While watching the All Blacks delayed on Prime last night, I saw a commercial announcing that HGTV is coming to the Freeview lineup on Channel 17. Apparently it was announced a couple of weeks ago, and it starts broadcasting on June 27th. Their facebook page has details of most of the shows they'll be screening. I quite like renovation shows (though my preference is for the British ones like Restoration Man) so for me, this is a welcome addition to the range of free content available. Good to see Freeview expanding their offering, and with something that previously needed a geo-unblocker to access.
