A bit of an update for regional viewers awaiting confirmation of new channels.
WIN now has a “Coming Soon” image on Channels 85 and 86 which indicate WIN HD and 9Life are on the way. It’s unclear how long this will take, but this week Nine also confirmed NBN would be getting both 9HD and Life in “coming months.”
Meanwhile PRIME has advised it currently has no commercial arrangements in place with Seven for 7FLIX.
“The addition of any new channel is technically challenging, takes time and requires substantial capital investment. From a broadcast engineering perspective, regional broadcasters are far more complex businesses than metro operations, covering larger geographic areas with multiple signals that service a large number of local areas across regional Australia,” it told viewers via Facebook.
“We will certainly update viewers if and when this new service becomes available in regional areas.”
