Hope they sort out their content problems before worrying about the low resolution and bitrates.

I think it's so funny when people who have no understanding of what they're writing about write press releases.

Sttarus currently have nationwide coverage "across NZ" via Freeview DVB-S.

The launch on DVB-T will mean those without DVB-S will be able to pick the signal up but it isn't nationwide!

freeview article: Stratos, which has been screening on DHT (satellite services) for the past three years, can already be seen throughout the country via Freeview and Sky Digital. For viewers that has meant having a satellite dish and receiver.

DTT is broadcast across the country from point-to-point via broadcast towers and can be picked up by 80% of homes through domestic antennas.


Just sayin...

This "announcement" was already in our Freeview Q&A I posted earlier this month (Dec 2010) - if you read the answers then you already knew about Stratos.

Every few months we do a Freeview Q&A.
