LOVERS of the Footy Show were left holding their beers in frustration on Thursday night after WIN Sunshine Coast lost signal.
After attempting to re-tune digital set top boxes, viewers of the popular show were left with only a no-signal sign on their television sets to spend the night with.
WIN’s other digital station Go also had no signal while all other digital stations, including Seven, ABC, SBS and Ten, all had reception.
Numerous calls by The Gympie Times to WIN yesterday to find out the cause of the fault were passed further and further down the line.
The first call to WIN’s Maroochydore office said to ring Brisbane which, in turn, said to ring Rockhampton, which said to ring Bundaberg and Hervey Bay, which both – after returning left messages – said to ring Maroochydore.
After ringing the Maroochydore office for the second time, the girl on the line said they had no technicians on hand to talk to.
Apparently they were all out trying to fix the problem.
Let’s hope the problem is fixed next week so we get to see Fatty and the boys.
