WIN GOLD set to launch on Channel 84
The WIN Network Australia is set to launch a new free to air channel WIN GOLD on Channel 84 from
May 1 for regional Australia.
WIN GOLD will feature programs across a range of categories from home shopping to education,
lifestyle and community programming.
“This unique channel is a further expansion of WIN’s sizeable Australian broadcast footprint and it
reaffirms our position as Australia’s largest television network. WIN GOLD adds to the network’s
viewer offer providing a point of difference and choice for viewers in regional areas,’ said Andrew
Lancaster, Chief Executive Officer, WIN Corporation.
WIN GOLD will be on Channel 84 across the WIN Network in regional Australia. For viewers wishing to
add the new channel it can be as simple as rescanning/updating their TV or set top box or referring to
the instruction manual.
“WIN GOLD is a further demonstration of the flexibility and opportunity digital television gives to
Australians. The WIN Network will continue to look for further opportunities to utilise new technologies
in meeting our viewers’ needs,” Mr Lancaster concluded.
Viewers with questions about Digital TV should refer to the digitalready.gov.au website.
"Meeting our viewers needs" indeed...I wonder if that includes removal of the God awful solidmarks on GEM and GO! I don't know whose need they're meeting, but it certainly ain't the viewers!
With a name like WIN GOLD, I thought for a fleeting momenty we might be treated to reruns of the Crawfords back catalogue of programs! I'd love to see repeats of 'Bluey'!
