Comedy Channel, what’s the big deal?

February 21, 2007 at 1:35 pm | Posted in Random, Television, television ads | 4 Comments

Apparently, the Comedy Channel has moved to Melbourne. If you have Foxtel you’ve probably seen the promotions ad nauseum. I realise that getting the opportunity to move out of Ryde in Sydney to Melbourne, home of Australia’s most well known comedy festival is probably a good thing. A quick check of their schedule and website clearly shows the preponderance of non-Australian content and other than “Stand up Australia” where they have a live audience and perhaps the occasional special (particularly over the festival) does it really matter where they are headquartered or a need for a massive campaign?

  1. Yes, those ads are driving me crazy too. It’s “very Melbourne” to think the rest of the country would be interested.

  2. Then again, they’d say the same thing about Sydney. 🙂

  3. No disagreement about that but I’m pretty sure no one anywhere cares where their TV comes from (except for local news or if there are freebies). Comedy Channel needs to stop hassling the rest of the country.

  4. I can’t think of any channel which would declare themselves “coming from Sydney” unless it was a Sydney station broadcasting to Sydney. Provincialism and parochialism rules in Australia’s second largest (soon to be overtaken by Brisbane) city.
