One HD events simulcast with TEN not broadcast on One SD
« on: April 13, 2009, 11:11:43 AM »
It now seems that whenever TEN is simulcasting an event on both TEN and ONE (FTA anti-siphoning events usually) then One SD gets only a logo screen saying "Watch TEN or ONE HD".  This was first reported a week ago for the F1 (I haven't seen a response from Ice yet) and it is also happening for the AFL games.

There is an excellent technical reason for them doing so - more bandwidth is available for TEN and ONE HD by avoiding the unnecessary duplication of One SD. However if Ice shows these events in the Guide for One SD then they will undoubtedly get some VERY disgruntled customers.

I suggest that whenever Ice sees the same event on TEN and ONE HD then it clears the event from One Digital.  Even if this is sometimes wrong it is better to be wrong this way - those who want to record/watch the SD version will do so on TEN.

Yes, it would be great if this could be fixed.
