If Murdoch pulls out of Sky, then ITV can bid to take over Sky. They would rebrand the company as Sky just like CableTel did when it took over NTL and renamed the company as NTL.

Teleshopping gone from ITV2, 3 & 4!

I noted a few nights ago that teleshopping has gone from ITV2, 3 and 4 but ITV Nightscreen is still there.

Shame that the main ITV channel can't get rid of teleshopping.

Did Sky1’s version of Gladiators had male glads dressed like strippers?

In late 00s Sky1 had the revival of Gladiators, it wasn’t a patch on the ITV version but it had some male glads dressed like strippers. I fancied Goliath because he had the eye candy appeal, he had...

With the launch of Lifetime channel happening next month, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bio will close to make a way for this. Since the HD channel closed, Bio looks dead.

Which good songs should've been top ten?

My example would be Beastie Boys’ Fight For Your Right, it was the great song with the great video, it should’ve been top ten, let alone No 1, yet it stalled at #11.

Sky Sports: Game Changers

I stumbled the Sky Sports’ free broadcast on Sky 2 and it has the feel of Saturday morning kids TV. I think this is Sky’s attempt to return to kids TV, remember DJ Kat, Power Rangers, Pokémon.
