Another HD Channel Bites The Dust

Exit 9HD, enter GEM.

According to TV Tonight, Channel 9 will axe its high definition 9HD channel on September 23rd, and replace it with GEM, a channel aimed at women over 35 on September 24th, a day before Channel 7 launches its new blokey 7mate channel. GEM (it stands for General Entertainment and Movies) will feature programs such as Weeds, The Secret Millionaire, Random Acts of Kindness and Wife Swap, along with some HD sports in order to meet programming quotas.

Is it just me, or is it becoming ever more bleak on the digital TV landscape for those of us who want dedicated free to air HD channels?
