Pity that $even does not afford its mushroom audience with an explanation of their stance with HD in their smallest market nationally Sydney,it looks like blur vision for the Melbourne Cup & Aust Open Tennis.
Biggest con dished out by $even was their excuse that the small audiences in Sydney Brisbane & Perth were denied HD on the primary channel due to HD commitments to the VFL
Well blow me down!
Received this very prompt response from the ABC today.
Good Afternoon Peter,
Thank you for your email.
There are a number of technical, resourcing and audience implications to consider, however the ABC is currently working through its HD plans and hopes to be able to transition its primary channel to high definition Australia wide, before the end of the year.
Unfortunately I don't have more precise information regarding this, however we may have more information in the coming weeks.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the ABC Reception Advice Line, if you have any questions, Mon – Fri on 1300 139 994
