Live Sport currently seen on GEM will be moved to GO! as part of Nine’s rebranding of its channels.
When Nine becomes a high definition channel and LIFE launches from November 26, GEM will no longer be an HD channel and resume its female-skewing content.
In contrast GO! will be the home of more male-skewing content, meaning Live Sport, such as “over-runs” from Nine broadcasts, will be included.
Other tidbits emerging from Nine’s recent Upfronts:
- House Husbands new cast member…. will be a new husband.
- Love Child storylines will head into the Vietnam War
- This Time Next Year will air in 2017 not 2016, because it takes at least a year to film the subjects involved.
- Australia’s Got Talent to film at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Melbourne (may not be the only venue).
- The next Block site purchase in Melbourne is in ‘final negotiations.’
