TV view­ers will need to ad­just to these changes

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

RE­GIONAL Queens­land TV view­ers will need to ad­just to changes to long­stand­ing broad­cast­ing ar­range­ments tak­ing ef­fect this week.

Re­gional broad­cast­ers WIN and South­ern Cross Aus­tereo will ef­fec­tively un­dergo a swap in their re­spec­tive 30-year sup­ply agree­ments.

From Fri­day on­wards WIN, op­er­at­ing on Chan­nel 8, will air Chan­nel 10-branded pro­gram­ming such as MasterChef, Off­spring and The Liv­ing Room.

The WIN Net­work’s lo­cal news bul­letins will shift to the 6pm times­lot to air di­rectly be­fore Ten’s hour-long cur­rent af­fairs show The Pro­ject.

Re­gional view­ers keen to watch Fam­ily Feud will need to tune in to ei­ther of Ten’s two dig­i­tal chan­nels ONE and ELEVEN, which are also mov­ing to the new chan­nel num­bers of 81 and 82 re­spec­tively.

South­ern Cross, which op­er­ates on Chan­nel 5, will con­versely carry Chan­nel 9’s pro­gram­ming such as The Voice, Love Child and the re­main­der of the NRL sea­son.

Un­for­tu­nately there will be a de­lay in South­ern Cross’s abil­ity to simul­cast Nine in high def­i­ni­tion, mean­ing the third State of Ori­gin match on July 13 won’t be broad­cast to re­gional Queens­land in HD.

Nine’s life­style chan­nel 9LIFE will also be tem­po­rar­ily un­avail­able un­til Au­gust in re­gional Queens­land un­til South­ern Cross ac­quires an ad­di­tional broad­cast chan­nel to ac­com­mo­date it.
