pjamieson: What has happened to the Queen's English and the good old NZBC days?  I guess they have decided the NZ public are stupid and they have to dumb everything down?

Probably less to do with their perception of the NZ public's intellect and more to do with the fact that we don't live in the Queen's England.

Now if we can only get TVNZ to ditch the 4 regional versions of TV One on the satellite & restore the Bitrates of TV One & TV 2 back to how they were before they started 'testing'

I've started a Facebook group to try and draw attention to the Satellite picture quality issues on Freeview.

'We want DVD quality back on Freeview (NZ) - Quality not Quantity'

Or just go on Facebook and do a search for - Freeview nz

It would be great if any Facebook users would join it and share the link to all their friends.

I’ve add some sample pictures & videos showing the problem that other concerned people have posted on forums & will update it with any news as I get it.
