Nine releases GO! schedule

Fringe4Nine has released its new schedule for GO!, its youth channel set to begin on August 9th.

With its mix of mostly US shows it will be a chance for television fans to soak up missing titles, or sample favourites they have only ever heard about.

Many of the US programmes such as Fringe, Gossip Girl, Moonlight, The Big Bang Theory, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Eleventh Hour begin from their pilot episode.

Additional titles that have not received any earlier press include TMZ at 11am / 7:30pm weeknights, and The ARIA Music Show to run from 1am – 7am daily.

With its 12 hour block programming, many evening titles will screen with a next day repeat, as per pay television models (alas prime time repeats in the day are from GO! not Nine).

    Looks good, a good alternative.

    Can’t believe GO! have left out these titles:

    Dawson’s Creek / Home Improvement (If 7 does not have the rights) / The Kill Point / Hot Seat / Two And A Half Men / 20 to 01 / Australía’s Perfect Couple / The Farmer Wants A Wife / Hi-5 / Humphrey / The View / McLeod’s Daughters / Sea Patrol

    And much much more

    And how about some Nine!

  2. Am I correct in assuming this GO! channel is only available for viewing by those who live in capital cities? Again those of us in the bush miss out. At the rate things are going analog TV will stop transmitting in the bush before the infrastructure is put in place for digital TV broadcasts.

  3. Looks good, a good alternative.

    Can’t believe they have left out these titles:

    Family Matters
    Golden Girls (If 7 does not have the rights)
    Perfect Strangers (god I loved this show as a kid)
    Married With Children
    Texas Walker Ranger
    Freaks & Geeks
    Fresh Prince
    Early Edition
    Third Watch

    And how about some The Wonder Years Nine!

    When GO is on Channel 88, the HD loop will be reinstated with the WIN/NBN HD service reinstating to Channel 80. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Nine doing an hour News next year to match “Funniest Home Videos” on GO with “A Current Affair” to move to 7pm to match Ten’s 7pm Project. It’s common knowledge that Nine is a fan of of News. At 6pm, I’m tipping most viewers will choose Shelley Craft over “Nine News-ACA” / “Seven News-TT”.

    New channel;, new shows, new formats, new era. All of them in one night. Works better. Agreed. I thought the point getting an entertainment channel was to erase people’s memories of the Nine News/Today Show overkill allowing GO to start fresh with the brand new format. It was a wasted exercise, but in hindsight one that is unlikely to have any negative long-term consequences.

  5. @ sam, someone correct me if im wrong but it sounds as if GO! will be replacing winhd meaning that none of nines programming will available in hd similar to when ONEHD replaced tenhd

  6. @neon kitten yes one of the purposes of music video’s are to sell albums but im sure you would agree that they are entertainment regardless and more enjoyable to watch rather than informercials. i do agree though that it ridiculous that infomercial are counted as programming rather than ad’s as a way to get around advertising limits.

  7. oh crap. shows that were originally slated for 7.30 ( Survivor, Sarah Connor, Gossip Girl ) are now slated for 8.30. which means they will more than likely be clashing with shows I’d want to watch on the main networks. What is TMZ?

  8. Neon Kitten

    @mac: well, music videos indeed are ads – that’s their intended purpose. That they happen to have artistic worth much of the time is a happy coincidence 🙂

    @Andrew: no, they don’t count as advertising – the point I was trying to get at, really, was that not even the obviously-a-half-hour-ad infomercials don’t seem to count as advertising either.

    And yes, APRA etc royalties are collected for video clip playback anywhere. Presumably the networks have a deal with APRA similar to the ABC’s to make it affordable.

  9. So what does this mean for regional viewers who watch Footy Classified and The AFL Footy Show on WIN HD? Will we just not get to see them anymore?

  10. buddy, I assume CSI is on Friday and Saturday nights because Nine assumed you young’uns go out partying on a Friday and Saturday night? Maybe not!
