  1. I’ve noted David in this article you mention 9GEM rather than 9GEMHD. This means 9 will cease 9GEMHD when the Ashes finishes? Such a shame really because I’ve been enjoying some of those afternoon shows, especially Antiques Roadshow in HD. The assumption here is both DOOL and TYATR are filmed in HD. So it will be back to watching programs through a fog. I’d be interested to know if there has been any lift in ratings for other programs since 9GEMHD was introduced.

  2. Days was last aired on Australian TV in 2009/2010 so they’re only doing a catch up from 2013 ? What about the other years, and the Catch Up episodes are not on the TV guide

  3. Although I dont watch these shows, it is good that they are sgowing “catch-up shows” (aka highlights from the previous months/years), for the fans out there.

  4. so DOOL catch up will be from 2013 to 2018 but YR will just be from march 2018 to October 2018?

    was hoping both shows would be 3 months behind but 6 and 8 months aren’t too bad
