Just not cricket on GEM
New Update: GEM drops Test Cricket simulcast after all.
Nine has pulled it’s simulcast of the First Test: Australia v England planned for GEM for tomorrow, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, to be replaced by various reruns of The Nanny, Sea Patrol, Secret Millionaire, McLeod’s Daughters and similar programming.
UPDATE 1: Nine had the First Test: Australia v England listed in schedules for tomorrow, but as readers have noted, this was an error. The amendment is actually a correction of GEM schedule rather than dropping of HD simulcast. Apologies for any confusion.
UPDATE 2: Yep Cricket is now out of GEM schedule Thursday 25, Friday 26, Saturday 27. Was right after all….
GEM pulled Rugby Leage Four Nations from GEM last weekend.
GEM also didn’t broadcast Australian Masters last week.
When Nine announced the launch of GEM in September its Press Release said:
GEM will be a mix of new content, classic comedies, cherished drama series, all-time favorite movies, and all of Nine’s sport coverage in high definition.
High definition sport will be seen on GEM until the digital switchover in December 2013.
