Not a huge loss, but used to occasionally enjoy watching women parade around semi-naked while having my toast and coffee at 5.30am.  Channel 66 seems to have disappeared.  Was this published anywhere?  (In all likelyhood yes, I don't spend a lot of time staying abreast of what come and goes on Sky.)

Thanks for the link Lennon.  Hopefully I won't get so desperate that I need to use it.

I was curious about that as well since I couldn't find it on the channel list anymore. Checked Twitter, it's apparently been dropped as of 1 May due to ratings.

Did anyone see the 3D Fashion weekend?
First broadcast 3D on Sky? Oh well, it's gone, can't say it interested me in the slightest.

What is Fashion TV?
Quite possibly why it doesn't exist anymore...

Never understood that channel. Did not seem to advertise new fashion lines or products but rather was a random montage of catwalks and parties with no point.

I think Sky might have removed it, then put it back may 1st on a different channel, wonder if TelstraClear will put it back once they realise that.

Basically its a channel that shows whats happening in the fashion scene around the world and presents the different designers collections which is good for people that like fashion. You do have to kind of know who is doing what, so it might seem a bit random to some. I have noticed that when the collections are being shown there can often be some good music as well.

I noticed that the epg had stopped updating for a week now and didn;t even bother to check the channel... Guess I won;t miss it too much but as OP mentions, there were occasionally some pretty good bits (pun intended)

Just checked the tv guide at http://www.skytv.co.nz/ and Fashion TV is not listed there. Has skytv actually confirmed they removed Fashion Tv or is there a bug with skytv's systems?
