CanWest's TEN To Launch TEN-HD

TEXT SIZE bigger text smaller text
In December of this year, the TEN Television
Network in Australia will be launching TEN-HD, offering more choice in the highest possible broadcast quality for free in the major metropolitan centres of mainland Australia. TEN was the first Australian television network to
begin broadcasting in Standard Definition Digital and is the only network
transmitting the globally-recognised pinnacle HD broadcast Standard. CanWest owns approximately 56% of Ten Network Holdings Limited, which owns and operates the TEN Television Network.

For substantial periods of the day, TEN-HD will break away from TEN's primary channel to offer alternative programming and themed events focusing on, for example, Live Sport, Entertainment, Movies, Documentaries and Science
Fiction. TEN-HD's signature programs will be in stunning full HD, delivering
the highest possible picture and sound quality to viewers.

Industry figures from Digital Broadcasting Australia show that by March 2007, 28% of Australian homes had free-to-view digital television, with HD receiving equipment comprising the fastest-growing segment of a market that is itself dramatically increasing each quarter.

Given the rate of take-up, the Australian Digital Suppliers Industry Forum (ADSIF) predicts that almost 10 million flat panel HD TVs will be purchased in Australia by 2012. At this rate, ADSIF estimates that there will
be at least one HD TV in the vast majority of Australia's eight million homes in only five years.
