MJ tops Google search terms, ONE HD tops AU rising search terms in 2009

By on

Last night, we reported on Yahoo’s top searches; and now, its Google’s turn. Google has brought out its search data and compiled the “fastest rising” searches for this year, and are very different to what Yahoo users were searching. Topping the global scale was, obviously, Michael Jackson; while social networking sites Facebook, Tuenti and Twitter placed second, third and forth respectively. Rounding out the top five was the search term […]

So, what is the future of television?

By on

Digital Television is set to dominate our televisions when 2013 finally comes, when the Government will finally switch off the last analogue television signal in the metropolitan cities – but after the switchover, what will happen next? We seem to have never asked ourselves what will happen in the future of television. Will it become non-existent because of the Internet, or will it still play a potential role for news? […]

Australia has now a new place to watch sports, and it has just started broadcasting. Called One HD, the channel promises to broadcast AFL, Netball and Cricket matches, along with the Commonwealth Games in 2010 and American sports like NASCAR, NBA and the MLB.

Commercial networks “not serious” about the digital revolution

By on

When the clock struck midnight on New Years Day, it didn’t mean the start of a brand new year, but the start of Australia’s own digital television revolution where the commercial channels were permitted to broadcast a single, standard definition multichannel; to complement the main feed and their own high definition feed. However, even though it has been permitted, it doesn’t mean that the commercial channels have to take up […]

Freeview to be launch tonight – 6:29PM

By on

According to a report on What’s On The Tube, all of the major free-to-air television networks (ABC, SBS, Seven, Nine and Ten) would be broadcasting ads about the new “FreeView” initiative that will support the take up of free-to-air digital television. This basically means that it is a “roadblock”, meaning that you can’t escape it – unless you have Foxtel. FreeView is expected to launch with 15 channels, and a […]

Ten HD to dump HD content – moves to sport

By on

According to one Citigroup analyst talking to Smarthouse, the Ten Network has become the laughing stock of the entire television industry after announcing that it would be ditching its HD stream in favour of a 24-hour HD sports network. The new move will see shows like Rush, Neighbours, NCIS and Life no longer having a HD simulcast, and would also displace many of its shows that were shown on the […]

The Battle of HD Multi Channelling…

By on

EDITORIAL: Since the age of digital television, I thought Australia is just way behind. Let’s face it, only the ABC and SBS are allowed to multi channel. But now, I think I might change my mind. Channel Ten and the Seven Network both announced that they will launch their High Definition (HD) multi channels. This comes after the Government lifted multi channelling restrictions. Current laws now state that channels are […]
