The channel that was previously Reserved 3KSD is now loading as "Test Channel" on the Kordia DTT multiplex.

Can't confirm what the audio/video feeds are at the moment, I'll check when I get home.

Anyone heard who might be joining freeview soon?

It appaears to be Trackside which is very interesting considering they originally dropped out of the freeview consortium.

I just tuned to it here. And, yes, it does appear to be Trackside - a horse/dog racing channel for those not familair with it. 

 

More info here: http://www.trackside.co.nz/index.html

interesting.  We'll finally get the horses in 16:9 then?   Both Sky Channel and TVN show all their stuff this way, so would be the natural progression.

currently off Wharite, I can tune it, but is blank (hardly surprising for 11pm on a Sunday) .  Will check again tomorrow.

The more the merrier!

Now we just need a FTA channel getting some decent sport deals (eg rugby, cricket, etc)

Is this intended for freeview satellite distribution as well?

is up now, but only in 4:3, how useless is that Undecided  Like I said, all they source out of Oz is already 16:9, so not that hard really.

there's nothing on it at the moment.  Trackside seem to have concluded their testing.
