Information regarding Nine HD guide listings
« on: April 23, 2008, 03:26:37 PM »
During our research and evaluation of Nine HD programming we noticed certain short (1 to 10 mins) programs (such as Nine Presents, Tropfest Short Film Breaks and Getaway Moments) were regularly broadcast and repeated in between other HD shows.

We believe these programs are being used as "fillers" because advertising is lower than normal for commercial television. As an example a program that would normally air for 30 minutes is being shown in 20. We are unsure how long these "fillers" will be used and they seem to appear at irregular times.

Due to the erratic nature of the actual line-up for Nine HD at this early stage, IceTV will not include these programs as this may compromise full recording of other HD programming for IceTV customers.

Worst case scenario is that some recordings may include some of these "filler" programs at the beginning or end and you will have to skip through them.

Daniel.
