This mess is a photo I just took of our hotel's distribution of the cable network's Australian network channel. If it was a private subscription it could easily be cleaned up, but the real mess is the junk content they broadcast, and the politics and pressure that led to them getting the contract.
The tenders were called and they lost, there was an appeal and the decision to award the contract to the competitor was upheld. Then the minister threw out the result and re-tendered, the holders ABC lost again, so the minister threw everything out and awarded it permanently to the ABC. Just like sport viewing has been in Australia for many years the viewer is the loser.
There's something fishy about the deal for this.
I may be a few days till the next post, my adventure is nearly over.
