This news was from Tuesday (sorry for the delay and thanks to Paul Boxcutter for the heads-up).
Come September, Foxtel will be rebroadcasting Ten’s digital signal which also means they will publish the Ten EPG.
Now we just have to wait for Foxtel to open up their system to allow other pieces of software and hardware to have access and we might actually have a choice over how we watch our television.
Just imagine an openly competitive marketplace. A place where we can buy whichever PVR we want, subscribing to whichever EPG we choose (Ice TV really does have the best service out there), rather than being tied to one system. Alas, I seem to live in a dream world.
Still, I’ve now signed up for an IQ. I’ll be sure to keep the Boxcutters listeners/blog-readers posted on the ups and downs.
