7mate’s first ever amendment

First it was GEM, now 7mate tweaks its line-up ahead of its channel launch.

Yesterday this site ran news of GEM’s first amendment before it had even hit screens.

Now 7mate has matched it, with a list of amendments ahead of its launch on September 25.

Some of these are minimal changes of episode changes and Consumer Advice changes, which are standard industry practice.

Deal or No Deal also gets a 5:30am screening on weekdays.

The most significant change is NBC Today show will now one hour less than planned, from 9-11am with Riptide to air at 11am.

More programming detail for 7mate is expected later today.

  1. @vinny : I hope so!

    I was just thinking of all my favourite 80s shows that I’d like to watch again & that was one on my list.
    I love those buddy-detective shows, Burn Notice is the only one that matches it now.

  2. I think Go and 7two had amendments before launch so it is just fine tuning all the channels, let’s just hope it is not a sign of things to come and amendments after launch are minimal unlike with Go.

  3. NBC Today will be airing on 7mate with a lot less commercials than in the US, so the bulk of the first three hours (before Kathy Lee and Hoda take over) should still be screened.

  4. The change means only half of weekday editions of NBC Today will be shown. If Seven is clever enough, it should screen the first two hours on Seven from 4am to 6am, with the last two hours on 7mate from 9am to 11am. Or better still, show the entire program from midnight to 4am on 7TWO.
