WileECoyote,
You already have ABEW 9A and SBS 9. Coming are VDW 8 (TenWest), VEW 12 (GWN) and WOW 11 (WIN). With all these transmitters you will get all 16 programs.

Your existing antenna will be fine.

Hang on a sec! A government press release?! We all know that government press releases just don't cut it (but only when they disagree with alanh, of course).

WileECoyote,
Senator Conroy is making sure that all Australians will have access to 16 DTV programs regardless of where they are within Australia. As you know Esperance is part of Australia.

I'm not so sure, afterall alanh was confused about Korea being part of north America. Perhaps he's only just realised that Esperance is not in the middle of China. ;)

The Hon. Senator Stephen Conroy ensures a lot of things.

Selected highlights:Sounds like he's a busy man. Somehow, I don't think the words "make sure" or "ensure" mean quite the same thing to him as they do to you or I. Especially that last one, which sounds suspiciously like "If you currently receive some commercial FTA TV, you'll be able to ... er, receive some commercial FTA TV".

Well I must say it was nice being able to watch the F1 on One the other night, and not have to wait for some nice person in the UK to record it for me *ahem*. I had to drop the boost on my booster as the ABC was tripping out which is handy. I might even pull it later and see if I can go without it now. Now to convince the wife that a second tuner and bigger hard disk for the MCE box is a good idea (wish me luck!).
