Your dream TV network

maybe one of the FTA channels could do like foxtel did with foxtel smooth and foxtel arts and have a section of the day dedicated to sports instead of foxtel arts being moved to foxtel smooth eg maybe have 4:30pm til 10:30pm as sport and the rest of the day to alternative viewing… obviously extending it for special events when sporting events are held outside of those times (think Ashes Tour of England next year… that was 7:30pm til 3:00am when nine had the rights - coverage times on GEM AEST)

Here is how I would vary late nights/early mornings on Ten AND change 11 each day between midnight and midday. This would rely on a partnership between Ten and WIN

Cricket in the daytime, Housos/Trailer Park Boys on alternate evenings, and BBC World News at 0700/1900. It would close at Midnight to allow TV DX to come through. :smile: At 0600, a full sign on with a beautiful test card and elevator music.


That’s going to wipe a lot off the income!

Do TV stations seriously get much revenue from overnight infomercials and crappy reruns? Probably better to save electricity😝

Not sure if I like the repeats of shows you have in prime time. Really the only thing that you have on there is Neighbours in prime time that is only new. Futurama has been axed so it will be endless repeats, (but The Simpsons is still going)

You have kids programming/news in the arvo/ and entertainment in the evening which is 80% full of repeats. I like the logo though, but it just seems to be disorientated. What would you think Six purpose would be? If it would be a BBC Programming channel based off their channels for an international audience?

It’s not bad though I just think for entertainment in the evening there should be new content. Even if you just make it up :stuck_out_tongue: You could always make a 6+2 channel which could have the classics that way your main channel could focus on being entertainment. :slight_smile:


My revised network structure. It would essentially be a local varient of Seven and the News and programming would differ to suit each broadcast area.

Not bad if it’s a classic channel, but my question is why put the BBC World news on a Classics channel?


I believe the viewers should be kept up to date with the latest News now and then.

News updates, yes but not a full news bulletin. Don’t think it would work. 7two tried that, and that was a national bulletin and didn’t work. I think the news is better off on the main channel. Not many viewers would care about the news, if they are watching a multichannel. It would switch me right off. :slight_smile:

I can’t wait to see the schedule for the Six Network’s multichannel 69.


Adult Programming 24/7!


Ellen is not a classic, so why would you put Ellen on 6TWO , when it’s a talk show ? It would be better on the main channel weekdays. Just to point out :slight_smile:


Considering how long Ellen has been on television I’m pretty sure you can count it as a classic.


It’s a talk show, so I don’t consider it a classic , but each to their own though. I definetly wouldn’t schedule on a Classic channels :slight_smile: but we all can have our own opinions.
