Now that we have the Paramount channel coming maybe we will get an oldies  channel for us who like old  classic tv shows  from the  early sixties like  The Rifleman , Branded, and old shows  getting  a dusting off  the shelfs  like greats like Thriller, Armchair Theatre,  General Hospital, Crown Court, Within These Walls,  and Australian  classic  soaps like the Young Doctors.Im  sure the broadcasters would get good  viewing  figures.We all have a favorite old show and oldies first run movies on a tv channel on Sky

Why has motors tv been temporarily removed and when will it return?

New Viewer

Yes why has motorsport tv been removed? The channel number 429 doesnt even exist anymore.

How come there was no notice of this given anywhere?

Morning all,


That was a sudden decision made by the channel. You can contact them here for more information (contacts at the bottom of the page).
