Well if these new channels are replacing Real Lives and Sky 2, it resolves the issue of having low rated channels not doing much but showing repeats as a placeholder.

I'd think NOW TV will also get these channels as part of the Entertainment Pass as well?

They're confirmed to come on Now TV along with Sky.

Probably Virgin Media as well, I personally do not see those channels under the same breadth and premium level as Atlantic does.

Could they close Universal and replace it with Sky Crime and pull out of the agreement with Viacom and launch Sky Comedy themselves and (as I'm sure they have already agreed in contracts) that Sky own the EPG slot so a Viacom owned Comedy Central would have to move down the EPG? As reported in the Channel 5 thread, Comedy Central is now reported to BARB as a Channel 5 channel and not Viacom as it used to be, so it seems something is going on.

Sky’s other channel brands include E!, SYFY, Pick and Challenge.

See how Universal Channel has not been mentioned.. and I could see it go, now

It'd make a lot of sense to close down Universal Channel too, since it's a "generic" channel
And now with the Sky's takeover by Universal, it becomes useless

You wouldn't mind them giving up on creating new idents. Worse though is that they seem just to be using the same three idents over and over, despite a large number being available.

Having taken part in a Viewback discussion, it seems that ITV are proposing to just swallow up the JK gap with what they already have.

Obviously it’s just an idea at this stage so nothing is set in stone, but they’re proposing to extend GMB to 9 and start This Morning at 10 with Lorraine in the middle.
There would also be a new News half hour at 6am with GMB starting at 6.30.

It’s a shame to just see the 9.25 swallowed up, but considering how poor the 9.25 replacements have been rating, I guess this is their only option.


It does sound interesting. If this was to happen and I know it is just an idea; when would this go live?

That could possibly work. Would certainly stop the complaints about Piers' rants before the news.


Have the news at 6, and then Piers can start ranting at 6.30.
