9Rush will hit the ground running wth brand new Top Gear at 7pm Sunday April 5 on Channel 96.
The series kicks off with Freddie Flintoff, Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness testing cars in the searing heat of Ethiopia.
The new male-skewing adrenaline channel is a joint venture between Nine and Discovery and is built around “themed nights.”
Sunday: Best of British Motoring (Top Gear, Million Dollar Car Hunters, Salvage Hunters)
Monday: Buried Treasure (Gold Rush, Bearing Sea Gold)
Tuesday: Survival (Man vs Wild, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, Naked & Afraid)
Wednesday: Rust to Riches Cars (Diesel Brothers, Misfit Garage, Kindig Customs)
Thursday: Outlaw Cars (Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman, Street Outlaws)
Friday: Cops (Cops UK, Live PD)
Saturday: Off the Grid Living (Homestead Rescue, Alaskan Bush People)
“Discovery produces this kind of content in very clear themes, so it was easy to group the content up and create thematic nights,” said Geoff Dyer, Nine’s Director of Network Scheduling.
