    Hi Guys, I noted that now there is slide on CH53 Gold Coast -WIN says :

    Sky News WIN coming this channel soon.

    This replaces the endless loop promo of 10's inane programing.

    Cheers

    Interesting, its a good channel and provides a much better service than the ABC who now simply dont report news unless it fits its agenda which is disappointing.

    Its quite a contrast how Sky runs on almost nothing compared to ABC news.

    For some reason, SkyNews now is on 2 channels on Foxtel and the UK version which ours becomes late at night, is on a third.

    This channel is now streaming in Ultra HD. Depending on your region is Ch83 or Ch53. When is programing due to start?

    You think that soon??

    I did wonder if the proposed mergers being touted might be causing any delay in the introduction.

    Just had a 'Flash Card' and a voice over announcing that SkyNews will be commencing on the 2nd of September. (Sunday)

    Hi Guys I see this morning that WIN has added the Sky News channel to VAST on the WA bouquet. Comes up as channel 85.
    The ABC will be upset.

    Hos, see my updated reply in the VAST forum to your posting.
    As for the ABC being 'Upset', this is bound to happen now the Media Laws have been changed.

    Not surprised the ABC is upset - another broadcaster (non publicly funded) offering an alternative to their biased green left propaganda. Bring it on.

    Having HD on a News channel is as useless as having the audio in 7 channel Surround Sound.........

    It is more a collage of Australia News Channel ANC & Fox Sports News. It is not a straight feed of Foxtel's channel 600. This mixed situation could be fluid and political??

    I don't watch news as a rule so this channel is pointless for me, BUT I'm noticing a marked reduction in quality of all the other TEN network FTA channels where I am since this Sky News channel started.

    Generally poor picture quality, digital artifacts/pixelation, signal dropouts (to black screen), TVSN is gone for some areas (no great loss there either) and channel OneHD doesn't seem to be HD any more (showing "576i SD" same as other channels now), all starting when this Sky News feed went live.

    For my 2c I wish they'd just turn the bloody thing off again!

    That explains why the call for reports if Viewers cant receive TVSN I saw the other day. I dont watch FTA much so I just checked and found I had Audio but no Video on ch 84 TVSN.
    SkyNews was ok on 83 so I did a rescan and I now have both Audio and Video on TVSN.
    This was on a Topfield STB I use as the TV cant receive MPEG4.
    Picture and Audio on that Network looks ok and I think 80 is still in HD but I cant tell.
    This problem maybe selective to individual areas rather than Network wide?
    ******************
    80 must be in HD as the TV doesnt support HD and I get no Audio/Video on that channel.

    You may have to do a Rescan if you havent already done so.
