One HD delayed….

one_hd 26 March 2009 47

Southern Cross Ten have advised that they will attempt to transmit the new One HD sports channel mid-year. I think this is a huge joke that Canberra (the nations capital) is being classified as regional and thus we have to put up with Southern Cross Broadcasting and missing out on the new ONE sport channel on HD and SD. Southern Cross advised that they do not yet have the infrustructure to broadcast HD when Ten has been broadcasting TenHD for almost a year. They have also shown no interest in trying to broadcast this channel in Standard Definition.

So no Formula 1, golf and other sports. 

What a joke for anyone in the regional towns across Australia, we deserve the same sort of service….

Shouldn’t take him too long. It only took me 2 minutes.

He’s looking very hard for that free internet F1 screening.

I had heard, on another forum that a website such as may be of assistance.

Having said that I would never, ever, ever endorse its use 😉

vg, where are you?! :rolleyes:

Im with Holden Caulfield, I am really looking forward to vg posting a useable link to live, free F1 feed before the next practice starts. I was pissed that the F1 qualifying was not televised (aparently even on ONE HD) live if at all. I just hope that the SC10 mob listen to all the malcontents in the community – I know they won’t though.

I remember in 2007 SC10 claimed that they would be broadcasting Channel 10 HD “Mid next year”

Time has proven that to be an empty promise. Will their promises be proved fallible again?

gertel said : Was pretty good value last F1 season. The race was half over by the time Ten bothered to start their delayed broadcast.

I can now confirm that this “service” is about as useful than tits on a bull.

Looking forward to vg posting a quality link to the Malaysian GP with some English commentary.

SCTen included a “One is coming” ad during the Simpsons on Friday night. So’s Christmas. I wonder which one we’ll get first?

What a joke. You Can’t watch sport like F1 at a decent hour, it is put on 5 hours delayed on a Sunday night. Are they having a laugh???? Only Laugh they get out of me with their terrible shows on instead.

The whole reason ten has f1 is so that it is fair for the whole community, not just pay tv.

Yes they do a good job for the Aus gp but apart from that terrible. Give it to Foxtel, may cost but then every1 can see it at the same time Nation wide.

Just can’t see 10’s logic. Gloabally the most watched sporting event and we cant watch it live??? If questions have to be asked about small numbers at aussie f1, I blame channel 10. If it is on live and correctly advertised, more people would become interested…

vg vg 9:14 am 05 Apr 09

Yeah, both people that watch the F1 are disrupted.

You are kidding yourself. The most globally watched sporting event is the Olympics then the World Cup. Both are live.

If the F1 thing was such an issue you would hear a larger hue and cry. We don’t.

If you’re that keen use a thing called the internet. You can watch everything live for free if you look hard enough

there was another forum running info on the same issue, they have created a petition online that will be sent to both SC Ten and Ten. here is the link to the petition:

I have just read and signed the online petition:

“OneHD for Southern Cross viewers”

hosted on the web by, the free online petition
service, at:

I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might
agree, too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
signing yourself.

Bump for gertel and post #31.

/me puts request for private message functionality in RA suggestion box.

Cheers, I’ll give that a whirl, even though I know they will handpass it straight to SCTen.

I see that costs $20 per year (US$ presumably) … is it worth the cash? How do they present the feed (QuickTime, wmv etc)? Are there any technical issues one might face (Mac OS 10.5.6 user)?

Can’t believe I missed this thread. As an AFL/F1 fan I’ll be pretty chuffed when we finally get OneHD.

I just rang Sotuhern Cross Ten and was told they’re testing everything and it’s a big job, yada, yada, yada … expect to lanuch mid-year. Which is nothing new given the first post above.

It really shits me, too, that TV stations don’t publish contact email addresses (for obvious reasons I guess, haha) … but if anyone knows of a SCTen email address please pass it on so we can give the pricks as much frustration as they give us!

Sucks. And stuck at work with no way to keep an eye on the motorracing. You’d think would also have streaming? Nooo. And does Southern Cross have an email address or online comment form via which one can complain? Nooo. Don’t want any of that nasty customer feedback stuff now do we?

Yet they have ABC there showing them how to do it all right, with among the best online services in the WORLD, and still they can’t figure out what century they are in.

Sunday. The Grand Prix is on Sunday. Which is now today… so maybe I’ll go turn on a TV.
