We have a new TV Channel – GO! is here, content goes live on 9 August

By johnboy - 5 August 2009 27

If you re-scan your digital tuner you’ll notice that a new channel has popped up on number 88 here in Canberra.

It’s the eagerly anticipated “GO!”, operated by Channel Nine, which seem to be where they plan to put all the shows that might actually get me watching that network for more than local news.

From the blurb site:

    GO! will be bringing the young, and young at heart, more choice and entertainment than ever before.

    Later this year, GO! will broadcast the most anticipated new show of the US television season Vampire Diaries.

What’s Your opinion?

I am outraged by this.

Is it a HD channel? It is not coming up on the rescan of my SD box but I could be doing something wrong. It does not seem to mention it being HD on the Go website though.

HD and Go are separate channels. The HD channel though has been taken of the air to be “rebuilt”. I would suspect that Go and WIn SD will be stand along channels and the HD channel will simulcast programs from each channel in HD at different times.

Also looks like Chuck – a pretty funny series will be shown at some stage….I’m kinda surprised no networks picked it up earlier.

What really surprises me is how quickley Ch 9 / Win have brought this new channel online – it was only announced a couple of months back and it’s up and running. Compare that with Channel 7 / Prime and 10 / Southern Cross’ efforts and it puts them to shame. (and I hate giving Win credit for anything. I believe their local news is still broadcast in 4×3 for most of Australia…)

I really need to get with the times and get digital TV stuffs… 😛

I’d be liking this channel I think, and I want Ch10 One for F1, hell I’d even like to be able to get ABC2 for when I miss Spicks and Specks.

The Wire is excellent: very good to see a channel in Australia showing it.

This popped up in my digital tuner the other day without any user intervention, but if that’s typical programming… oh dear.

WooHoo Survivor!!!

Weeds went wierd. I’d watch Curb Your Enthusiasm, the rest is crap.

More interested in The Wire and Weeds.

Any word on whether TranAct TV will be carrying it?
