VH1 classic being replaced on 4 March ?!

Red Carpet

Re: VH1 classic being replaced on 4 March ?!

Thinus says it will be MTV Music 24. A channel with that specific name is currently only broadcast in the Netherlands. Guess we will have to wait and see what we get!

 

Octo-LNB to 24-1z/5.2 switches. Explora1 (Prim) & HDPVR 2P (Sec), Samsung 55" UA55F8500 Smart 3D LED TV, HDMI picture & audio via Onkyo TX-NR626
receiver. Explora 2 in bedroom, HDMI picture & audio to Samsung 32" UA32F5500 Smart LED TV. 100Mbps M-Web fibre (OpenServe).

In fairness to Thinus as well - sometimes he does deliver;

 

1. He mentions the channel has Rock content as well, so looks like only Alternative is still wanting... or maybe it is occasionally available, guess time will tell.

 

Well, Alternative is a sub-genre of Rock, so it's probably covered by that label.

2. I see he's also got a very interesting (to me anyway) new article about the M-Net group's challenges with getting the movies we think they easily get, including mention of the only real competition few of us know about.

You missed a bit, the article also reveals that BET, Comedy Central, MTV and MTV Base will also be upgraded to HD soon.

 

But I've found his articles too unreliable at times, surely MC would still prefer to announce directly to us?

@Cya_DStv1  , please can you expand further.

A trick I tried this morning may be the best way to generally check these things at the month ends, for anyone who's interested enough.

Do a Word search for "Important".

 

The only other mention is the new replacement News channel being launched sometime this year.

 

But, @Cya_DStv1  , if there are press releases available they would be highly appreciated.

I finally found the message on the Explora TV guide - at 00:55-01:00 this morning when hardly anyone would have been watching... Other airings shows a few more times it will be shown though. The guide for 4 & 5 March still shows the VH1 Classic programming.

 

@Cya_DStv1 - are you able to provide more info please? Which feed we will be getting etc?

Very interesting! I will most definitely keep an eye on this. I truly hope for MC's sake they don't mess this up and give us a local version - a bigger genre variety is sorely needed at this stage. At first glance, I think I will be happy if we get the exact UK version/feed although MTV Hits seems much better to me - including the official UK charts amongst other shows. Alternative/Rock still seems to be lacking though...

 

To be honest though, VH1 Classic must cost next to  nothing - they could just as well have kept it as well for those still enjoying it. It seems the new trend is to not add things unless it is replacing something else.

Many people weren't happy with the VH1 Classic's repetitive content years ago, although can't say now as no-one talks about it anymore and I hardly watch it.

 

Looks like MTV Music is a British channel, and actually quite an improvement re the lack of what we have been getting!

Unless it's going to be an African version, who knows then...

 

I did a few searches, they largely refer to older music as "throwback" and there was quite a lot of material.

 

 

Another channel I noticed is ending soon is 114 Zee BollyMovies.
