"We have taken full advantage of our capabilities to be the first to launch NBN services across all technologies including fibre, satellite and wireless as well as multicast IPTV services over the NBN
"...prediction that by 2016 one-third of all Australians would have ditched free-to-air telly in favour of something called IPTV.
Sony-Google TV and AppleTV both offer chances to download free-to-air TV shows you may have missed, through catch-up sites such as the ABC's iView or Seven's Plus7."
"More than a quarter of Australians will have signed up to an online television subscription service within the next 4 years, a report forecasts. And IPTV, other subscription entertainment services and new mobile media apps will drive growth in Australia’s media and entertainment industry of 18 per cent over the next five years, it says..."

We are seeing this already with BBC HD channel being changed to BBC2HD, booting off a lot of content to BBC iPlayer HD, but at a lower resolution and lower frame rate.
A ray of hope is someone like Foxtel, who put their catch-up service into the IQ box via IP in pure 576i50, no stupid pointless deinterlacing to remove the motion detail.

A single transmitter per site is transmitting BBC HD1, BBC HD2, ITV HD and 4 HD all in 1920 x 1080. This is the advantage of DVB-T2 Modulation and MPEG-4 compression.
I suppose its like the ABC's IView, delayed viewing because the viewer missed the original transmission.

Is Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV the future of Australian television?
I think they're clutching at straws. Look what a hash the 7 network made of TiVo in oz. a great product that had the potential to be so much more than what they ultimately delivered.

iView type service will surely go when the ABC, SBS are "privatised" that is sold to the same owners as the cable and FTA sources.
