Praise the Gods! It looks like the rumour that Channel 7 was planning on calling their second digital channel “Channel Mate” was just that – a rumour. Today they confirmed that the second channel will be called 7Two, will be broadcast on channel 72 (of course) and will commence airing on November 1 from noon.
According to MediaHunter, the new channel will air The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Murphy Brown and new episodes of The Jay Leno Show five nights a week, with theme nights and family programming featuring heavily.
Of course, this announcement leaves us wondering – exactly what is Channel Mate then? Could it be a universal remote-like device like I guessed?
