Not sure how longs its been there but Kordia seem to be broadcasting a hidden channel in Dunedin at the moment (and I assume elsewhere)

 


This is currently showing a live stream of the Accelerate World Conference https://twitter.com/WorldAccelerate

 

 

 

We couldn't tune this in on a Sony TV as it seemed to ignore the channel but a chinese DVB-T box picked this up fine.

 

Freq: 36 (Kordia)
Video ID: 550, Audio ID: 600

Is it a regular DVB-T channel?, what's it bit rate?

 

Kordia have been playing with DVB-T2 broadcasts (4K) - so your cheap box might be a T2 compliant device, which is why it can see it....

It came up and reported you can pay to broadcast your event on this channel so it appears its part of Kordia Live

Doesn't seem great when it could not be tuned in correctly

We tried both a Panasonic and Sony tv
Both didn’t list the channel at all when doing a manual scan of UHF46, just all the other channels on the frequency

skewt: Doesn't seem great when it could not be tuned in correctly

 

I suspect the fact that you couldn't tune it with the Sony equipment is because Kordia are intentionally hiding the channel from Freeview-compatible equipment. After all, the channel is only intended to be a pop-up channel, not a full-time broadcast channel.

 

 

If a customer pays to broadcast an event on the channel and that customer wants the broadcast to be exposed to the public, I suppose Kordia would do whatever is necessary to "un-hide" the channel for the duration of the event. After the event it would go back to how it is now.

It doesn't have an LCN (or an SDT entry) at present. From a technical perspective, all it has is the bare minimum (PAT entry, PMT, video and audio stream) for advanced hardware/software to find and/or play it.

ANglEAUT: My HD HomeRun picks up the channel

 

Interesting that you get a channel name and number. Those details definitely aren't available here in the Manawatu.

Mine too, but it doesn't show up in tvheadend (which otherwise picks up bloody everything). It's certainly well hidden...
