Michael Bodey at the Oz says that Showtime is expected to ditch Showtime Greats in favour of genre-based stations, like Action, Premiere, Comedy and Drama, with the first two showing in HD. Meanwhile, the Movie network channels will add a few more channels as well.
Fox8 and Fox Sports 1 & 2 are expected to go HD. Sci-Fi will be getting a timeshift channel, but there’s no mention of an HD version. Damn.
Foxtel plan on announcing their new channel lineup in October, so until then all this is unconfirmed. Which is just as well – no HD Sci-Fi is just plain sad.
