Having ditched my cable TV services I have been using Freeview more lately (before that I just got them all on my cable box).
I have made a couple of interesting observations on Freeview.
1. Prime isn't in HD but it is on cable TV. I presume that's because Vodafone gets the feed directly from Sky in HD but the Freeview transponder isn't HD?
2. As on the subject, both the Maori Channel and Te Reo are in HD (well according to my TV and the PQ on the right content looks like it's HD) but the audio is AAC.
Are they on a transponder that has sufficient capacity for HD transmission? Also I presume their studio gear is HD also?
Just putting it out there for comments.
