9HD_0001The Nine Network has today (Thursday) launched its new lifestyle channel 9Life and commenced high definition of its main channel as 9HD.

The changes, along with channels GEM and GO being re-named 9Gem and 9Go respectively, took place early this morning on Nine’s broadcast signal in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Nine Darwin is yet to confirm a launch date for 9Life but other changes were scheduled as per the other cities.

It is still not known how or when these changes will filter through to Nine’s regional affiliates including WIN, NBN, Imparja and Southern Cross SA.

For the cities where changes have occurred the new channel line-up is as follows:

Nine (High Definition): 90
Nine (Standard Definition): 91 and 9
9Gem: 92
9Go: 93 and 99
9Life: 94
Extra: 95

Viewers may need to do a re-scan on their TV tuner or PVR to pick up these changes. Also, older tuners may not pick up the high definition signal of Nine as this is being transmitted in MPEG4 standard which is not compatible with sets pre-dating around 2009. (Seven‘s racing channel and the SBS Food Network are also broadcasting in MPEG4 but in standard definition)

  1. I live near Gympie but cannot receive any digital Gympie telecasts so rely on satellite to view Impaja channels. When are the extra channels, 9 Life and Extra going to be added to regional areas. Surely in this day and age, a year or more is sufficient time to roll out across all areas. Thanks.
