How Scary is this ! !

Just clicked on my bookmark for the tv channels.... and there, at the top of the listing... is.... New... Horror  Channel....
( channel 70 freeview)...
so they are offering some reall scary stuff on there......  dare I tune in? ? ? 

C`mon... how scary is this.......
  "The incredible Hulk"..... followed by two sessions of  " Doctor Who" ....  then  a 1999 film entitled "Monster"... ( where a small town hosts a monster movie festival... and the monsters come to life ! ! ))  followed by..... "Star Trek - The Next Generation"..
I wish my mummy was here... I`m so frightened ....

Nah... don`t think so...

If it's the same schedule as Freesat then I seem to remember films like Basket Case, Re-animator, Scanners amongst others being advertised.

The Horror Channel is replacing CBS Action on channel 70, they're still broadcasting as CBS Action as far as I see, maybe you need to do a full retune (as I do it seems, god I hate freeview and the never ending need to retune adding back the channels I removed (godsquad, adult & dating channels)), still, once they sell off the 700MHz band, there shall be fewer channels to watch, so less room to clog up with useless channels that belong on sky...

They should put all this pre election stuff on this channel, if it do not scare you then it should.

Nah, stick all the pre-election stuff on the "adult" channels, where the lesser educated go for a quick thrill... Grin

Just retuned, CBS Action is on 64, The Horror Channel is on 70, and showing old horror films that wouldn't scare a toddler these days... Grin

I was just going to say it sounds just like the schedule for CBS Action.
Maybe it's the next logical step in TV world.
Repeats are yesterdays news. Lets repeat entire channels now.

Actually, looking at the schedule, yeah, star trek TNG is on the horror channel, makes no sense, 'cept maybe the episode "Conspiracy" which seems to be on next tuesday where they make Commander Remmick's head explode (probably the most "gory" thing they did on TNG, even though it was just a melon with an airbag charge inside it!!) with a couple of phaser blasts...
