    Nine will broadcast their main channel in SD and in HD from Nov. 26

    LCN 9 - Nine (SD version)
    LCN 90 - NineHD (HD version will be MPEG-4, I believe)
    LCN 91 - Nine (duplicate LCN of LCN 9)
    LCN 92 - GEM (moved to SD MPEG-2)
    LCN 93 - GO! (will also use LCN 99 for a while until people get used to the new number)
    LCN 94 - NineLife (bandwidth reallocated from old EXTRA channel)
    LCN 95 - EXTRA
    LCN 99 - GO! (temporary duplicate LCN of LCN 93).

    Not all equipment will decode MPEG-4 - a rescan after Nov. 26 will probably be necessary.

    Fuck off! Why couldn't they just shift HD to 91 instead of fucking around with GEM?

    Re-tuning shits me.

    9Life. The only thing cheaper than doing your own reality television is to buy somebody elses. Classic.

    Nice for the Test tomorrow though.
