Television not good enough
AROUND12 months ago Iwas so pleased with the news council had decided to make available free-toair television to Eidsvold from within Eidsvold.
Council rejected the Federal Government’s offer to subsidise the installation of dishes to residences and the supply of set top boxes.
They went with an aerial at the water tower.
As I say, I was pleased, and in fact excited – so excited I had the Pay TV cut off, bought a new antenna for the roof of the house and anticipated all the best in lounge room entertainment. But it is flawed and useless. There has not been a full week’s viewing since its installation and as the storm season is upon us, it gets more ridiculous.
It only has to look like rain and the system shuts down.
The past weekend, the only station available was the ABC.
Win is available on and off but almost every weekend it breaks down.
Seven is a little better but goes off from time to time. It is Sunday night now and only ABC is available.
SBS has been off for almost two months and Ten is about theworst.
Lucky I don’t watch Ten’s hit drama, Homeland.
Eidsvold deserves better than this and it must be fixed before Christmas when the children are at home all day.
