A random week off?
Must be cheap filler because it doesn’t make sense for Nine to continue airing this and Young and the Restless with that 6-month delay or whatever it is. It would make sense if the fast tracked episodes were available on Stan and 9Gem could funnel new viewers to subscribe. but at the moment it’s only going to help get Foxtel get new viewers.
I can’t find the post now but someone wanted to watch the old James Bond movies before “No Time To Die” comes out in cinemas. Looks like 9Gem is running the movies every night from Saturday night.
Saturday: Dr No
Sunday: From Russia With Love
The Brokenwood Mysteries - Season 7
From Thursday 11 November at 8:40pm

Mike and his team are thrust into a world of antiquities when a TV crew from the hit series All Things Old and Beautiful arrives in town and one of the hosts is murdered.
THE 55TH ANNUAL COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS
Thursday 11 November at 12:00 pm
Just switched on Law & Order a few minutes ago, the audio on the HD channel appears a fraction of a second behind, whereas the audio is fine on the SD channel. Odd.
9Gem will show a new one-hour special Christmas at Highclere Castle tomorrow (December 5) at 7.30pm. Produced by ITN Productions for Channel 4 last year, the documentary gains unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to Highclere Castle, where Downton Abbey was set, as the small team at the castle decks the halls and transforms for Christmas in its own unique way.
UPDATE 12/12: it will be followed by the premiere of another special Christmas at Warwick Castle tonight at 7.30pm.
I see Days of our Lives is back on the schedule. Does anyone know why 9gem continually drops it only for it to bring it back yet Young & the Restless airs pretty much continually? The lag for Days is well over a year now.
They’ve also brought The Bill back after only airing it for 8 weeks in Prime Time last year. It looks like the same episodes from last year. Still nice to see it airing in its old ABC daytime slot.
Likely for the Bill it’s the only episodes they have the rights for.
Weird about Days though, considering the show ran uninterrupted during COVID due to the backlog seems odd it was paused.

How is it possible that 9Gem and Seven are showing the same event on the same night? Did Seven get the non-exclusive FTA rights?
Probably just easiest to allow anyone who wants to broadcast it in the Commonwealth to do so.
They’ve also ‘waived’ the licence fee so community halls and other public gatherings etc can show the event (usually they wouldn’t be legally allowed)
Days Of Our Lives, currently airing on 9Gem, is moving from NBC to Peacock in the US. It is unclear if this will have any impact on the show’s airing here, probably little change in the short-term, I guess.
I think Nine and Foxtel buys Days of Our Lives from distributor Sony Pictures Television, not NBC. As long as SPT is happy to continue to fulfill the contract by supplying the episodes, that should be OK.
