Your dream TV network


#82

IMO Nine should have a news multi-channel before a multi-channel dedicated to sports. They have so much news, plus news rates.


#83

I agree that Nine should consider launching it’s own news multichannel. I actually made a thread based on a “Nine News Channel” on my forum, but i’ll copy+paste it here.

Here is how I would program a Nine News multi-channel:

5:00am: Nine Early Morning News [Simulcast from main channel]
5:30am: Today [Simulcast from main channel]
9:00am: Nine News: AM [Presented by Jayne Azzopardi]
10:00am: National Weather
10:30am: Sports Hub [All the latest headlines in sport, including interviews with special guests. Presented by Cameron Williams].
11:30am: Nine Morning News [Simulcast from main channel]

12:00pm: The Spectrum [The latest news and developments in domestic and international politics. Includes live crosses/interviews with members of parliament and political commentators. Presented by Chris Uhlmann].
1:00pm: Finance Today [Presented by Ross Greenwood]
1:30pm: In Conversation with Alex Malley
2:00pm: Nine News: PM [Presented by Amelia Adams]
3:00pm: Nine News Now [Simulcast from main channel]
4:00pm: Nine Afternoon News [Simulcast from main channel]
5:00pm: The World View [Panel show discussing debates and current topics from around the world. I have no idea which presenters would host/appear on the show, so i’ll let you decide that. :wink: ]

6:00pm: Nine News [Simulcast. The local bulletins would air in each retrospective market].
7:00pm: Weather Express [Brief insight into the national weather for the days/week ahead. Presented by Garry Youngberry].
7:30pm: Sports Central [All the latest headlines in domestic and international sport. Presented by Tony Jones].
8:00pm: The Front Line.
9:00pm: Nine News Tonight [Magazine-style program that would be similar to the 2012-2014 format of Ten Late News. Presented by Wendy Kingston].
10:00pm: The World View [Repeat from earlier in the evening].
11:00pm: In Conversation with Alex Malley [Repeat]
11:30pm: Nightline [Presented by Hugh Riminton. In such a scenario, Nine would poach Hugh from Channel Ten].

in such a scenario that a “Nine News Channel” is launched, I would place the channel on LCN 90 and move Nine HD to LCN 91.

They could also use their ABC News (US) catalogue too


#85

Very nice!
I’d probably include ACA and Today Extra in that bunch still.


#86

And pretty much lose all of the credibility that bunch would’ve had without those two trainwrecks :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#87

If its a Nine News channel, why would you do that???


#88

Wouldn’t both shows be classified as part of their news division?

Channel 7
Weekdays daytime 5am til 7pm
5:00am Seven Morning News
5:30am Sunrise
8:30am The Morning Show
11:00am 11AM
12:00pm The Chase UK

2:30pm The Daily Edition
3:30pm Seven News
4:30pm Baby Daddy (or The Simpsons)
5:00pm Wheel Of Fortune
5:30pm Close Analysis* (my concept would be a panel discussion series analysing the days events so far, regional networks could use this slot for local news programs, encore presentation around 11:30pm on main channel and 7pm on 7Two)
6:00pm Seven News
7:00pm Home And Away *

  • In AFL states (all except NSW/QLD), In event that AFL broadcasts prevents Home And Away from screening at regular time, Home And Away could assume the either the 6:30pm timeslot (shortening the News to 30 minutes) or 5:30pm timeslot (in place of Close Analysis with Close Analysis screening after the AFL). In WA on the weekdays that AFL is played at 7:30pm AEST, then the game would be offered live on 7Mate with a delayed telecast from 7:00pm.

Seven News (edition listed at 3:30pm) and Baby Daddy (or The Simpsons) could be switched around to be 3:30pm Baby Daddy and keep Seven News at 4:00pm.

  • I would make The Chase Australia a 2 night a week show, possible airing 7:30pm Friday and Saturday and possibly including an entertainment interlude, maybe a special guest artist possibly as a contestant or former contestant from a channel 7 produced talent show, providing that the rights for the format does not prevent this.

Other Variations and moves
Better Homes And Gardens would move to the 7:30pm Thursday time slot
The Chase Australia would air on 7Mate in AFL states at 7:30pm Friday and Saturday
Encore of the most recent episode of the slated 7:30pm program (eg MKR, House Rules etc) to air on 7Mate in AFL states at midday


#90

maybe ACA but surely not Today Extra given the advertorial content


#91

This was tried - it was called ONE. When Lachie Murdoch stuck his paws in, he turned it into the crap that ONE is now to protect the family assets. :angry:

I liked ONE - it had a lot of North American sports and the NBL.


#92

He’s out of the picture now so someone tell CBS and get the ball rolling again.


#93

Sadly I can’t see it happening. Even with the amount of resources CBS has, I can’t see them rebirthing One as a purely sports TV station.

What they could do is re-add some of the North American sports and up the local sports, maybe even go for some of the European football leagues. A game a week and the highlights shows, that’s what you’d need. Mix it in with some of the existing shows and you’d really have a male-oriented channel.

Your average bloke likes his sport, shit being blown up, even a little rumpy-pumpy. That’s be my sort of channel. :stuck_out_tongue:


#94

More chance of 7 using 7mate or 9 using 9Gem as 24/7 sports channels these days. I enjoyed One though, nice mix of AFL and niche sports.


#95

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)


#96

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

#97

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.


#98

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


#99

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