    Default Freeview Update via Alkris June 2014 newsletter

    Please note Mediaworks will be shutting down the TV3 Auckland feed on Optus D1 12456H
    and Freeview will update the BAT to point approved devices to the new Sky TP. NZ15 Lower (12644MHz H-Pol). Service ID 1033

    This change is been done to improve bandwidth and enable Mediaworks to launch FOUR +1.
    Changes that will be done on 1am 26 June

    o TV3 Auckland Kordia feed will be removed
    o Freeview BAT will point to Sky TP
    o Edge TV will launch on ch9 on both satellite and terrestrial
    o C4 will close
    o FOUR + 1 will launch on ch 11 on both satellite and terrestrial

    TV3 Auckland and C4 are already running on 12644H as they have been for a long while. I expect EDGE TV will simply replace C4 there when it closes. With 4 plus 1 taking TV3 Aucklands place on 12456H

    Not sure how this is going to save any bandwidth anyhow..

    Mediaworks decided not to follow through with this idea, The current situation is:

    The Edge TV Will launch as normal on the old C4 slot for both DTH and DTT with the LCN moved to 11 (Used to be 9 pre 26th June)
    Four+1 Official launch has been delayed till mid-July, on the DTT Platform it has been soft launched from today (Though on my TV and gear it hasn't popped up yet)[/B] and DTH will get this in July.

    Cheers :-)
