C4

This channel is so boring now. It’s like a behind version of MTV New Zealand. They dropped most of their ‘themed’ shows like Amp’d, Intellectual Property, Flasbacks etc. so they can add more of those MTV shows. The problem is if you have Sky, you don’t need C4. But I wouldn’t rule C4 out at all, they still have ‘Insert Video Here’ to look forward to every Wednesday night and the Top 40 Countdown every Sunday night.

Saturday 28th of October at 8pm

Zoo TV: Live from Sydney is a U2 concert recorded in 1993 at the Sydney Football Stadium. Worth checking out as the show won a Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video in 1994.
