  1. Last night, I didn’t watch the BBL match on 7mate on 74 as I headed out to dinner with family and friends but did they have the HD bug plastered on the screen?

  2. This is really a great thing, long over due, but certainly looking forward to the clear HD sports watching. Bring on the AFL up here in Sydney, and thanks to 7 for doing this. Also, this will be so good for the Olympics coming up…

  3. Changeover is from Midday.

    “12:00 pm today in each local market the 7mate HD simulcast commences on channel 74. Tune in to see the “Best Aussie Channel in the World Ever” permanently in HD on Channel 74.”

  4. I noticed some promos today (watching Family Guy from last night) on 7mate advertising 7food on 7flix from 8am.
    They must have a butt load of shows they bought the rights to.

  5. Not on foxtel, IQ2 this morning it isn’t, only the SD def version of 7mate, I have all the other HD channel equlivents, Viceland, Gem etc. Sounds like Foxtel and 7 are either not coming to the party or it is only going to be on IQ3 and 4.

    • If Foxtel carry the HD channel, it’ll be on the iQ2. They’ll need to reach agreement for Foxtel to carry it, plus the technical works for rebroadcasting and integration into the planner on the STU.
