Quick question while everyone moans about a lack of local news on satellite remote television.
What exactly do you mean by local news? The footprint for the remote services stretches from Lord Howe Island to the WA border... from the Gulf of Carpentaria to remote highland Tasmania.
What are you going to cover?
And how do you make it relevant to your viewers?
If I'm on Lord Howe I don't have the slightest interest in local happenings in Alice Springs.
Imparja should perhaps do Aboriginal news as that was part of its original license condition and possibly still is... but other local news?
The best you could hope for is a national bulletin out of somewhere with a mix of essential state news from everywhere except WA.

That is a good point. Imparja should've set up their service to take the footprint of their services. Your idea is a good one.

But from the looks of things...a bit too late.

Well some of the communities are so small "news" would barely happen.
I've been to Lord Howe Island and it is a small community where news isn not what us cityfolk think news is. Mind you, it does have news events from time to time - that RAN vessel a few years ago.

Imparja, I know little about, but perhaps they could do a national news service with an aboriginal focus.

The bulletin did have a heavy Aboriginal focus, but i'm not sure how relevant the stories were to communities outside Alice Springs and the NT.

Perhaps the budget that was being spent on news wasn't enough after they paid for this.

From http://www.dtvprofes...le.jsp?id=32960

Australia's only Aboriginal-owned independent network improves digital infrastructure with Omneon

Omneon Video Networks today announced that Imparja Television Pty. Ltd., the commercial satellite TV service covering Central and Eastern Australia, is installing an Omneon Spectrum media server for assembly and playout of all commercial, promo, and short-form content on the network's main commercial service.

Or maybe now that the equipment is being installed they can't do live news just pre-recorded "updates".

That might explain why the bulletin was cancelled...I believe it wasn't the most popular bulletin going around...SC Central is the leading station out in those parts.

I wouldn't think 7 News Brisbane would rate well outside of QLD... my guess is ABC News would be the market leader, because for most viewers it's the only bulletin providing State based news.

It will be interesting to see what Nine Darwin does in regards to news if, or when they begin broadcasting into Imparja's license area. I think they will go with one of the following three options:

1. Add a few Alice Springs/Remote Australia stories to the Darwin bulletin.
2. Do separate bulletins for Darwin and Remote Australia.
3. Retransmit the Darwin bulletin with no enhanced local content for remote regions.

I believe NTD will do some sort of local news coverage.... they'd be stupid not to. It wouldn't cost the earth recording a separate Outback bulletin each night using the Darwin newsreader and studios... and adding several stories that would be of interest and relevance to isolated viewers. Of course, many of the stories would be national/overseas items sourced from the Nine Network. They could also do a detailed weather segment to eat up time.

Another option.. which is probably unlikely... is a dedicated half hour regional bulletin (with all regional stories) and following at 6:30 could the capital city edition of N9N. That way viewers can stay fully informed of both "local" issues, and issues relevant to their State. But I was wondering is... can the stations split their satellite signal so viewers in each state get a different feed?

Nine Darwin had axed it's weekend news, so i don't think they would want to spend money on more local news.

I think Option 2 is the most likely... Option 1 would essentially mean that the Darwin content would be significantly reduced, and this would not be popular with the Darwin viewing public (whether Nine cares about this is another thing though!).

It wouldn't cost much for Nine to pre-record a Remote bulletin in Darwin and it would contain:
* National/International news (naturally);
* NT News (from the pre-existing Darwin bulletin which are not Darwin-specific);
* Major SA, NSW and QLD news (which could easily be sourced from those states). However, they may have to pay Nine Adelaide for their SA footage as they are not owned by PBL (or go with NSW/QLD news only if this is an issue).
* Perhaps the odd Alice Springs or Mt Isa news item (IF Nine are indeed prepared to do this).

Nine Darwin still produces a local news segment on weekends as far as I know.

They could just source news from the local newspapers or ABC News Online and do RVOs with no pictures. Not an ideal situation, but it's better than what SC and now Imparja are doing.

I notice on the Imparja website that at 8:27 there is a three-minute news and weather update. Maybe they still do cover some local news, but not as a full bulletin. Three minutes though - it's barely enough time for a decent regional weather report, let alone news. crazy.gif

Depends on the station... but it can be called a "live read" or "to camera read"

Nope, not yet but I understand they will be in a couple of months.

For those that aren't aware, Southern Cross Television Tasmania is affiliated with 7 & 10 but there programs are primarily from Seven.

They produce their own 30 minute news bulletin each day - Southern Cross Nightly News which is anchored by former Miss Australia Jo Cornish.
