I agree @Jason+Golding it seems very odd especially that stream and glass are the future


Satellite still has millions more users than Glass/Stream though, and a new channel would presumably be keen to hit the biggest group of potential viewers first, particularly as their financing is likely to depend on that.

Rewind TV probably wouldn't work very well on Stream at the moment anyway as they don't appear to have any series links in place.

Re: Rewind TV

Well I've reset my Sky Q box but still can't access Rewind TV, I either get the blue screen technical fault or a very heavily pixilated screen with small areas of picture but otherwise grey screen. Every other channel on the box is fine so I assume it's a frequency problem and Rewind is such a weak signal I can't lock in on it......bloody annoying !

That would be up to the channel owners: negotiating a whole additional set of distribution rights to content for what's realistically a very small potential audience probably isn't their highest priority.

 

Note that Rewind TV here is not the same operation as the channel of the same name in the US which has much greater resources.

There are lots of other (mostly minor) channels on the same frequency including

164 Blaze

361 Now 70s

362 Now 80s

665 Gems TV

668 Ideal World

 

Do you have problems with them too? If so it is likely to be a dish alignment fault and require an engineer visit, if you want it fixed.

Rewind TV line up

Since that Rewind TV channel has started recently, what shows do you think we could see fill a Saturday Morning line up? Since it's mainly British stuff on the channel, I think something like "Rainbow" or "Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings" would easily fill 10 minutes of the slot, both being relatively short shows (Rainbow is the only one to actually be 10 minutes long despite the odd occasional 20 minute episode around Christmas)

Re: Rewind TV line up

Or maybe something like Granada's "Once Upon a Time...." with Peter Davison, or Yorkshire's "Ragdolly Anna" with Pat Coombs and the legendary work of future Ragdoll Productions founder Anne Wood
