TVN Breakthrough For Regional Australia
ThoroughVisioN confirmed it has "accepted an offer from Sky Channel to settle the proceedings initiated by Sky Channel in August 2005 which had prevented the TVN Channel from being shown on Austar". The terms of the settlement "involve Sky Channel agreeing to the TVN Channel being broadcast by Austar". TVN chairman Harold Mitchell commented: "TVN is delighted that regional Australia will now be able to enjoy the full TVN service that it has been unable to access since May last year. We see this as a commercially sensible concession by Sky Channel & a vindication of the position taken by TVN." TVN will now "immediately commence negotiations with Austar to ensure the TVN Channel is available to regional viewers as soon as possible".
