We are confident that our tipster and resident of New Zealand, Toby Hawkes, isn't the only one happy about this announcement. The New Zealand government has announced a plan to provide free-to-air digital television service within a year. The service will be model after Britain's service. There isn't any talk about high-def yet though, just digital. Got to start someplace though.

[thanks for the tip Toby]
