CUE started on Freeview last week sometime.  I hadn't seen it mentioned on here so thought I would say something.

The press release on Freeview mentions "co-operation" with Sky whatever that means.  I thought that it had been switched over to Freeview from Sky and Sky were just taking the freeview transmission, but that doesn't seem to be the case as it is out of sync when switching between the 2 on my TV.

Sky have turned off their transmission of CUE and simply point their STBs at the freeview transmission.

Sky currently carry the freeview versions of MaoriTV, CUE, Stratos and Parliament.

The versions of TV One, TV 2, TV 3 and C4 are their own broadcasts.

Thanks for that.  What about RNZ national/Concert, have they been switched over?
