Foxtel dates: GO! 7TWO & ABC3
Cable viewers will get GO! and 7TWO at the end of November while ABC3 will be added to all subscribers from December 4th.
GO! and 7TWO will launch nationally on Foxtel cable on November 24th. Updated: 7TWO will be available on Foxtel Satellite in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane from the 24th November as well.
The launch date follows Kim Williams’ comments earlier this month that the channels would arrive by late November.
The two new channels will be on Ch 129 and 127 respectively.
By contrast, ABC3 will enjoy comprehensive coverage, to both cable and satellite viewers, nationally from its launch date December 4th (big tick).
Seven will also air to satellite viewers in Melbourne and Brisbane from November 15th, falling into line with satellite subscribers in Sydney (no changes to viewers in Adelaide and Perth).
Satellite viewers have no start-up date for GO! or 7TWO yet.
Meanwhile ONE remains available in SD to cable viewers and HD to cable subscribers who have the IQ2.
Foxtel airs the channels on satellite so long as networks pay the at-cost satellite fee.
