SOUTHERN Cross Television will launch its new digital channel in October.
7mate, the new Seven Network digital channel, will launch on the mainland next Saturday, to coincide with this year's AFL grand final.
However, Tasmanian viewers will have to wait until October 24 to get access to the new male-orientated channel - shortly after the conclusion of the Commonwealth Games in India.
The new channel will target primarily male viewers in the 16 to 49-year demographic, and will include shows such as Family Guy, American Dad, How I Met Your Mother, Stargate Atlantis, 30 Rock, That 70s Show, Scrubs, Jersey Shore, Fifth Gear and Air Crash Investigations, as well as regular movie presentations.
