  1. I wouldn’t mind watching Merlin again but it is impossible to watch anything serial. The Twilight Zone, assuming it’s the classic 1960s version, is the only thing I might watch. Would be easier to find the good episode if it was streamed.

  2. I tried watching this last night, but there are endless ad breaks with no ads, meaning looooooong periods with a title card promising that “10Play will be right back after this ad break”. Here’s an idea – if there are no ads to play, how about not going to a break. Nobody is going to watch Pluto TV if it keeps pausing for dead air. 10Play have been running most of these channels since January so why haven’t these bugs been ironed out yet?

  3. I came across the MTV Pop channel a while ago and really like it. I cannot believe that a network hasn’t done a 24/7 music channel before. I hope they don’t ruin it with host segments in between clips. Just back to back clips and a few ads thrown in but not too often.

    1. I don’t know if that’s better or worse than getting the same ads every break on 10play.
      Do advertisers think it’s beneficial to have that kind of saturation ?

  4. I didn’t think that I would be praising Network 10 – or using 10 Play anytime soon – but here we are. Cannot complain about 24 hours of Twilight Zone!

  5. I’m not sure when, but about 20 of these channels have been available for a while, as I’ve flicked between South Park, MTV music ones, Merlin and some Nick ones.

      1. Last time I left the Prisoner channel on, they were playing episodes in reverse order. In the 3 or 4 episodes I left on, I saw a prisoner get released in the 1st one, then that same prisoner still inside on the 2nd one, then the 3rd on she wasn’t there until brought in for induction half way through the 3rd episode I left on.
