Freeview GM defects to TiVo


Article from NBR http://www.nbr.co.nz/article/freeview-gm-defects-tivo-97312


Freeview’s longstanding general manager has walked away from the consortium, just a week after TVNZ handed its exclusive channels to competitor pay TV competitor Sky TV.

Steven Browning, general manager and chief cheerleader for the Freeview consortium announced his resignation today, but told NBR the decision was not made under duress and that there is no bad blood.

“This announcement is about celebrating our success to date and, more importantly, the exciting future that lies ahead of us. Steve presided over the launch and phenomenal growth of Freeview by ensuring it has become recognised as an internationally acclaimed free-to-air digital TV platform,” TVNZ chief executive Rick Friesen says.

Mr Browning had long been pushing for Freeview to have access to the Sky-owned Prime TV, which has refused.
