Of course they no longer own the papers either, having sold them to the Mirror.
Interesting that it seems Channel 4 can use their own episodes, but Channel 5 would have to have re-aquired them from Endemol, is there some sort of difference in the rights agreements? I know when Challenge showed Countdown a few years back, they had to acquire it via Channel 4, not ITV.
I wonder why they would have chosen MTV rather than 5Star, their 5 branded youth orientated channel.
Yeah, doesn't make sense picking a satellite channel over a Freeview one. This isn't a big new US drama they're talking about, it's just reruns of a Channel 5 show.
Rylan’s done a couple of announcements on Channel 4 today as well - complete with the iconic “please do not swear!”.
