Community TV Will Be On Freeview EPG

Freeview has so far managed to do a pretty good job of convincing the tech-savvy that it hasn’t got a clue, so it’s good to see the commercial network digital TV conglomerate doing something right for a change.

Sally Jackson at the Australian reports that when Freeview eventually rolls out its electronic program guide (EPG), it will include community TV stations (yep, that ghostly presence at 31 on your current TV). That’s one feature which Foxtel doesn’t boast, having so far refused overtures to include the community channels in its own EPGs. That doesn’t mean all is right in the Freeview universe — the apparent unwillingness to allow non-Freeview seto-top boxes to access its EPG is still a worry — but at least it’s one step in the right direction.
