Any more details about when and where other than "starting in the hawkes bay and west coast"?

IMO it is more logical to start in the areas with freeview HD already, like Auckland and CHCH.

Will they be resolving the awful satellite service before switch off or is rural NZ going to be forced to opt for sky to watch the free channels in something approaching a watchable image?

TV1 didn't do a really good job at reporting it, basically saying people will have to spend $200 on a sat box and $150 on a dish

Didn't mention that FreeviewHD is an option and coverage is being boosted to other areas (finally!)
