At least ABC2 is going with the 'SciF(r)iday' idea that 10HD provided before it started the switch to One.

We never had 10HD in the country anyway. We only ever saw the loop of documentary on different towns of the country country=side.. Losing that will be no great loss!

For things like the AFL, it is quite likely that Ten has no choice but to show it on their main channel.

The same law that prevents such events being shown exclusively on pay television also prevents them being shown exclusively on digital only free to air channels (such as the secondary free to air stations). This was a concession made to Foxtel in exchange for them no longer being able to make exclusive deals for such things.

As long as that provision exists in the anti-siphoning laws, you'll see this kind of thing continue.
