The equipment has been upgraded so it's ready for changes, an announcement will be made when it is time, as people will need to reseries link content on affected channels.

Maybe Bravo in the US..

 

Nah, Bravo NZ says it is in 1080i. Ca someone in Auckland confirm if it is HD up there on Freeview|HD?

Seems like you guys are right. I probably need my eyes checked. its not HD over terrestrial freeview.

 

Duke on the other hand seems better, but I can't confirm if its in HD or not via Tivo. The Duke live stream is a far better quality than terrestrial freeview, I wonder if the livestream is in HD? My Kodi is reporting a stream of 1280x720 px, 25FPS.

 

I see somebody has updated the above Wiki page :-)

TiVo receives Freeview Terrestrial transmissions so Duke is obviously not HD. It couldn't be in HD if you wanted it to be as the muxes have a finite bandwidth of 26 Mbps, i.e., only allows TVNZ1 and TVNZ2 in HD

It seems short sighted that broadcasters are restricted in that way when other countries using similar Freeview models have lots of HD channels available over the air.

Do you have an example? In Australia, ABC have 1 out of 5 channels in HD, SBS 2/6, Seven 1/6, Nine 1/6, Ten 1/6. That's a total of 6 out of 29, which is only slightly better than New Zealand (3 out of 25).

I'm sure I read it on Geekzone somewhere but wasn't this thread which I've just skim read though did see your earlier comment re Australia's 6 out of 29 HD channels.  I also follow a few TiVo and DishTV threads which at one point or another each bang the HD drum.

It was earlier in this thread. https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=83&topicid=216658&page_no=3#1814470 . You made the claim "other countries using similar Freeview models have lots of HD channels available over the air", and I've seen no evidence to back this up, but then only have limited knowledge in this area. Even Australia could be argued as not been of a similar Freeview model since each network owns their own frequency, where as in NZ a single UHF frequency can be shared between broadcasters.
