brand name, essentially so that it can compete better with pay TV.”
If you haven't upgraded your TV or purchased a set-top box to receive digital signal, here's a bad news for you - the analogue transmission will be switched off in 2013 (pushed back from 2008). Well, stay tuned for the Freeview.
