    Always one of my favorites, Match Game will live forever. At our house we always talk about who's alive and who has departed. We also subscribe to the Filipino international channels, and watching their version of "Hole In The Wall" is hilarious.

    I loved Playmania. But only with the original hosts. Mel, Shandi. Those were the good old days. Once they started switching the hosts around, that's when it went down hill.

    Interesting channel location, I wonder why they're moving it?

    It didn't move, they duplicated it. Its on both 233 and 309. What a waste.

    They should move G4 now. The only possible reason for them moving it to 310 from 354 was that they dropped the TechTV part and were no longer considered a news channel. Putting it next to GSN just because they are both about "games" never seemed right. Now that G4 is more of a mens channels it would probably fit better somewhere between 230-250 rather than being between Sleuth and ABC Family.

    It's just a mirror, doesn't take anymore bandwidth. 309 will probably go away in a couple weeks to allow folks to learn the new channel number.

    Just like the old QVC channel spot? (its still on both 275 and 317 a year later).

    QVC contracts for two different channel slots.
    Similar to the 101.

    As for GSN... not sure if it is going to be in two slots or not, but GSN is majority owned by DIRECTV (and why I can't play in some of their contets.. :( ), so it is possible that it is getting the multiple slot treatment just like the 101.

    I'm wondering if they'll move G4 to 234 to be next to the other two Comcast networks, Style and E!, and if they'll launch them in HD soon? Wouldn't that be nice?

    I wish GSN would put "Who Dares Wins" back on. It is an Australian game show and they only ran it for a short time. It was one of the best shows I've seen in a long time. A lot like Fear Factor but without the gross stuff. Pretty much stunts of all size too. Little funny things in a shopping mall to driving a car on and off a car carrier while moving.

    Their big finale stunt of each episode was a surprise to the participant. Someone would be nominated for a stunt by a friend, co-worker or family member. The crew shows up unannounced at their house at breakfast time and take them to the stunt. I actually saw a couple that were in another country. They picked them up and flew them to the stunt.

    Good ones too. Swimming with Aligators at an aligator farm, Rescuing someone from a stuck tram.

    Sorry I went on and on but that is one of the most fun shows I've seen and they only had it on a short time.

    It looks like this might have been a false alarm/news since where I got that info from now doesn't have it posted. I'm going to as a mod to please close this thread. Sorry - RAD

    GSN really needs to get the rights to old TPIRs from the 70s/80s. Didn't they used to air them a long time ago?

    I think it is fine.

    The channel did at least "duplicate" down to 233...
    Could be a pre-cursor to moving, or could simply being that they are now going to have it on two channels.

    So you see it in your guide? I don't see 233 in any of my STB's and I did a refresh on the web site and a reboot and still not there. If folks are seeing it guess I'll just wait and see if mine every gets the change. I just didn't want to put out info that might be incorrect since I didn't see it and the annoucement I saw was not gone.
