Viewers in south-west WA are about to start seeing new multichannels as work on a Mt Lennard transmitter site nears completion.
GWN7 and WIN Television will add new channels from July 28 in the Greater Bunbury area, completing the following suite:
GWN7, 7TWO and 7mate
WIN, GO! and Gem
TenWest, OneHD and 11
GWN7 / Prime7 Chief Executive Officer Doug Edwards said, “Regional WA viewers will now be able to enjoy the whole digital experience. Put simply – this means more choice of free-to-air television with superior quality picture and sound. With the addition of 7TWO and 7Mate, we are now offering greater choice for our audience”.
“Digital coverage will be progressively rolled out across the South West by December 2011, with the remainder of Regional WA in early 2012.”
WIN Television Manager Legal, Regulatory & Network Affairs Shirley Brown said, “The roll out of the full suite of digital channels has been a long wait for the viewers of regional WA, we are pleased that the wait is nearly over and viewers will receive the same services as viewers in Perth have received for some time.”
The new channels join ABC and SBS digital, already available.
