An interesting read.  Especially the Broadcast Australia Dec 2006 report, 
and the inclusion of their limited market research sample.

Seems no one is watching the Christian Channel :)

Or the 24 hour a day Expo "Call now, but wait get free steak knives so you 
can carve your DTB!"

I've found the "NSW Info" channel became unusable last year.  Being unable 
to select the information and waiting 20 minutes for a loop to pass wasn't 
really helpful.

I'd really support an RTA Traffic Channel that has a user interactive user 
selection of which camera option.    This might well assist with traffic 
congestion and all kinds of problems.

I'm not sure about the "Mobile TV" concept.  What's the "mobile" user use 
to get the broadcast?  Another pocket device?
