Anybody heard about this?, i read about it weeks ago and forgot to post here.

C4 will be no more on Sky and Analogue!.

No more **** music!

It will be like old pre-2004 FOUR but with the likes of Family Guy etc, and more variety.

Finally a half decent Free to air channel.

Its not a new channel all they are doing is rebranding the old "C4" and changing their format

Actually, it's going back to the way the channel used to be from 1997 to 2003.

I used to watch it when it was "4" back in 2003 and it was all entertainment shows, which is what they are doing with FOUR

Wrong.

FOUR will take C42's place, so no analouge/sky, freeview only.

C4 will undergo another rebranding, with much less focus on mucic, kind of like MTV I guess.

No, FOUR is taking C4's place!!!

So C4 on analogue and channel 12 will no longer be c4, they will be FOUR. C4 is the one thats only gonna be on freeview, it's replacing C42.

C4 MOVES TO FREEVIEW PLATFORM IN EARLY 2011

Coinciding with the launch of FOUR in early 2011, C4 will replace C42 on the Freeview platform.

C4 will go back to its roots, playing a broad, cross-section of music and continuing its policy to play at least 30
percent Kiwi content.

Key C4 music shows like Video Hits, Homegrown and Biggest Records Right Now will remain in the schedule, and a new music show hosted by Drew Neemia and Shannon Ryan will launch on FOUR in the new year, which will re-broadcast on C4 each night in the primetime slot of 7.30pm-9.00pm.

Andrew Szusterman, Network Executive says: “Bringing C4 back to solely a music brand is a great result for music lovers. Fans of C42 will still be able to see their favourite alternative music videos as C42 will become a show itself on the channel.”

The final changeover date for the channel will be announced in the coming weeks.

When I saw you say 'no more bad music' I assumed that you meant you disliked the style of music being played. My bad.

I do dislike the music C4 plays. Thats why i'm happy i wont get C4 anymore, and will get FOUR instead.

We don't have freeview, and i only watch C4 for the ocasional episode of Family Guy.

let me get this straight, Analogue TV and Sky will no longer get C4, which is turning into an all music channel for freeview only, it is replacing C42.

FOUR is availbile on all platforms, including analogue, and is an entertainment channel, so there will be little, if any, music programs. This channel is replacing what C4 was turning into, an entertainment channel.

This. C42 isn't that bad - no ghey show hosts with 15 yr old girls ringing in requesting justin bieber.

Simpsons have never been on 4 before (correct me if im wrong) so it should be good to have that next to the likes of Family Guy, south park etc

Now, if they could get some sci-fi shows on, it might make it worthwhile.

Correct. The Simpsons originally aired on TV2 back in the early 90's (I have an old VHS that proves it), then ever since it has run on TV3. It also runs on SKY1 which is now BOX.

Sci-Fi is pretty good, but i much prefer the old school stuff like early Dr. Who, Thunderbirds, Joe 90, Captain Scarlet & The Mysterons etc..
