What fantastic news as I was very cranky when I heard Canberra wouldn't get One HD.

Of course, ONE HD (http://www.tencorporate.com.au/library/documents/Network%20Ten%20announces%20new%20sports%20multi-channel%20ONE%20-%2028%20October%202008.pdf) comes at a cost. The loss of Ten HD:

ONE will be broadcast from early in the second quarter of calendar 2009 in High Definition (HD) on Channel 1 and it will also be available in Standard Definition (SD) on the network's second SD channel (Channel 12).

The "three" channels that Ten will be providing into Freeview will really only be two. Don't be surprised if the other commercial channels do something similar.
