They should have given that a real bang. You'd swear that was something from a channel wind-down as they were closing for good.

PS. Please don't give that bellend James Kavanagh airtime.

Jesus that promo would make you want to forget it quickly. Awful cover of that song.

Saturday Line-Up:

VM2: 6pm Poirot 7pm Marple
VM3: 5pm Poirot 6pm Ireland's Got Talent (r) ... 9pm Midsomer Murders 12:00 Britain's Got Talent (r)

Sunday:
VM2: 5pm The X Factor
VM3: 5pm Doc Martin 6pm Heartbeat 7pm Poirot

It's hard to distinguish what channel is which. The old 3e is definitely dead, with be3 spreading out over 2 channels. Poirot over the two distinctly shows this.

When 3 news were covering Limericks homecoming this evening they made sure they got the Virgin Media promo. They said about workers in Limerick getting off early to go to the homecoming like staff at Virgin Media's store in Limerick got off early.

Only TV3 appears to have got the transitional idents - 3e and Be3 still using their regular idents. They have promotional break bumpers with their new logos, but they don’t transition between the old and new logo like TV3’s does.

Mind you it’s most important for TV3 - because right now people know you dial 3 (or 103) for TV3. But their new logo is the word “one”, breaking the link between brand and EPG position.

I know they say people don't like change,I usually embrace it but I can't see one positive from this new re brand. Even the color indents I dislike. I think it is a very stupid move putting News at 8 on TV3/VM1. Take the Thursday for example, second episode of Emmerdale on at 8.30 instead of 8, I know this household will switch to UTV HD or ITV HD instead as we have free to air.

If I had to draw one positive, looking at the schedule for Sunday Sept 2nd, it looks like Sunday AM airs on VM1 and is not repeated on VM2 or VM3.

That's why I've said earlier VM1 should be removed from the no.3 slot. VMtv to be repositioned at ch.no 5,6 and 7 (keep them together) EPG 3 to be used for RTE Jr.

TV3 don't have any official special coverage available for the Pope's visit this weekend. It appears that the standard 5:30 news bulletin during the weekends will be sufficient along with some token coverage on Saturday AM & Sunday AM. If you want to go to see the Pope's visit on TV here over the two days. RTÉ will be the best place for it & maybe TG4 might give some coverage for the two days in Irish too.

New Virgin Media One promo I don’t think I saw Red Rock, music is cranberries but you’d think that would improve the dismalness of the first one.

It’s far too corporate IMO, VM2 & VM3 may get drowned in nothingness.

Rte definitely have the best coverage as well as extended six one and a slightly longer 9 and 1 o'clock news.
Bryan dobson will be presenting coverage of the pope in ireland

When the Pope arrive we'll be on our best behaviour.

Full coverage on one channel I think is enough. I'm guessing RTE are paying a good bit to broadcast various events surrounding the visit, and would probably rather or insisted exclusivity over it.

Maybe we can take the Pope talk elsewhere unless it’s specifically to do with TV3
