Alice springs, Katherine and all of NT outside Darwin will be getting a new digital only channel starting from next year onwards, It will be a similar setup to Darwin Digital Television DDT TEN which started in Darwin 2 years ago but ONE HD won't be shown in the area outside the VAST services at first.

The media release makes no mention of ONE. How do you know that GO!, 7TWO and an SD version of ONE will not appear at the exact same time as Imparja and Southern Cross Central go digital and Ten Central appears??

Because knowing SC and Imparja, and the geographical coverage area they're in, they'll want to do it as cheap as possible. They'll more than likely use a single transmitter to broadcast SC, Imparja and Ten Central at first, just to get people off analog. Once analog goes, 2 transmitters become available, and SC and Imparja can then use them to broadcast the full suite of channels.

Pre-2013:

Transmitter 1:
* SC
* Imparja
* Ten Central

Post-2013:

Transmitter 1:
* Ten Central
* One HD

Transmitter 2 (ex-analog SC):
* SC (+HD)
* 7 TWO

Transmitter 3 (ex-analog Imparja):
* Imparja (+HD)
* GO!

I was simply referring to the terristral level, not the VAST service. The services are not the same on the terristral level as on the VAST service, meaning those who receive the service on a terristral level will certainly not get ONE, GO or 7TWO (those multichannels will come later) on the same day as Imparja, SC Central and TEN Central, unlike on the VAST service.
