VH1 classic being replaced on 4 March ?!

Romance

Re: VH1 classic being replaced on 4 March ?!

VH1 was my favourite "play in the background while not watching TV" channel; much like leaving a radio playing without specifically listening except when something catches the ear. Content was great!

 

I have sampled the replacement channel quite extensively but most of the content just grates on my nerves.

 

For me, I've lost yet another channel!! Smiley MadSmiley Frustrated

I haven't been watching yet, and for now the EPG just lists the same generic entry throughout the day - but that at least details some of the genres;

A bit off-topic sorry.  I am happy about any HD upgrade even though Comedy Central is the only one of these I sometimes watch - and not even that often - but I would have thought something like NatGeo or even news channels should be a much higher HD priority.

No press release in dstv.com's spotlight section either

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!

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.
