  1. Hope MTV gets relaunched and becomes MTV Hits on channel 808. They already have the music shows just get rid of the entertainment shows from 808. The Foxtel Box Office Preview channel needs to go perhaps MTV can replace it. TMF is another new music channel that hasn’t been launched on Foxtel and Austar yet. TMF needs to be launched on the same channel as it was launched on Optus. Channel 812.
