It's their 20th birthday today, and they're planning a livestream (they've skipped Wednesday for this) today. Still no sign of return. What a way to celebrate your 20th milestone, eh?


By the way, happy 20th TV-Ark. I had a TV site at the time and it became far too time-consuming. But I remember TV-ark starting and now I feel old!

A TV Zone by any chance?

That's the one!

And, I've just realised that it is available here: http://rickyb.fortunecity.ws/tvzone/index.html.

I had no idea that it was online as part of the FortuneCity archive project. It looked good in 1999. Honestly.

When you see it "live" in the stream, it looks a lot fresher. Sadly, it was also hinted tonight that the launch could spill into 2019. Nevertheless, the sneak preview looks very exciting.

Yeah, it will be worth the wait once it launches

I agree wholeheartedly. For me TV ARK is one of the best websites online. As somebody who grew up in the 1980's and 90's and remember the launch of CH4, Sky and the ITV 1993 franchises in some detail its a source of memories. Plus as someone on the autistic spectrum its a wonderful tool.

Like many websites of this ilk TV ARK not a professional undertaking. Its done for love and it should be respected for that. Yes I miss it and am looking forward to its return.

Any moaners should either put up or shut up.

Happy Birthday TV ARK and here's to the next 20 years.

Should have mentioned CH5 too Very Happy

The URL change happened quite a while ago, and as mentioned earlier in the thread, they've hit delays because one of the staff had a change of work shifts and can't commit as much time to working on TV Ark. They've said they're trying to aim for a launch before Christmas, but admitted that a launch after new year looked inevitable.
