ZollyMonsta: 78% of Sky, in fact.


That's a pretty good Rupert Murdoch involvement ..

For now TV 9 is not going on Satellite, remains on Freeview HD platform for  now, I think we are close to the announcement of the replacement of Stratos, 

Im not keeping my hopes up as I can't think of any other channel that would be worth to watch go on Freeview.

Now is a good time for media works to take advantage of Freeview, as TVNZ slowly pulls out and goes to Pay TV SKY the better MW can be.

While that sounds all good and well last I heard mediaworks was not looking quite so good in the financials department.

I understand fully on that hiopefully now their new owner TPG"TPG, is working on a backdoor takeover buying debt at a discounted price. If successful, TPG might shut Ironbridge and other second tier debtors out of the company."

And will most likely breakup  Media Works and sell it off it bits to get their investment money back..

You are semi-correct, TVNZ has made a very strong relationship with SKY TV and their move is Pay TV. Dont be surprised if TVNZ U or 1 or 2 are encrypted in the next few years.

To be honest they can do U now. I switched it on last night just to be sure the guide wasnt a wind-up. 'Date my sister' and 'Im hotter than my daugher'.

Im mean seriously, does anyone actually watch this crap ?

My sister-in-law most likely.  She watches all that sort of crap.  I suspect she is the typical NZ TV viewer that these networks aim at..

The press statement has said after January

TV 9 is a yes

Channel North is a no as it is already in Whangerei broadcasting.
