What on earth is the ABC doing getting in to bed with commercial broadcasters and promoting Freeview?
Freeview is being promoted as something magical. It is only what any digital television or an analogue tele with a digital box attached receives. Apart from ABC and SBS, only Channel Ten has done anything with a digital channel, sports. Boring.
What they want you to do is go out and buy a Freeview recorder when they are released, yes the one that does not allow you to skip ads and the Freeview recorder will probably be poor value for money.
I am absoloutely mystified as to why ABC is promoting Freeview. I am also mystified why they are allowed to promote something that will lead to a commercial transaction with another party.
Of course, I would expect the commercial media to try and confuse and alarm the masses and then offer a one stop shop fixes all solution. That the ABC is involved is wrong.
