Henry tells us about the joys of hosting late night after many years in breakfast in NZ and Australia. With an election just weeks away in New Zealand, Henry talks about having politicians on his show and his politics. "They call me a rabid right winger … I'm not rabid!"

TV1 to disappear from Foxtel platform

One of Foxtel's highest-rating channels is believed to be facing closure at the end of the year.
The chief executive of the TV1 partnership Peter Hudson is reported to have informed staff today about the loss of a carriage deal with Foxtel.
The owners of the channel, and sister channel SF, are CBS Studios International, NBC Universal and Sony Pictures Television International. They were unable to negotiate a satisfactory carriage deal with Foxtel to replace their current agreement which expires in December 2013 and both TV1 and SF could face closure.
A spokesperson for Foxtel told Mediaweek this evening:
"Channel agreements regularly come up for renegotiation and our current agreements with TV1 and SF are due to expire at the end of this year. We are currently in discussion with several of our content suppliers to determine new arrangements and will continue to maintain both a replacement general entertainment channel and a dedicated science fiction channel on the Foxtel platform. 
"We are confident that, as a result of those discussions, our most popular content will continue to be available to our subscribers. More details will be provided once new agreements have been finalised."

In the subscription TV ratings for last week, TV1 had a channel share of 2.3% and was beaten only by Fox Footy and Fox Sports 2 which was screening the Ashes. SF had a channel share of 0.7% which was higher than all the Foxtel movie channels except Premiere.

Boy o boy foxtel is in trouble that's 4 channels gone if you add the + 2 channels,I'm a foxtel subscriber and was very disappointed the way they handled the movie channels now scifi and tv1.
I gather they will find sufficient quality replacements or will they drastically start reducing their highly priced packages?
