We apologise for any inconvenience caused for not being able to provide local guide data for all regional areas at present. We would certainly love to offer EPG coverage for as many regional areas across Australia as possible.

Our guide team are always trying to improve their offering in terms of regional coverage. Your request for a specific Albury/Wodonga guide has been raised with them and we hope to cover this specific region along with other regional areas one day in the future.

Unfortunately it is very difficult and extremely labour intensive for our small team to add areas to our existing coverage as we receive no support from the major commercial TV Networks or from their regional affiliates.

We compile our own independent EPG from the ground up without any assistance from the commercial TV Networks. We employ a team of people who independently research every show on FTA TV and compile the IceTV Guide from the ground up using our own internal method and systems. We receive scheduling information from the ABC and SBS but from no other TV Network.

Guide data is freely provided in many countries around the world by TV Networks and/or given to third party aggregators like IceTV in order to promote their TV line-ups, but unfortunately this is not the case in Australia. The TV Networks have been reluctant to provide their EPG data for sometime now, mainly due to concerns that viewers with digital recording devices such as media centre’s and PVR's can quickly and easily skip through advertising and watch shows in their own time.

If and when we are able to extend our service coverage to Albury/Wodonga we will notify everyone of the change so that those interested can adjust their IceTV Guide region accordingly.

Rest assured, we will continue to look to add additional areas in our EPG coverage where possible.

Cheers,
