TV9 is off air and will be returning soon 

- its brief absence is to enable the extended coverage of CTV8 to Whangarei, Rotorua, Taupo, Gisborne, Taranaki, Wanganui, Manawatu, Wairarapa, Nelson, Timaru and Invercargill, as well as the launch of a new channel in November;

the broadcaster WTV has indicated that they will continue TV9 broadcast later this year or early next.

I am guessing said channel to launch in November is Al Jazeera English. Yay! Excited!

better than the saturation advertising offered on Channels 1,2, and 3.

Perhaps when it comes back they may understand aspect ratios?
