The HD trial was organised by the three terrestrial broadcasters, RTÉ, TV3 and TG4, as well as BT and CEDA, who worked closely together to develop a range of content that would suitably test the system and demonstrate the improvement in picture quality. Chair of that group, John Hunt, Director of Operations at RTÉ Television, said: “HD is important to broadcasters and it is vital that the terrestrial providers do not get left behind in the development of improved services made available by such technology. We believe the best quality television pictures should be available to all viewers in Ireland and that is why it is so important that this trial is a success. The broadcasters would like to thank all those who have helped get this trial off the ground.” link
so this is why RTÉ are giving us DAB and not DRM plus?
isn’t it odd that RTÉ are thanking BT ireland for DTT trials…
AND the BIG one I can not swallow this quote “We believe the best quality television pictures should be available to all viewers in Ireland” well Mr. Hunt, Director of Operations at RTÉ Television, if you cared so much about quality television pictures in Ireland, you would walk down the corridor to the legal department and tear up the secret deal with BSkyB that has RTÉ encrypted so “quality television pictures” in digital wide screen are NOT seen free to air in Ireland.
