SYDNEY, Australia — In what Freeview Australia is calling a “major milestone in the development of free digital TV in Australia”, the full range of initial reception equipment was launched in early October at an event in Sydney.

A total of seven manufacturers – Beyonwiz, Bush, Grundig, Humax, Magic TV, Strong and Uniden -showcased their EPG-enabled equipment. The EPG is powered by MHEG with Freeview Australia also specifying the hybrid MHEG Interaction Channel for later deployment.

The new equipment is now available in stores and compatibility is assured by independent testing. Freeview also previewed its new television advertising campaign at the event.
