Kuttsywood's Couch's 2nd annual guide to Daylight Saving FTA delays in QLD.

"It"'s back for 2009/10. Of course I am referring to Daylight Saving, which Queensland does not have.
This post was so popular last year, that the people at DS4SEQ (aka the Daylight Saving For South East Queensland political party, here in Queensland) used it as a effective source, and help spread the message of the "true" cost of having no Daylight Saving in Queensland in a networked TV world (losing ad share), being delays, by the bowlful.

This year there is a main difference, with the addition of schedules for commercial digital multichannels One HD, GO! and Seven's new SD "72" schedules due soon, as well as detailed analysis on cricket, SuperGP, tennis and Sydney's NYE telecast times and delays.



The list begins as follows:
Digital multichannels:

One HD: (HD feed available in both Ten [Brisbane/Gold Coast] (Ch 1) and Southern Cross Ten coverage areas [including Nthn NSW overlap] (Ch 50) , SD feed only available in Brisbane/Gold Coast areas covered by Ten on Ch 12.)

Thursday Night Live: delayed one hour, except SC10 GC.
Most live One-exclusive sport (i.e non AU anti-siphoning list/o'seas, eg MLB, NFL etc.): always live, into all coverage areas.
Anti-Siphoning list sports, that will air on Ten, and One's HD feed: most likely live.
One-exclusive Sports Tonight screenings: delayed one hour except SC10 GC.

GO! (SD-only channel, available on Win in aggregated regional Queensland on Ch 88, Nine in Brisbane and Gold Coast on Ch 99, and NBN Gold Coast on Ch 88)
Currently this channel also runs on a national ad feed, prior to the full launch on October 4.
Post October 4: most likely live in Queensland with a QLD specific ad feed, GO!88 Gold Coast will take a NSW specific ad feed and operate on Sydney time.

Seven/Prime GC 2nd SD, rumored to be "72": Major update will be done, when schedules for this channel are announced closer to the startup date.
