GEM goes HD


Nine/NBN has today added GemHD to its service line up on Channel 85. This new channel will be available across all of Northern New South Wales and the Gold Coast.

Most Televisions should just add the new service to the channel collection on your receiver automatically. However, there may be some that won’t add this automatically so a channel rescan may be needed to pick up this new service. The instructions on how to do this are found in the service manual of your Television.

The new GemHD service is similar to the current Nine HD service in that is transmitted using the MPEG4 format for better picture quality. Some older televisions may have difficulty receiving the MPEG4 format. If you can receive the Nine HD on channel 80 service now, you will be able to receive GemHD. The normal standard definition Gem channel will still be available on Channel 82 for those who cannot receive the improved HD signal.

The forthcoming Ashes series between Australia and England will be shown nightly from August 1st in HD on GemHD Channel 85.

Our current channel line-up now is: -

NineChannel 8 (SD)

NineHD Channel 80 (HD)

NineChannel 81 (SD)

GemChannel 82 (SD)

GO!Channel 83 (SD)
