More details ready to GO!
As more details emerge on GO!, so far it's beginning to sound hotter than Nine.
More information emerged on GO! in the last week when critic Andrew Mercado told MediaWeek about some of the programming plans he had seen as part of his chat for A Current Affair.
Sunday night is sitcoms and movies, Monday includes male-skewed reality such as Dog the Bounty Hunter and Bad Lads Army; Tuesday is female-skewed reality such as Survivor, The Bachelor and Bachelorette; Wednesday night is Sci-Fi; Thursday is Gossip Girl, The Hills; Friday and Saturday is aimed at CSI when the target audience is out.
The programming is designed to win audiences that attract a differ from Nine, such as female dramas on Thursday while Nine has its Footy Shows.
Updated: The channel will be designed on a 12 hour block system. Prime time viewing will be aired the following day on GO! daytime, with some limitations.
As GO! must still adhere to classification rules, some programmes will not be able to re-run during the day.
Daytimes will also have classic entertainment including The Flinstones, The Jetsons, Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie.
After a soft opening in August, the main launch will follow with The Vampire Diaries, expected to be in October.
Shows that do not attract an audience on Nine will be shifted to GO! and continue uninterrupted.
The trend to on-sell shows to Foxtel and other broadcasters will no longer continue.
