New mystery, movie, sports channels to come

13th Street, The Style Network, Family Movie Channel, Eurosport, Showtime Drama, Starpics look set to be part of Foxtel's new suite of channels in November.

foxtel iq2Ahead of Foxtel’s press conference next week on its new channels and technology, the leaks have been trickling.

The leaks actually started back as far as June when a SneakPeek blog noticed a consumer survey conducting research on the proposed channels.

Last week there was Austar’s announcement of 28 new channels in its subscriber magazine. While the companies are separate, they share some channels, which left little doubt of the way Foxtel was heading.

On Monday the Knowfirst website listed a bunch of channel names in both SD, HD and +2 timeshift.

That was followed by an Optus TV website carrying further details on its channels, which it quickly removed. But not before the Media Spy website managed to snaffle the text first:
