rlevis: Wasn't Juice TV free to air on UHF before Sky even started, or perhaps I'm thinking of some other music channel.

Originally it was called 'Max the Music Channel' which started in 1994 and operated out of the 601 Digital Video building.  Then it got sold off I think and renamed Juice.  And yes, it was broadcast on UHF in glorious snowy-vision due to the under-powered transmitter.

I thought Max TV and Juice were totally separate operations? I seem to recall Max going off the air in 1997, around the time TVNZ launched MTV free-to-air - which means they would both have been running at the same time for at least three years?

I thought Max was relaunched as Juice but it's a long time ago now, and you may be right.

I remember the summers day.I had DX reception of Auckland MAX tv and the Maori channel, and tvnz card (low power test signal via sky tower) down here in Nelson. The Tab channel was even good enough to have error free teletext.
