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.

I have already seen the awesome Walking Dead.

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.
