Nine releases Go! schedule

go_channelDetails of the schedule for the first week of Nine’s new digital channel Go! has been published online on MediaSpy and TV Tonight.

The new channel is set to launch at 6.30pm on Sunday 9 August.

Go! will be an entertainment-themed channel with titles including Gossip Girl, Weeds, The Hills, Moonlight, Fringe, Entertainment Tonight, TMZ, Survivor, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Eleventh Hour, Ellen and The Bachelor. Some of these shows have already been tried on Nine and withdrawn from the schedule but are more suitably themed for Go’s younger target audience.

Comedies include Big Bang Theory, The Nanny, Seinfeld, Just Shoot Me and classics including The Flintstones, Bewitched and I Dream Of Jeannie.

Overnight, Go! will feature music videos with The ARIA Music Show.

Other programs to feature on Go! include Australia’s Funniest Home Video Show, stripped five nights a week at 6.00pm, and Dance Your Ass Off which was pulled from Nine’s schedule after only one outing last week.

Nine Network chief David Gyngell is aiming for Go! to capture around a three per cent market share which would rank it higher than Network Ten’s digital channel One which launched in March.
