I agree with your post.. Just wanted to add that EIT (event information table) is part of the DVB standard and is a "standard" as such.

1080p:
Forgive me if I do not fully understand the situation but I am new to Freeview and its technicalities.

I see several questions regarding Freeview's choice of EPG software and implementation and am puzzled. Is MHEG-5 not an internationally recognised and standardised format?

My apologies for quoting Wikipedia but ... "MHEG-5 is a cost-effective, licence-free, efficient, public standard interactive TV middleware...".

This seems to say to me that this standard is open and able to be supported by anyone who choses to do so. I am actually proud that Freeview has chosen to use this standard rather than EIT which I am assuming is not formally standardised (I can't find it anywhere).

Arguments that various consumer products do not support MHEG-5 seem to have nothing to do with Freeview in my opinion and repeated questions on this subject seem unnecessary.

I would suggest lobbying Sony or Microsoft to support MHEG-5 rather than try and force Freeview to simply copy what other broadcasters are doing.

As for those with open source solutions; is this not what open source is famous for? Surely with enough demand someone will be able to hack together some MHEG-5 support and you'll probably be able to make better use of it than those using the standard set tops ;)

/rant

My question:

Is it technologically feasible to provide 5.1 audio on channels with AAC audio encoding? If so, have any of the content providers shown any interest or have you tested this at all?


As sbiddle pointed out EIT is part of the DVB standard - most broadcasters (100+) in the world who use DVB broadcasting use EIT to distribute the EPG.  This compares to the current roughly 5 countries (or more specifically broadcasters) who use MHEG, or 4 and a little bit if you take a real look at what Aussie are doing (which is adopting a standard without actually adopting it)...  Calling it an international standard is like saying Rugby League is THE world game...

Why should the international electronics community support a narrow minded marketing decision made by some out of touch techno boffins working for Freeview/Kordia???  Shouldn't New Zealand, especially government funded organisations take some responsibility for not isolating us from the international community by adopting standards with tiny international uptakes??? 

How many Freeview MHEG PVR's are on the market???  Is three a fair representation of the worldwide PVR market???  Are any of the major electronics manufactures represented???  Either Microsoft, Sony, Panasonic, Tivo, Samsung etc etc are missing the boat, or they understand something you clearly dont.

We are a market of 4 million people.  Half of those households have Sky, which puts them out of the equation, so the true and real market for Freeview products isn't that big, especially once you add other socio economic factors.  Not a real attractive situation for the big guys to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars supporting a solution that can't be sold anywhere else in the world.

How does an MEHG as an interactive "STANDARD" with no return path (ie its all one way traffic) offer consumers anything in 2010, and beyond, especially in world that is being driven by rich, two way, interactive content on via the internet already?  Where are all these magical "red button", and interactive services???  Quite a few guys on here keep harping on about them - but the rest of use keep waiting... tick tock tick tock... Push the Red Button - go on, I dare ya!!!

What has MHEG in NZ delivered in comparison to the rich interactive services being delivered by other services providers in NZ, such as Apple, Microsoft via Xbox Live.  Let me answer that quickly - NOTHING!

All Freeview has done since its launch is deliver a reduction in services, wasting a considerable amount of taxpayer money in the process.  For example TVNZ Dolby Digital, no additional channels of any substance, and recent events indicate that TVNZ has in fact given up on the platform altogether for the sake of a big steaming hot cup of well needed commerical reality.

The people on here asking questions about EIT are doing so because they are well informed, and would like "choice".  You will find most don't care two flying quacks about MHEG and what it can/cannot do.  Most wouldn't care if Freeview broadcast it for the next 100 years, they simply want the ability to choose.  Currently Freeview prevent this choice, by not delivering a complete 7 day guide over EIT.  Thats all its really about...

Just as a quick answer to those asking for expanded coverage upon launch Freeview|HD was available to 75% of the population with planned expansion to 87%. I too would love to know what the latest is regarding that expansion.

Those expansion plans including transmitter sites and transmitter frequencies are no secret and are readily available from the MED or the Freeview Wikipedia entry. There certainly are no plans to expand Freeview|HD coverage outside any of these areas, those areas will be served by Freeview Satellite.

Thanks, there is plans according to the wiki page for one transmitter in my area but it says TBC, when are we going to get confirmation?

In that case, why does Invercargill (population - 50,000) get a transmitter but not South Canterbury (poplulation - 54,000)?

Freeview currently has a channel dedicated to running HD demos. As I am sure everyone agrees that no one watches this for any length of time and it appears to be a great waste of bandwidth with obviously no return for freeview; would it be possible to offer this space to an operator such as BBC World or Aljazeera that would actual attract a greater audience to freeview?

Last time we asked Freeview this question we were told that it was a trade only channel  hence no AC3 audio..

You have have noticed that it said "Southland" next to Hedgehope, not Invercargill, Hedgehope provides services to places other than Invercargill as well.

Another +1 for the EIT question. Very well said RustyGonad. I hate to think how many behind the scenes deals are done between Freeview and various groups to fleece the taxpayer and leave us with an inflexible broken TV service.


Two questions:
1. Why not broadcast EIT and MHEG and allow people to use what they want? Is it because there is no real benefit to MHEG (except potentially advertising), or because of some deal with a manufacturer?

2. Zinwell continues to use copyrighted GPL software (busybox and Linux) without complying with the licence. It would not be hard for them to do. Do you really feel you can ignore the unethical business practices of one of your largest partners? You surely have some moral, if not legal, responsibility for knowingly allowing them to practise this way, as well as broadcasting their copyrighted firmware through your service.

Also this may of been asked in the past but is there any plans for JuiceTV to be broadcast on freeview? I guessing the only reason they dont at the moment is a cost thing?

And folks, here are the answers... Feel free to discuss on this new material!


Q: TVNZ CEO made a comment that one reason for putting the new Heartland Channel on Sky is because there is no room left on Freeview (I assume he means the TVNZ mux is full), how much room is left for additional channels with current capacity?

Freeview – That’s correct, TVNZ has very little capacity left on its own DTT and Satellite muxes. However, there is still capacity on TVWorks and Kordia muxes (e.g. the Freeview|HD demo channel is spare capacity). It does depend on whether new offerings are SD or HD as to how many new services can be added. For example, we would hope that Prime, C4 and Maori Televison will go HD in the future. It’s logical therefore, that some capacity needs to be reserved for these services. For DTT the current MED proposal (Goto MED Digital Futures website for more information) allows for a further seven DTT muxes(sets). Having said that, Sky has rights to four of those and as yet no public plans on what it is going to use that capacity for, the Racing board have rights to one set and the allocation of the other two sets is still to be determined. For DTH any further capacity on the same polarity as the current Freeview services, is held by Sky so the potential for expansion on DTH for HD / 3D services is currently not possible.

Q: Freeview has a TV3 Plus one channel that shows TV3 one hour behind. It’s a great idea for people without PVRs as it means I can catch a show I've just missed or watch one that clashes with another one.
Are there any plans to have this for other channels (1, 2, 4 and Prime)? Are there any plans to extend this to 'Plus two' or 'Plus three' channels as well?

What are the technical, political and economic road blocks to extending the 'plus' channels?

Freeview – Yes that’s a question the broadcasters will be exploring. In the UK there is a suite of +1 channels. However, for NZ broadcasters the issues of capacity and cost of transmission versus the additional revenue they would receive to cover these costs need to be considered before launching any new channels.

Q: MHEG-5 adoption hasn't taken off as quickly as most of us would have liked, with products such as EyeTV and Windows Media Centre providing limited, broken, or no support for it. Many of us have resorted to tools that scrape data from websites and/or MPEG streams, which then mangles it in to one of many formats.

Will Freeview look at either extending the time reach of the DVB native EPG data, or providing native listings in XMLTV / MXF format ready for use with our software media centres?

I accept that we aren't buying an official Freeview product and have no reason to expect support for it. But the flexibility of how, when and on what screen a person wants to watch is a major advantage Freeview has over Sky. A few times I've had to explain how I watch Freeview on my Xbox 360 and iPhone; neither of which is difficult to set up, except for the EPG.

Freeview –The main reason the broadcasters went with 2 different solutions is that that there were about 20,000 existing FTA satellite boxes in the market using the EIT. So a lot of viewers would have been affected with the launch of the new Freeview satellite platform if it had been a Mheg only solution. For DTT there was no legacy platform so the broadcasters chose the Mheg only solution as that was the most bandwidth efficient and therefore, over time, will save them significant costs in transmission.  A separate EIT schedule uses more bandwidth so using the Mheg data stream is far more cost effective in the long term.  More bandwidth would mean broadcasters would have to pay more in transmission fees to Kordia or downgrade the signal quality for their broadcasts. The issue of increasing bandwidth for the EIT schedule is also now becoming an issue for the broadcasters on the satellite platform as more services are added which increases the bandwidth requirements for the EIT schedule but it does not substantially increase the Mheg data requirements. . 

Q: For users outside of range of Freeview|HD is there any current plan for expanding the availability of this service and if so what areas are you looking at expanding it to?

Freeview – We would love to see Freeview|HD® available in all major provincial centres. What we can say is that we have asked both the broadcasters and the Government to support the expansion of Freeview|HD®   to all major provincial centres in the near future. At this stage there is no decision on when or if this will happen as the transmission cost to the broadcasters will increase so there has to be an economic benefit to their business in doing so. And clearly there must be benefits to the Government if they are to support this as well.

Q: Is there any chance in the future that you will lift the restrictions on transfering content from PVR's to a PC?    
        
Freeview – Yes definitely. We are working on a system to allow managed copies of HD content over the home network and to blu-ray disk. We hope to be able to announce this shortly. Also, we are aware of some new devices to be released that will include DLNA for streaming content.

Also when is interactive tv (MHEG 5 content) and Digi Text being planned for launch?  

Freeview – It’s the broadcasters decision when and what interactive applications, like digi txt, interactive advertising, audio description, remote booking, catch up TV via IP etc  they develop. We would expect the broadcasters to develop these applications when the number of Freeview viewers reaches a level where the investment in these applications is justified by the additional revenue they generate for the broadcasters. So we’re not sure when but these developments will definitely come as the platform continues to increase its household penetration in New Zealand.

Q: Any timeline on when HD will be available on the satellite feeds??

Freeview - It is unlikely that HD content will be delivered via the Freeview satellite service in the near future for two reasons. Firstly, there isn’t enough capacity available to FTA channels on satellite (see answer above) and, secondly, the cost of transmitting is currently about three times what it is for a standard definition channel. The broadcasters are unlikely to be able to afford that until such time as improvements in technology makes transmission more cost effective for them. A change to HD would also mean a change in Hardware for all satellite homes.

Q: Does Freeview take the same stance as sky on this issue and see programming guides in the same light (copyright)?

Freeview – Freeview doesn’t own the rights to the listings, the broadcasters do so it’s a decision for them to make

Q: When will we see AC-3 audio on TV1, TV2?

Freeview – We are still waiting to hear from TVNZ about a launch date.

Q: When are we likely to see something replace the "HD Demo" channel other than the demo loop repeated over and over 24 hours a day?

Freeview – We would very much like to see Prime go HD on Freeview so hopefully it won’t be there for too much longer as I’m sure Kordia would also like to sell the space to Sky for Prime in HD or for any other broadcaster to add another service.  In saying that the Freeview |HD ® demo channel is still being used very successfully by retailers to demonstrate the quality of picture you get with Freeview|HD®   in store to their customers.  This has been important for them as all the current HD shows are shown after 6:00PM, when most stores are closed. So it works very well as a selling tool.

Q: Why is there much security on the STB (HDCP, low res component out, restrictions on copying to USB etc.) when the signal is transmitted over the air un-encrypted anyway? Any DVB-S or DVB-T adapter and software can capture it anyway.

Freeview - The security is for HD content and is a requirement from the studio’s who supply the HD content to the broadcasters. So we are complying with of the legal requirements that the content owners make on the Free to FTA) broadcasters to ensure that FTA HD content is restricted to the content producers requirements’. New Zealand is one of a few countries to offer premium HD content on a free-to-air broadcast. Without these restrictions it would not be possible to broadcast Free to air.

Q: Freeview has chosen not to broadcast EIT on the DVB-T network. As an organisation which receives taxpayer funding, why does Freeview continue to support anti-competitive and innovation stifling practice?

Freeview – Please see the previous answers on the EIT.

Q: None of the proposed innovations which were supposed to appear through the use of MHEG have occurred; some 3 years after Freeview went live. MHEG continues to suffer from poor uptake internationally, and New Zealand's decision to customise to the NZ profile further limits the ability of users to develop a working solution. The MHEG EPG is severely lacking in performance, and functionality of other solutions such as either Sony's Play TV or Windows Media Centre.

Freeview – The innovations will come as the number of households, therefore viewers, and increases and therefore the revenue gained for these developments gives the return necessary for broadcasters to develop these applications. The MHEG-5 standard is now being used in the UK for Freesat and for the roll out of DVB-T2 for Freeview; it’s also been adopted in Australia and throughout south East Asia, Ireland and South Africa. So as a standard Mheg continues to grow globally.  The latest MHEG-5 innovation is the use of the Mheg interaction channel which allows the delivery of OTT (over the top) content direct to the TV. Here is an example of this being used by Freesat in the UK BBC iPlayer on Freesat . We hope that the New Zealand’s Freeview broadcasters will look to develop an application like this in the next few years, when the number of installed, enabled devices, reaches a level that justifies the expense of development.

Q: Why Freeview does continues to ignore the requirements of hundreds/thousands of users and refuse to broadcast a full 7 day EIT guide over the DVB-T service, using the internationally accepted standard? One of the Freeview certified boxes also needed changes made to the now/next/bunch of dots/ EIT streams in order to function correctly - which further illustrate the shortcomings of MHEG.

Freeview – See above re EIT. One of the benefits of using an open standard like Mheg-5, across a large number of products is that it allows manufacturers to broadcast over the air software upgrades to their products. For example to fix faults, as in the example you give, add new functionality and for the rechanneling needed for the spectrum reallocation after DSO (digital switch over). The rechanneling for DSO  is a very good example of the benefit to Freeview viewers of having a common standard across products as they won’t have to retune their Freeview|HD® receivers; the changes will be signalled to all approved products and the receiver retuned automatically.

Q: This decision is even more puzzling given the adoption of EIT on the DVB-S network - which in effect negates any possible content provider driven issues, such as content protection etc.

By failing to broadcast the internationally accepted EIT standard Freeview are severely limiting consumer choice, and preventing devices such as Microsoft's Windows Media Centre, and Sony's Play TV from operating as intended. This in turn places significant additional cost on consumers to customise software solutions in order to allow these devices to function as intended.

Freeview – See above answers re EIT. Freeview continues to work with both Microsoft and Sony PlayStation to find the best solution for their customers. We use open standards and as with all manufacturers, they have been supplied the specification and are working through that. We assume they have their own reasons for choosing to not yet develop a solution, as other manufacturers have done, as they prioritise their work around the world and their own ambitions for content delivery.

Q: Does Freeview have a stance on the refusal of Prime and Maori TV to provide EPG data to TIVO?

Freeview – No. Each broadcaster owns their own listings data so this decision is entirely up to the individual broadcasters.

Q: Why there is no official satellite based PVR released?

Freeview – the specification has been released to manufacturers and there are 2 manufacturers keen to launch product this year. They hope to have these in the market by Q3 this year. 

Q: TV3 broadcasts various HD programs in 5.1 audio but viewing those programs on TV3+1 only results in stereo audio. Is there any plans to update TV3+1 (along with TV 1 & 2 as asked previously) to 5.1 audio on HD programs?

Freeview –  We will get an update from TVworks but  TV3+1 is currently only an SD service and it is up to the individual broadcaster as to what the audio they choose to broadcast

Q: TIVO has the capability to plug an external USB drive in to expand the storage. Is this capability likely to be added to Freeview PVRs like the MagicTV?  If so, would the external USB drive be able to be removed from one Freeview device and moved to a second Freeview device to view the content on another Freeview approved PVR?

Freeview - We are about to release our updated Freeview|HD® specs which include a content management system that will allow broadcasters to enable exactly that. Some existing models will be updated and it will be mandatory for 2011 models. 

Q: Do channel providers (e.g. TVNZ, Mediaworks) have any outstanding agreements to launch more channels on either of the Freeview platforms (and if so, what are the launch timeframes specified by the agreements)?

Freeview – No they don’t but as more households use Freeview for their television viewing, then the business model for free-to-air channels to launch becomes more attractive (i.e.  They can charge more for advertising because more people are watching the advertising). Broadcast television is heavily weighted towards a fixed cost of transmission, play out and content cost regardless of how many people are watching. So the more people watching, the more they can charge advertisers therefore the more they are able to afford the fixed costs required in having a channel on Freeview.

Q: Do channel providers get any sort of kick-backs (based on added value for the Freeview platform) for launching new channels?

Freeview – No.  Freeview is an open platform and a not-for-profit organisation so we charge channels a nominal fee and manage the platform for them. These charges are available on our website. This rate card is publically available for any broadcaster who wishes to be part of the platform.

Q: Does Freeview have any means of incentivising quality (i.e. 1080i/720p hi-def, AC3 multi-channel audio, subtitles) over quantity from channel providers in either channel offerings or programming content?

Freeview - As we are an open platform, it’s entirely up to the broadcasters.

Q: The quality reduction of the TV One feed provided via satellite (due to regionalisation) was unpopular with many in the Geekzone community. Does Freeview have a position on this move and are their any minimum standards for "real" bitrates for channels?

Freeview – As with content we have no control over the bitrates that broadcasters choose for their transmission. However, we will always strive to ensure broadcasts are of a high quality. After TVNZ added their regional channels there was a noticeable degradation in picture quality so we worked closely with TVNZ to improve that quality.

Q: Is it technologically feasible to provide 5.1 audio on channels with AAC audio encoding? If so, have any of the content providers shown any interest or have you tested this at all?

Freeview – There is a new standard for multiple channel audio using the AAC audio codec – however not many A/V amps support it – therefore  Broadcasters on the Freeview platform need to use AC3 Dolby Digital encoding for 5.1 audio.

Q: Why does Invercargill (population - 50,000) get a transmitter but not South Canterbury (population - 54,000)?

Freeview – At the moment neither Invercargill nor south Canterbury have Freeview|HD® transmission. As Freeview neither provide transmission services nor is a broadcaster that pays for transmission we do not decide which areas are covered. We are encouraging the broadcasters, transmission providers and the Government to extend the Freeview|HD® coverage to at least all major provincial centres. We would hope there is a positive decision on this in the future.

Q: Freeview currently has a channel dedicated to running HD demos. As I am sure everyone agrees that no one watches this for any length of time and it appears to be a great waste of bandwidth with obviously no return for Freeview; would it be possible to offer this space to an operator such as BBC World or Aljazeera that would actual attract a greater audience to Freeview?
Freeview – Please see previous answer on this.

Q: Zinwell continues to use copyrighted GPL software (busybox and Linux) without complying with the licence. It would not be hard for them to do. Do you really feel you can ignore the unethical business practices of one of your largest partners? You surely have some moral, if not legal, responsibility for knowingly allowing them to practise this way, as well as broadcasting their copyrighted firmware through your service.

Freeview – We will follow up with Zinwell but it’s the responsibility of the software owner to enforce any licensing breeches with their products as we do with our standards.

Q: This may have been asked in the past but are there any plans for JuiceTV to be broadcast on Freeview?

Freeview – We would very much like to have Juice join the platform but unlike Pay TV we are an open access platform, anyone can join and  we don’t buy channels so that’s a question for Juice TV.
