You mean April 2009 on channel 10? Not April 2010! Smile

For a preview you could probably look at Foxtel's online EPG:

This will probably finally make my decision to get sky.

CC was probably the channel I watched the most when I was holidaying in the states. Watching the daily show followed by the colbert report is just a perfect way to enjoy the evening :)

 Yay!   We already get the daily show on C4,  but bring on the Colbert report (which, IMO, is better than TDS)

Have watched this channel in Oz.  Definitely a step forward.  Does this coincide with the new satellite coming on line?  If it does will that mean more HD?
Wonder when the next price increase will come......

Considering the ratio of good shows to "OMG HOW CRAP IS THAT" shows on the Sci-Fi channel you're not far wrong!

oh yeah, i got the innuendo :)  but still, you make a fair point even if in jest.  there are a lot of very very bad sci-fi originals that should never have made it to air.  it would be nice to get some classic re-runs though on a dedicated channel
