I think here in NBN land I would be quite happy with 'crappy cover ups' if it meant a better news service... this is one area where I reckon WIN has a significant advantage over NBN.

Being a man who dosn't earn a big wage, A Good TV is a big purchace & watermark coverup memory burn is the biggest sin a TV station can commit as far as I'm concerned.

You've bought a crap TV if that's occurring. We have multiple TVs and none of them have that issue.

Burn-ins are fairly uncommon now days. Its usually an image retention that confuses everyone. We thought our old LG plasma, that we got back in 2010, had the same issue only to find out a few weeks later it could be easily removed using the whitewash option in settings. Basically cleared the screen of any faded WIN logos in a few minutes.
I'm pretty sure the news plasma's at 9 also suffer from the same thing, I've seen them using the white screen in some behind the scenes videos.

ACA dumped from 7:00pm in NSW on Monday, Wednesday and (it seems) Friday next week due to The Voice, State of Origin and The Block. WIN realising that ACA is mostly rubbish?

I think WIN have made the right decision here - ensuring that local news isn't impacted by 'special event' programming such as 'The Block'.

Unlike NBN who trim their 1 hour combined bulletin to just 30 mins (meaning that the already basic local news coverage in the hourly bulletin is further halved).

I wouldn't be at all worried if WIN (or NBN for that matter) dumped it permanently (or moved it to late nights)... I agree that it certainly isn't the program it once was with Jana Wendt.

Another alternative would be for ACA to move to GEM or GO! in WIN/NBN areas, like what 7TWO in Regional QLD do to Today Tonight. With Regional NSW being digital-only from the end of this year (Regional VIC & QLD are already digital-only), it may not be such a ridiculous thing to do. ;)

WIN TV Really need to fix there digital relay station at Goondiwindi Queensland. I had so many cranky people tell me that WIN keped freezing and breaking up all the way though the state of origin on wednesday night.
Apparently Both WIN & 7 Toowoomba's Goondiwindi relays break up all the time due to lack of signal from Pachendale Southern Downs

that's nothing, the NBN "Still to come" promo on YouTube has been "blocked because it features material owned by Channel 9" - despite them being the same company <bangs head>

Why is the WIN logo that blue colour on the purple, hard to see.

Why do P and C rated programmes have the luxury of a 'programme can be seen at the special time...' notice and other bumped programmes don't? Would save a lot of headaches for those viewers at the mercy of networks' erratic scheduling.

The Spy Report:

Gordon, who currently holds a 14 per cent stake in Ten Network Holdings, has been investigating a bid for the company, The Australian Financial Review reports. The television mogul has reportedly begun work with advisers at KPMG, and is seeking discussions with Nine owners CVC Asia Pacific.

If Gordon was successful, would we see any changes to WIN and 9?

Isn't Gordon buying Nine illegal under the 75% Reach law?

They must show a minimum number of hours of content with these ratings. It doesnt matter if a G/PG/M rating program gets dropped, but if its a P or C rated program it must be rebroadcast at another time to continue to meet quota requirements.
