– PREMIERE SPECIAL ABOUT THE WORLD’S LARGEST CRUISE SHIP

Tonight’s Mighty Ships special tells the inside story of the maiden voyage of the world’s greatest cruise ship – the Oasis of the Seas.

It took $1.4 billion to build the largest, most revolutionary cruise ship in the world… but will she live up to the hype? The stakes are huge. When Royal Caribbean’s much-anticipated Oasis of the Seas embarks on her maiden voyage, she will be packed with over 5000 passengers who want to be the first to sail on the largest, most revolutionary cruise ship on Earth!

Oasis is so big, her homeport of Port Everglades Florida has been re-developed at a cost of millions to accommodate her ground-breaking size! At 360m long, she’s five times the size of the Titanic. But size comes with a price and demands space-age technologies to help operate and navigate her through the shallow waters of the Caribbean. Even better (or worse), how does a cruise ship load and unload 5000 passengers at ports-of-call and stay on a schedule.

AFL Game Day returns for 2011 at 10am Sunday March 20 on Seven in AFL states and on 7mate at the same time in all markets. The 7mate airing of AFL Game Day will allow NSW and QLD AFL fans to see the show at the same time as those in the AFL states do.

In AFL states, the Amazing Race encore on Seven will move from 10am Sundays to 11am Sundays. Elsewhere, The Amazing Race encore remains at 10am Sundays with True Beauty from 11am.

On Sunday March 20 and 27, there is an extra two episode of Gene Simmons Family Jewels on 7mate, with two labelled as “adults only” from 8.30pm, following the usual two from 7.30pm.

Thursday night documentaries now include Mighty Ships at 7.30pm, Man Made Marvels at 8.30 – featuring Taiwan’s Hsuehshan Tunnel for the first episode – and all new Super Factories at 9.30pm from March 17.

 

A somewhat partial program for the first week of 7mate has been released, revealing that day time programming is mostly a mix of old TV shows and the odd old movie – yes great use of a HD channel that is – and NBC Today show at 9am.

The typical weekday looks like this:

6.00am Wagon Train
7.00 Virginian
8.30 McHale’s Navy
9.00 NBC Today
12.00pm Situation Critical
1.00 Quincy M.E.
2.00 Magnum PI
3.00 The Rockford Files
4.00 Knight Rider
5.00 The A Team

Programming for 7mate’s first full day of independent programming Sunday Sept 26 is the same as the above weekday line up from 2pm, with movies at 10am at 12pm.

From 6pm to midnight, only highlights have been released so far, with a lot of TBA’s to be filled in. note these are all new episodes.

6.30pm Gene Simmons Family Jewels
8.30pm Punk’d

At this stage, the rest of the prime time content is yet to be revealed. Some of the gaps could be movies, as well as other shows they are yet to decide.

At midnight, Lost will be played. From 1am to 5.30am, are repeats of some of the day time shows with Quincy M.E first at around 12.50, then Magnum PI, The Rockford Files, Knight Rider and The A Team. Deal or no Deal repeats can be seen at 5.30am.

The only exception to the early morning day time repeats is Wednesday nights (Thursday mornings)where Home Shopping is scheduled for 2am. At least it is only one night, but the question is why bother – surely we deserve one channel completely free of Home Shopping?

The 7mate schedule is only the first release. It is subject to change, and as we have seen every time a new channel launches, there will be changes both in the lead up to the September 25 launch, as well as possibly more as the channel is on air as the network reacts to ratings.

At this stage, it looks like 7mate ratings will not be separated from those of Seven when it launches. There is no date from OzTam for the channel to count as its own, meaning, initially at least, 7mate ratings will be part of Seven’s.
