Great news gang, while we're all in the process of getting ready for 4K, with our televisions and our consoles and our Netflix subscriptions and our NBN — the ABC is getting ready for the almighty switch...

The change will take place in December.
To be fair to the ABC, multiple factors outside its control dictated the slow pace of change, but it doesn't negate the fact our national broadcaster is tremendously behind the curve here.
Well, Australia as a whole is tremendously behind the curve. 7 and Ten only recently launched its HD channels within the last year.
But yeah, talk about coming late to the party. The party is literally about to finish.
