ONE HD in Tassie: July 30
Following a "please explain" from a Tassie politician, TDT announces its high-def sports channel from the end of the month.
Tasmanian viewers will finally get ONE HD from Thursday July 30th.
The 24 hour sports channel will screen from 7pm.
The announcement follows negotiations by Tasmanian Digital Television, a joint venture between Macquarie Media and WIN Television.
TDT General Manager, Stephen Giles, said that ONE would be available to television viewers in Tasmania who currently receive TDT’s high definition service.
“Tasmanians certainly love their sport and, from 30 July, ONE will be the home of sport on Tasmania TV,” Mr Giles said.
ONE will broadcast sport, 24 hours a day and will be accessible for all viewers with high definition television sets or set-top boxes.
Viewers in Tasmania have been angered by a delay in the arrival of the channel, which started on TEN in March and to Southern Cross regional viewers on July 2nd. Earlier today Tasmania’s Consumer Affairs Minister Lisa Singh issued the joint venture duo with a “please explain.”
There are no plans for an SD version of ONE on TDT.
