Yes, I saw it on SD!

EDIT: The Computer and SD STB are 2m apart! Explaining why I was quick.

1 second I didn't feel like getting up, next I had all the energy in the world.

Guess I missed the invitation to this party... So you are saying there is a HD only movie tonight or is it something else?

I saw the Logo for 7 HD, it was the normal 7 logo, with HD written on a Green Diamond shape.

Interesting, is this a Sydney only thing since Melbourne has scheduled Criminal Minds, Boston Legal and In Case of Emergency - all of which are in HD. I hope they don't take of HD shows to do a HD only something else.

WTF!?!?! :angry:

Bloody channel seven don't even list their "special channel" on their own website/tv guide.

Not only are Boston (to which I've become rather attached, now I've finally started watching it) and "In Case" still listed, their own Yahoo7 tvguide says tonight's "hot pick" is on ... Nine! :lol:

A Member on Knowfirst who is from Melbourne also saw the ad, so it's at least Sydney and Melbourne.

I can only hope that since Perth got Seven's HD months late, we'll get this debacle late too.

Or is that too much to hope?

If they do replace HD shows with some FlyByNight stupidity, they really are clowns! :angry:

I take it this "25th hour" thing is a movie?

If so, I wonder whether Seven have made another of their famous half-baked "new exclusive lineups" - like the "Seven's Wedsnesday Night Movies!" which lasted, what, two weeks? Tops.

Clowns!

Advertised in Brisbane as well. I saw the ad and went searching, nothing anywhere about this!!
How are they meant to attract viewers with only an hours notice?

Looks like they wanted to be the first regardless. Thanks for the confirmation about differing states, it just confirms this is a bad idea to me. Why take off HD programs to put a movie on? I actually just got asked if I could record the film later tonight which unfortunately I can't since it is HD only. I am not too sure this is a good thing any more.

Can only assume they kept it quiet so as not to tip off the competition. Attract viewers by word of mouth perhaps, I mean we started spreading the word quick enough.

Sounds like they're trying to jump the gun on Ten and Nine so they can brag about being "first".

Not a good idea, Seven - you'll annoy those wanting Boston Legal in HD (repeat though it is) and confuse people who don't know what's going on and don't see the programming changes in the guide.

I would hope that networks think carefully about how they schedule these extra HD channels. Removing HD runs of prime-time shows, leaving them SD-only, would NOT be a welcome thing at all.

It's definitely 7 in '07 ;)

Thanks for the refresher, Trigg.


So ... let me get this straight - Seven are dropping regular HD programming to screen a movie in HD, starting at 10:30pm.

In other words, they are dropping watched shows in the hopes that people record a replacement movie.


Seven ... you've only got yourselves to blame...®
