Your dream TV network


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.

Hmm. My dream network.

For a start, would be channel 25, ABC Local.
Incorporating community TV under the ABC banner, as well as mixing in a time shifted (and more localised) ABC News at 6/8:30, would give the community broadcasters a bit more stability in the current climate. Would also include some state/territory parliament discussion and proceedings, and some state sports leagues.
This, coupled with the obligatory shutdown Fishcam, set to ABC Local Radio, would give it just enough of an edge.

Secondly, and probably more importantly, I would also suggest a channel 35, SBS Asia.
This would provide a dedicated channel for everything from Korean Dramas and Japanese Gameshows to Bollywood movies, giving a free to air choice for many Asian community members.
A feature of this channel would be a news service geared toward the community (at 7pm) providing an Asian view on current news, as well as a 7:30-style current affairs show, giving a different perspective.
Tie-in’s would be made with SBS PopAsia as needed to provide extra content.

My final suggestion would be Channel 40, a fourth commercial network, to rival 10, 10Peach, and 9Go, and willing to push the boundaries with a youthful focus.
Modelling it somewhat similar to E4 and BBC3 in the UK, with a bright, fun and playful mix of entertainment, news, and music, as well as Big Brother, John Safran, and similar kinds of barrier pushing, would keep them on their toes.
Channel 41 (as a complementary channel, similar to Fusion in the US, and a slight competitor to SBSVice) would be a little more news oriented, but also contain time shifted and companion show content.
