Don’t Believe The Herald Sun’s Digital TV FUD

While there’s plenty to criticise about Freeview, a recent article in the Herald Sun managed to totally mislead a large proportion of the population by claiming that many TVs would become redundant on May 1 when Freeview launches. Nick over at Gizmodo has a nice overview of the issue and why the Melbourne paper got it so wrong, but the bottom line is that there’s no scheduled change to the transmission standards being used by Australian TV stations, and hence no prospect of everything going dead in a month or so. Time to call your Victorian relatives, perhaps?
