    • So according to you, we have “No Go!” (9Go!), “No Gem” (9Gem) and “No Life” (9Life). I think we are going to see a lot of jokes for 9Rush, which as you said loosely translates as “No Rush”.

      Personally, I don’t think it will be a slow TV channel.

    • “There are reports today Nine is planning to launch a new digital television channel featuring programs owned by Discovery Inc.” Which part of this did you not understand?

      • Foxtel also announced six ‘new’ channels in November and December last year, but they all replaced existing channels. So new does not necessarily mean in addition to existing channels. Would be disappointed if it replaced 9GemHD (given the amount of sports on it) which is what replaced Your Money.
