Negotiations between Tasmanian network TDT and Network TEN for the delivery of ONE HD have caused a delay in launching the channel on July 2nd, in line with Southern Cross.
But the network remains committed to ONE and is hoping to make an announcement shortly.
“We’re expecting to put out a Press Release tomorrow to announce what’s going on,” General Manager Stephen Giles told TV Tonight.
“Certainly we are going ahead with ONE and what I want to make sure is we give an accurate time,” he said.
“TDT is still committed to providing ONE HD. At this stage we are finalising negotiations and we hope to be putting out a Press Release in the next day or so.”
Last month, Southern Cross COO Greg Dodgson told TV Tonight that ONE would launch in Tasmania on July 2nd, but unforseen circumstances have since caused a delay.
There are no immediate plans for an SD broadcast of ONE.
