Introducing ONE HD and ONE Digital – well, not really

By on


EXCLUSIVE : Ten will no longer be providing a HD simulcast, with breakaway programming, when its new ONE channel, a 24-hour sports channel for Freeview, comes into launch; as seen in the images above taken by

In the lead up to it, Ten has moved TEN HD from Channel 12, where it has been since it was launched in 2007, to Channel 11, while a new Channel – called TEN SD2 – will take ONE’s SD channel during the lead-up to the new channel.

This move, which will see Ten being the only channel not to have an HD version of its content broadcast on the main channel; would make shows like NCIS, Lie to Me and other shows, which have been broadcast in HD in the channels in the US and around the world, no longer able to be watched with 5.1 surround sound and a higher picture quality.
