Outage to UHF / terrestrial transmission from midnight to 5am on MONDAY 10 JULY

 

Kordia will be updating transmitters across the North Island, which would cause a temporary outage to all broadcasts in East AucklandHamiltonWellingtonPalmerston North, Whanganui and Napier early Monday morning.  The work has been scheduled to minimise disruption to viewers and once completed, it will increase broadcast bandwidth nationwide and enable Māori Television to broadcast high definition programming.

Lifting the capacity of the Mediaworks MUX?  

 

Any other mux's getting an upgrade?

Maori TV isn't on the Mediaworks Mux so I'm wondering if their going to light up an additional multiplex. Or are they going to move some channels off the current MaoriTV allocated multiplex.

 

Ditto I'd love to see Prime in HD.

I am not sure on the technical details, however the upgrades mean more services in HD, starting with Maori Television, there's been nothing reported on other channels but who knows :)

Guessing an increase in the bandwidth used to deliver signals to the towers.. upgrading their fibre links? Or upgrading encoders

Based on the DTT UHF Plan linked off

 

 - http://www.qsl.net/zl1vfo/aktvchannels.htm

 

 - https://www.rsm.govt.nz/online-services-resources/pdf-and-documents-library/publications-and-guides/broadcasting/digital-television-channel-usage/table-of-digital-television-channel-useage

 

Those sites don't have the second Kordia managed multiplex so perhaps they are going to light up another MUX for HD channels.

 

The second Kordia Mux in Auckland has been off air for a couple of weeks and just re-appeared with a single place-holder channel.

Maori TV in HD. Seriously what is the point? Do people actually watch this channel?

And even if I do decide to watch, its not like I can understand any of it. Dont know why we bother with these channels. Chinese TV is no different, but at least its not my tax dollars funding it.

Yes people do watch it and it is actually a very good channel, way better than any of the media works efforts. It is excellent that it will be HD.

What a sad attitude to have.

 

There is heaps of great programming on Maori TV, and I say this as a Pakeha who doesn't speak a word of Maori. Find Me a Maori Bride was one of the funniest local comedy series I've ever watched. Programs are mostly in English anyway - perhaps you're confusing it with Te Reo?

 

If you can't bring yourself to watch anything "Maori" then it screens a lot of great movies and documentaries. The selection tends to be very different to those on the major channels too.

It is good that it is going HD. I don't watch much on that channel, but they have decent programming.

 

Duke and Prime would be great next.

Yes, particularly the movies, but also some of the documentaries.

 

And of course Media Take
