Have seen listings in TV & Satellite Week...

Is it likely to come to Sky?

Apologies if it's already been asked

You mean abc1?

Probably, I should think it'll hit Sky at some stage though. But at the moment, it's one up for DTT and Cable.

What's wrong with 8 Simple Rules, I think ABC1 is a great channel! I think you dont have any taste in quality entertainment!

Home Improvement is a long time favourite of mine.

8 Simple Rules seems fine, if a little bit of a cliche(accent) - although the blonde daughter does make things a little more interesting.

Unhappily Ever After has never been shown on British TV before. It may be a poor rip off of MWC, but Nikki Cox looks good.

Absolutely. As I said above ... it's all CRAP.

And anyway - surely if ABC1 does launch on Sky, it'll only be a matter of time before we get ABC1+1?!!!! (Yippee, I don't think ...)

ISTR ABC stated they would be coming to the sky platform round Easter time. As they will be an established broadcaster by then, it probably wont need much testing, just switch the stream into the uplink station, check the quality of the downlink for a few daysto ensure no problems, and away they go.

They will end up on Sky eventually - the lure of over 7 million potential extra households will force them onto it.

Yes, of corse you are right. Good shows like 8 simple rules, home improvement, the geena davis show, mad about you, empty nest, nurses, sports night, general hospital and moon lighting. You have freeview. What do you enjoy watching on free view. Top up tv sampler? idiot
