It sounded live to me as there was a pause before she spoke and she sounded nervous

Remember that the announcer is also directing the channel. I'm sure that starting a new channel is nerve wracking for a transmission controller normally, without having to open a mic and say something on air too!

Don't know if this is just a preview, an error or a news update, but schedule is showing The Nine for 20:58 and then Still Game 2 minutes later at 21:00?

It's not a criticism I was just explaining why I thought it sounded live and not rehearsed.

Makes sense to do a preview on opening night.

Launch night should be a statement about what the channel has on offer.

I think they are doing a great job tonight.

Enjoyed that first 40 mins. Starting on a Sunday, which I doubted, has certainly enabled them to do a shakedown and some specials. Reporting Scotland was full of the channel too, not unexpectedly. It seems that Lord Hall might be in Pacific Quay for this opening tonight too.

Will it be live like the announcements tonight or prerecorded?
