Not that Channel 9 has ever really understood the benefit of broadcasting content in HD, but David Knox over at TV Tonight is reporting that with the launch of their second SD channel Go!, Nine is reverting to using their HD channel to simulcast whatever
crap they're showing on their regular SD channel.
The move is to try and drive people who don't want to watch the regular content to the new Go! channel.
On the (albeit small) upside, Ellen, The View, Entertainment Tonight, Nine’s Late News, Gilmore Girls, NRL Footy Show and Today Weekend Edition will all be broadcast in HD now. Joy!
