Freeview? Schmeview!

With the progressive analogue television switch-off in Australia commencing from early next year, Freeview, a consortium representing the existing Free-to-Air networks have been busily pushing their “new” channels. So far, only one new channel – (incidentally called “ONE”) – has made it to air as yet. Some people are sceptical – as this parody of the Freeview commercial illustrates.

Freeview had their lawyers get this pulled off YouTube once – only for it to go straight back up. So they decided not to be so precious about it. Perhaps they should listen to the message if they REALLY want people to start taking up digital television in Australia.
