I'm presuming you don't get any other channels on the Kordia MUX either such as Prime? There is a 99% chance your aerial and/or cabling will be the problem.

Stratos , cue, parliament are not broadcast in the Nelson/Motueka region,   The broadcasters arent willing to pay the extra to Broadcast into this area 


Any more questions give Adrian a ring at Satellite Networks

I didn't realise this area missed out on so much - the Freeview site actually mentions this. It's strange that we now have stupid fragmentation.

Fragmentation and regionalisation have always been a part of freeview dtt. Tv Central, tv 33 for example. Jda got the contract for most of the dtt expansion and can offer a competitive rate for transmission over those smaller areas. It makes the kordia monopoly a bit fairer. Realistically Nelson could now have its own channel locally on dtt affordably. If stratos can meet costs with local advertising to cover Nelson, I'm sure they'll be on the jda mux in short time. Remember that stratos started as triangle tv, an auckland only channel.




don't mess with me.... i'm the hd insider....

I'm in Mapua getting signal from Mt Campbell but do not see some channels. As Prime is missing I'd assumed its due to poor signal where I am, as sbiddle has suggested, because I'd seen it on another set-top-box when I was trial antennea locations.   But that may have been on signals from Nelson.

If your getting some channels there must be a DTT signal there, just need to sort your aerials
