I would email Australia Network, it is run by the ABC. I would ask the question as to why they cannot transmit all their programs in widescreen SD.
As far as HD the ABC only transmits terrestrially 1280 x 720 x 50p on ABC24 which is basically a news channel. Little of their programming is an HD source.
SBSHD terestrially is 1280 x 1080 x 25i. They have very little HD original.
The ownership of Australia Network was between Sky and ABC became a political bun fight. The ABC now owns Australia TV "permanently".
Push the ABC as hard as you can to atleast get widescreen SD. If you want HD you have to convince them to use DVB-S2 modulation and the viewers will need HD receivers for all programs.
The ABC is transmitting internal satellite TV using DVB-S2 for VAST viewers,
