9 Digital

Channel 9 is setting up their new digital channel and it does look interesting on paper yet I feel that in reality it could be doomed to failure. This channel is going to be youth orientated, which is weird when you consider the lack of youth orientated programming currently shown on 9. What makes things worse is that they have just signed a $500 million deal with Warner Bros. I suspect that this will also feature content from the much talked about Real live action programming on Cartoon Network, which is currently being boycotted by most of CN’s viewers in the States. Perhaps these programs will be successful in Australia on 9HD because they won’t have the stigma of being live action shows on a network whose primary function is supposed to be to air animation, although I’ve heard the show that has kid psychics is particularly awful.

    Digging around the net a little, I’ve found out that the new channel GO!99 (how lame) will feature ‘youth’ orientated programming such as repeats of Sex and the City, because we all know that people in their mid-20s to late-30s are youth. In addition to this their will be shows such as Entourage and Gossip Girl, which have been featured on Foxtel for ages.
