HD implies that the TX format is HD, i.e., 720p in this case, not that the native format of the programs is HD. TVNZ have claimed for months that it could be another year before they have the ability or will to playout significant HD content.

Ah ok. You are talking about delivering significant hd content rather than the ability to deliver hd content via the sky platform...

Anyone know what transponder these will be on?

There's nothing visible on either of the two existing HD transponders at the moment.

If they're going live in June something should be up for testing soon...

Sorry, joined this thread quite late.  Please can someone elaborate on this:


eXDee: TV1 - HD from july

TV2 - HD from july

TV3 - HD where available (same as freeview)

Sky Movies 1 - Many are HD

Sky Movies Greats - Many are HD

Sky Sport 1 - Rugby is HD if in Aus or NZ, dont think SA sends a HD feed. Cricket is in HD. Not sure about others.

Sky Sport 2 - As above



posted at the start.  What's meant by the 'where available'  for TV3?  I would have thought location was irrelevant.


Edit 22/05 13:50  I should add, that despite the US flag shown in my 'profile' on the left, I am in NZ.  (Can someone tell me how to change, can't find it in profile options)

Still no sign. Expect to see something from about 7 days before launch.

1) Where the program is provided to TV3 by the producer in HD they will screen in HD, if it is provided in HD, they can't so won't.

2) Ignore it, you can't change it, the IP lookup service that Geekzone uses gets out of date sometimes.
