Freeview launches online TV guide

Upgraded Freeview Web site contains seven days of listings for free-to-air channels and additional channel information

Freeview, which is a marketing platform for Australia’s free to air digital television channels, has upgraded its online TV guide.

The online Freeview TV Guide provides a schedule of seven days' viewing across all the Freeview channels, displaying them in an easy to read grid similar to Foxtel’s What’s On TV guide.

“The Freeview online TV guide is a fast and very convenient way for viewers to look up all their favourite programs, and has been developed as a direct result of viewer demand,” said Freeview CEO Robin Parkes.

The guide features channel information, program start and finish times, program titles, as well as details of shows such as classifications, genre and a brief description of the content. Freeview is also set to launch an electronic program guide (EPG) later this year.

Freeview, owned by Australia’s free-to-air broadcasters, does not endorse PVRs (digital set-top boxes that record TV) that are capable of skipping ads.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
