I worry that ABC chief Kim Dalton is spending too much time in the public eye. In trying to talk up free-to-air TV’s future in the Sydney Morning Herald he says ‘additional free-to-air digital channels and devices such as Seven Network’s TiVo will reduce the appeal of pay TV’. Then in the same article he’s quoted as saying ‘the TiVo recorder and digital set-top box would remain a relatively niche product’.
Reminds me of the Jewish couple leaving the restaurant. ‘That was the worst food I’ve ever eaten’. ‘Yes, and such small portions!’
