What does CTV mean to you? I've been asking a few people and get
answers ranging from "armchair poem recitals" to "open source TV".
As I understand it, there are a few licensees in the captial cities.
Lots of localised channels.
This new national organisation CTVAA wants to form a national voice for
community content producers and broadcasters. The aim is to form a
content production and delivery system from 700 local government areas,
and talk the government into the license and funds to distribute
nationally on DTV.
I think this has the possibility of increasing demand for broadband
services, but it would still be hampered by volume-based access regimes
for TV of reasonable broadcast quality.
Perhaps that adage that one should never underestimate the data
handling capacity of a ute full of DVDs doing the ton, is true.
What do you think?
