Mediaworks' Plus 1 brings nothing new to NZ Freeview

Ugh, just what Freeview needs in New Zealand. The warmly anticipated new Mediaworks channel, Plus 1, will actually bring nothing new to the platform. Instead, it'll simply be a one-hour delayed broadcast of TV3, and worse still, the stale content won't even be beamed out in high-definition. Yeah -- that's despite TV3's original content being available in HD. We'd bother with telling you that it's coming out sometime within next year or so, but you've probably already stopped reading in disgust.
