The free-to-air television industry has declared war on ad-skipping personal
video recorders as it prepares to release a free electronic program guide
for the first time.


Last Wednesday, the industry body representing local free-to-air networks,
Free TV Australia, announced all networks would be openly broadcasting seven
days worth of program listing information by January 1, 2008, creating
Australia's first free EPG.

Channels Nine and Ten began broadcasting today, while Channel Seven's will
commence on January 1 next year. ABC already broadcasts EPG information.
