Prime threat to RiotACT?

By Ari 25 September 2007 26

It looks like Prime TV wants to muscle in and take some of RiotACT’s action with a rival website targetting Canberra (among other places).

Due to defamation laws I can’t see Prime allowing debate or comment that is as, ahem, “free-spirited” as RiotACT.

Perhaps they’ll get multiple award-winning ACT blogger Samuel Gordon Stewart or Johnboy to run the show?

What’s Your opinion?

Perhaps they can make money out of such a website by splattering it with ad’s. Who could give a toss. They should be delivering local content on TV ! But they DON’T HAVE TO ! Thanks to John Howard and the Capital City of Sydney of Australia of of of …….

I have actually been developing a new site based on RiotACT for three months, for launch next January. It will feature a forum (like RiotACT), plus “Public Meetings” (online real time chat once a week that other sites offer quite successfully), image galleries, competitions, ACTtube and news. All with a refined style and super fast performance. Should give iPrime a run for it’s money too.

Ch7 apparently maybe the most watched station but not by me. If they didn’t have the V8, AFL or Olympics and the Domestic Test Rugby, I would never ever watch it. Full of over-hyped crpa Americanised garbage. Yeah I know the other two commercial networks aren’t much better.

“Does anyone know why Prime/Ch7 are unable to use their digital channels so that multiple events such as V8’s and the AFL can be played live simultaneously? Are they just lazy/tight or is there are resonable explanation? Seems like a waste to me.”

thank the late kerry packer and his mate paul keating. they deal they did has harmed the rollout of digital tv in this country. dont blame the regulator, blame the politicians.

ct used to have a very robust comments area – although it used to be dominated by a few idiots.

it was changed last year – not even sure if it exists anymore.
