History

The licence to operate Darwin's third commercial television station was allocated to Darwin Digital Television Pty Ltd, a joint venture with the two existing commercial television broadcasting licensees in the Darwin area, Regional Television Pty Ltd (Southern Cross Darwin) and Territory Television Pty Ltd (NTD Nine) in early 2007.[2]

The channel was due to launch in late 2007 but was delayed when the channel started test transmitting a test pattern on 21 April 2008 at 6.00p.m. ACST[3] The channel started transmitting television programs on 28 April 2008 as part of a testing period ahead of the official launch.

Programming

DTD rebroadcasts a direct feed of Melbourne's ATV-10, except for sports channel ONE HD.

Imparja Television dropped Network Ten programs from 2008, Imparja as of 2008 does not show any Ten programming, except for AFL telecasts, and is almost fully aligned with Nine. However, Ten's AFL coverage will rebroadcast on Southern Cross Central, Southern Cross Darwin & Southern Cross Tasmania.
