So they're launching A&E in HD only? That sucks. How many people even get the HD channels offered by Foxtel? I have the iQ2 without the pay TV HD channels (although I get HD free-to-air on Foxtel) and my grandparents have the same configuration- Foxtel HD without HD...

Interesting, it says 'Only on FOXTEL'. Austar customers getting the rough end of the stick again, genuine omission, or prematurely assuming the FOXTEL/Austar tee-up was approved?

Wouldn't read too much into it. The merger has been approved by the FIRB, so I'd say they're just assuming it's going ahead.

the A&E promos also have in very tiny font "not available to Austar customers"

Don't worry - they're used to missing out.

FX is going to be on channel 123 - the current Fashion TV on that channel will no longer be broadcast when FX starts.

Good. FTV is a waste of space.

This channel looks good. Looking forward to Hell on Wheels and Justified.

This is the opening of Fx from 26 February.



Here is some of the on screen elements including the watermark/s, sponsor notice, now showing and a general promo. All very integrated and slick with the main elements a very bold san serif heavily kerned with shadows.

FX AND FOXTEL SECURE FEAR THE WALKING DEAD EXCLUSIVELY

 

90 Minute episode to debut Express from the U.S. on FX only on Foxtel MONDAY AUGUST 24 AT 1.30PM AEST

 

FOX International Channels and Foxtel, alongside leading international distributor Entertainment One, proudly announced today the highly anticipated new series AMC's Fear the Walking Dead has found its Australian home and will premiere Express from the U.S. Monday 24 August at 1.30pm AEST on FX only on Foxtel.

 

Fear the Walking Dead will also be available to Foxtel subscribers with internet connected iQ set top boxes and via Foxtel Go on demand with Foxtel Anytime.

 

Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) have managed to assemble.  The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down.  A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
