Why is Greys Anatomy being shown on Showcase, its already been on M-Net. This would make sense if Showcase was a Compact channel but its not, so Showcase is showing repeats... isn't that what Zone is for?

Very good question! I didn't even notice that it's on Showcase and not Zone. I agree though. Should be on Zone.

I must agree it just defeats the purpose of M-Net Series Zone. On the topic of Zone, how come Season 2 of Revenge is being aired without non-Premium subscribers seeing the first season?

Agree. Unlike on Series, the 22:30 slot on Showcase has no premiere so they are screening repeats

I'm not too bothered about the 22:30 slot not having a premiere, but then repeats should be of other Showcase shows, not M-Net shows.

Agree with you, I would prefer more repeats of Showcase series, but just guessing because that slot is no longer a premiere slot they are using it for repeats of M-net series.

FYI: They are doing this with Bunheads: it's season 1 split into 2, but they are referring to current episodes as season 2, see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2006848/...f_=tt_eps_sn_1

MC, any comment re season 3 of Switched at Birth?

Fully agree. On Series Showcase makes no sense at all, same as season 2 of Revenge. Keep showcase a premiere series channel. Please inform M-Net, MC.

Talking of Greys Anatomy, I see on Wiki that the first episode of the new season 10 will be premiered in the States on Sept. 26th with a double episode.
Can we find out at this stage if this will be HOTH for us on 101 M-Net, therefore on our screens within a week to 10 days of that?

A certain independent reporter quotes M-Net as saying we will see "the return () of a new season" in Sep/Oct but the context of both that statement & paragraph was otherwise(?) focused on Series Zone and not M-Net itself so what is meant really isn't clear at all.
As M-Net has already released such info to the press I'm sure they can give us answers to this and the other Greys related enquiry.
