Can the reliable source also pass a message to the producers to reduce the amount of sports news at 1800 hours because we already have ESPN for that

Can We Not Capitalise Every Word ? If Nothing Else It Will Improve Your Typing Speed ;-)

But what do you mean by upgrade ?  More bandwidth for the channel ?  Better content ?

I'd hope since they are in the mood for HD that they will upgrade FOUR to HD in the process :-)

Great, now they can stop with the budget edge enhancement they apply to the studio cameras then.

How about they also figure out how to source the clips they show from sky and other channels in something that doesnt look like its been thru a composite feed and a VHS deck while they are at it?

Pity they don't improve the quality of their news as well instead of the usual local sensationalized stuff like "Bag snatch in South Auckland. We're now crossing to our reporter on the scene"

Can the reliable source confirm actual news will be broadcast, or will it just be cats up trees in Dunedin and Dan Carter's new hat?
