Choice TV is now broadcasting out of their Broadcast Suite, The problems with pre-launch quality was due to TVNZ's uplink, So there should no longer be any problems with quality now, Enjoy!

I see reading on line today that they won't broadcast in HD because it costs too much for the HD programming. A bit backwards in this day and age I think..

Is it just me, but apart from sounding dull, does the  person doing the voiceover on N2K speak too fast?

because JDA are pathetic.  Choice TV are on to it and have spoken to JDA a few times.  Once again JDA screwed up with Cave hill transmission.   It;s not you, its not your reception or anything it is bleep bleep bleep JDA

been watching it and so far like it but picture quality could be better.  I actually get a better picture with my satllite ultraplus receiver, but I am not complaining as it has just started and will improve as they continue fine tuning

Bri4n if you have any problems with other channels, sound dropping out, picture distortion contact the channels, we're trying to get JDA to fix the ongoing problems at cave hill but until the channels know what is going on and the scale of it JDA are getting away with providing the region with a crap service

Give these guys a break fellas. Its a new station, theres gonna be teething problems. If its the same or worse in a months time then yeh, criticise to your hearts content! I'm just grateful for the extra channel. Lets just be thankful we all have another option on the box :)

Looked fine on my 4:3 CRT, it was sharp and was as good as 1, 2, 3. It was good to see no adverts, but I suppose that as it becomes popular, it will get adverts. Some reasonable content too, it was better than what was on the other channels

Dom Harvey, The Edge Morning Show. If you want to listen to him on radio he is on from 5am-10am weekdays, He speaks too fast? doesn't sound like Dom though when on air, haha oh well

Not yet it doesn't look like. I imagine in order to have ads, they would need advertisers, which need to know viewership numbers. It is a chicken and egg thing.

I have a sinking feeling about the very large logos in the top left corner for Mondo in some of the travel programmes - perhaps that is the advertisement.
