It was also announced with the September highlights:

Quote:
- Kevin Can Wait and Man with a Plan will now premiere on a Sunday (from 3 September at 16:00 and 16:30)
Except that 3 Sep was still repeats so it is actually only from 10 September.

That is a new twist yes. For me personally these 2 series are just mediocre at best though so not a big loss to have them moved out of ACTUAL prime time.

It just means less space for repeats. Thought I noticed less repeats for a couple of series already, but will pay closer attention in the coming week.

Sorry to say it, but as important as repeats are I think it's most important to make space for "extra" content.
IMO better than moving series to other channels all over the place... ?

Don't mind content moving into daytime, but there must be space for repeats. Maybe my comment in your Feedback to Edge Closedown needs another mention:

This then frees up space for series repeats, more high age restricted content (late night/ early morning) or even moving reality series out of prime time to previous movie slots.

Agreed, shifting of movies may be the next important key.
The Saturday night movie has also become entrenched, as has the late Sunday foreign movie. (Friday night as well?)
The rest could move elsewhere it seems, but methinks it's not so simple...

Presuming 101 movies are always more recent ones, they can't then move to the more classical channels 110 and 111, so just 3 movie channels could maybe be used.
But I recall us being told that part of the rights complexities is that studios / suppliers demand that there are a minimum amount of times that movies are shown in any given period of their various life cycles on a platform.
All quite insane, who knows how it's all ever been managed

Maybe additionally needed movie repeats could move to the tons of hours "available" on 900 M-Binge?
Sort of fits and seems the least troublesome or confusing.
