By the power of Freeview, begone blurry telly! For an outlay of $85 ($35 cable, $35 decoder, $15 postage) plus an hour or so crawling around under the house poking holes in the floor/walls, we now have a cable from the sky aerial to the lower lounge (silly previous occupants got it wired into the upper lounge) plus a cheapy decoder off Trademe. The result is a massive improvement in picture quality (a few spots of snow here or there but largely awesome) plus a couple of extra channels (C4, TVNZ6 and 7 being the ones we're likely to watch). Just in time for V48HoursTV, the two weeks of half hour shows featuring the best of this year's 48 hour film competition.
