yeah, I copy and pasted to tool that guesses what language it is I put in, it came up latin.

Unfortunately, I can't find a translator for Latin to English.

It appears to be in Latin.

It is in Latin.

All new website templates have the design and layout pre-made and Latin language where you would place your own text.

Hehe: "Freeview is blah blah Freeview is blah blah"

They may as well keep it that way, it's not like they are going to put anything more informative there. :D

lol, i like your sense of humour. it's very much like mine sometimes

but in all seriousness; anyone reckon that this whole freeview marketing is going to be successful? geez, i'd hate to see those foxtel-like ads everywhere: every website you open, you see a foxtel banner, you travel by public transport you're bound to see foxtel advertisements and you can't even open a newspaper or magazine without expecting a foxtel ad

i wonder what 2009 has to offer when it comes to freeview

Not if you know what to do :winky:

you travel by public transport you're bound to see foxtel advertisements and you can't even open a newspaper or magazine without expecting a foxtel ad

And you can't even open your letterbox these days without something in there about foxtel.

Just really nice to see that Nine has taken the initiative... Given that it's the Only TV network who has stated that they don't like the idea of Multichanneling, one of the primary reasons that Freeview was introduced in the UK (to increase overall spectrum available for multichannelling!)

Yeah, that Foxtel Advertising is 'cause they have to spend their money somewhere!

Sites hosted by Nine by the looks of things. The error pages are the standard nineMSN error pages.

Not a bad looking site, logo's a bit odd. It's early stages, but I hope they make the front page a bit more attractive/give it the information it needs (similar to the UK and NZ Freeview sites).

If anyone wants a good laugh they should go along to an information session for prospective Foxtel Salespeople. I went to one a couple of years ago out of curiosity and I have never laughed so much. The totally unbelievable, unrealistic, over hyped gibberish they spruiked to the poor saps that had gone along thinking that they were going to some sort of job interview was incredible. You would have thought that they were providing an essential service the way they were hyperventilating. It reminded me of the pseudo religious fervour of an Amway convention that I have seen in a couple of documentaries about that allegedly life changing detergent company.

i dont see the point why you'd make a website with functioning links that redirect you to an error page

More likely why they have it visible to the public instead of having a username/password on it so that only authorised users have access.

personally I do agree that it is unprofessional for it to be accessible but really apart members here that actually know about freeview and randomly typed in the address apart from that I don't really think It's a problem if it looks unprofessional because people will want free tv anyway and will adopt it if they want it no matter what the website looked like before the website was advertised and the service launches

Now doesn't seeing Latin take you back to your old school days?

Latin is a dead language,

As dead as it can be.

First it killed the Romans,

and now its killing me.

DV

The words are nonsense, but as Micro$oft say on their support website;

Although the phrase is nonsense, it does have a long history. The phrase has been used for several centuries by typographers to show the most distinctive features of their fonts. It is used because the letters involved and the letter spacing in those combinations reveal, at their best, the weight, design, and other important features of the typeface.

A 1994 issue of "Before & After" magazine traces "Lorem ipsum ..." to a jumbled Latin version of a passage from de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum, a treatise on the theory of ethics written by Cicero in 45 B.C. The passage "Lorem ipsum ..." is taken from text that reads, "Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit ...," which translates as, "There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain..."

During the 1500s, a printer adapted Cicero's text to develop a page of type samples. Since then, the Latin-like text has been the printing industry's standard for fake, or dummy, text. Before electronic publishing, graphic designers had to mock up layouts by drawing in squiggled lines to indicate text. The advent of self-adhesive sheets preprinted with "Lorem ipsum" gave a more realistic way to indicate where text would go on a page.
