Herald Sun - Switched On - - News -

PUT on your flak jacket and take cover. The 2010 TV war is set to be the fiercest in his­tory with more chan­nels bat­tling for your at­ten­tion than ever be­fore.

If view­ers aren’t cap­ti­vated by the shows on Seven, Nine and Ten, you can bet they will be switch­ing to 7Two and GO! Then there is Fox­tel as well as the three ABC chan­nels, two SBS chan­nels and Ten’s ONE.

That will put a heck of a lot of pres­sure on TV pro­gram­mers to come up with the goods — shows that will stop peo­ple chan­nel surf­ing.

To win view­ers, they are set to launch more than 30 new se­ries and tele­movies as well as screen three of the world’s big­gest sport­ing events — the Win­ter Olympics (Nine and Fox­tel), FIFA World Cup soc­cer (SBS and Fox­tel) and the XIXth Com­mon­wealth Games (Ten and Fox­tel). The Guide gives a taste of what’s to come and an­tic­i­pates the hits of 2010.
