A blog mate informed that Murdoch's Sky TV took our ABC to court to prevent ABC from using News 24, hence it ABC News 24. ABC's Melbourne resident morning broadcaster Jon Faine has almost been around long enough to be referred to as venerated. Almost. Your Sydney Morning Herald is a half decent newspaper. Both Faine and SMH have referred to the new ABC channel as News 24. While the ABC can't officially use News 24, it seems like Sky pissed a good bit of money up the wall as the people are naming the channel as they want.
My thoughts on the new channel, News 24, good, except....
What is this standing up presenter thing? Ridiculous. Ali Moore looks gorgeous on standard definition tv, when sitting at a desk. Not so in high definition and standing. How uncomfortable she and her grey haired co presenter looked. Please ABC, buy them a chair each. Speaking of the grey haired bloke, who is he? I know who most ABC people are, but who is he and where did he come from?
Well, that was just for the opening segment, I hope.
I have rescanned our pvr many times but ABC News 24 remains firmly rooted at ABC 20 and not 24. It is a moot point as it works fine. I rescanned R's bedroom pvr and it brought up 24 straight away. How odd.
