(Formerly ABC Comedy)

Launching January 1st and airing from 7.30pm to 2am daily on channel 22 on your digital TV, channel 134 on Foxtel or channel 126 on Optus, our newly-rebranded secondary channel ABC TV Plus will celebrate Australian culture and content every night of the week. Complemented by an exciting suite of international shows, ABC TV Plus will cater for all Australians with diverse new programs, from Saturday stand-up comedians to primetime premieres of religion, science and natural history documentaries, along with the best of the arts – three nights a week. ABC TV Plus will warm the heart, challenge the mind and tickle the funny bone, with the premiere of new comedy series Why are You Like This? , which follows three 20-something friends as they hilariously navigate life’s complexities.

Cough. Paramount+


ABC will be more competitive on Thursday nights from next year with Back Roads, Foreign Correspondent and Q&A.

Returning Children’s Shows: Bluey, Itch, Hardball, Play School.
New Children’s Shows: The Wonder Gang, Space Nova and Mikki vs the World.

Doors Plus predated all of them.


I’d say just keep posting in ABC Comedy/Kids and then that thread will be renamed in 2021.

Missing from the upfronts was Reputation Rehab :cry:

The show is going into rehab. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
