I have to agree this change over is in disarray, its Freeview platform is awful, it's Virgin platform is falling apart I dont understand what they're doing. Why are there doing a launch on the other two better channels which most people on freeview will be unable to view it?
Has anyone actually watch Sony channel of late? It has movies which are weekly rotation on sony Movie channel, its not a great channel ...
I haven't kept an eye on the channel, but I have checked the listings. The bulk of the programming is old BBC One drama, paranormal programming that has found a home on TruTV, and films that have been repeated aeons on the Sony Movie Channel.
There is little pay TV value that can be attributed with the Sony Channel, and with its impending demise, saying it'll be missed is an understatement.
As for the Crime Channel, there are now rumblings that True Crime will morph into a second Sony Crime channel according to posters on Digital Spy.
