    It's an acronym for "Music, Arts and Dance". It was produced in three languages with the third language being a Sinhala production for Hiru TV's erstwhile CN block.

    Pogo was good when they had original series like MAD and FAQ, but now all they air is Chhota Bheem.

    Hey everyone, so i've recently got myself a TV-tuner, and had a pan-european CN tape, so here is a little continuity from it (sorry for the terrible quality).
    Due to the low bitrate on youtube, it couldn't handle the big amount of static, so i've put it on zippy.

    @Checkerboard Sorry for asking, but do you have any new information about tomorrow? Can you tell us what will happen, please?

    You promised :)

    Yes, I know. And I will. I was busy with something else. Anyhow, I can say this. As I mentioned earlier, this change is purely technical. Tomorrow was the day the channel was supposed to finally start transmitting in hd. However, some technical issues appeared at last moment. Because of that the launch has been once more postponed. But the good news is it won't take much longer. What basically happened was that in the previous months it was being worked on, but it took longer than estimated due to how it will be technically solved in the end. In combination with working on other things (schedule changes/securing cz ads/adding more cz content/getting more czsk providers/updating select prints/posting to social media/preparing graphics/supplying on demand) for the region as you can imagine (not counting also the other feeds) it's quite a lot. Sure, it would perhaps look better if there weren't any dates given until everything is ready, but the notion is to get everything done as soon as possible and to keep everyone updated. Maybe a bit optimistic and not exactly realistic, but nobody is delaying anything on purpose. If you knew what it looks like behind the scenes and what it takes you would perhaps understand. Personally, I don't see a reason to be mad about it and feel like everything is happening at the pace it should. What needs to happen now in terms of hd is only some testing so that the provided signal is without fault. That is the last step before operators can pick it up and start offering it. Therefore, as I said, it will be ready soon. Finalizing doesn't take long. First companies, namely upc in czsk (and likely also upc in other regions), will get it at the end of the month. Also, there's an issue with upc cz in that they're currently full after adding the olympic hd channels - thus cn hd wouldn't have where to go anyway. After the event the testing will be finished and there will be optimization that will enable it to be added. So, basically from the end of this month all the patiently awaited changes will roll out and start happening, mostly in the next two months, and by summer all will be operational; hd/widescreen/cz ads/dimensional/vod - not just for czsk, but entire region. I have an idea of when each update will exactly happen obviously, but that I can't talk about and wouldn't even if I could. That should remain a surprise. All you need to know, if you didn't read this long text, is that by June CN CEE will become truly awesome. And if you're upset to wait a little longer for everything or skeptical, well, tough luck. It's not the end of the world and I would say it is worth waiting as all the changes are implemented. Think of CN RSEE as a taste of things to come.

    Now that's rare, footage from 2001-2002 is a rare gem. This was from January 1st, 2002, hence the Tom and Jerry New Year's Day bug. Also the first day of the Euro currency in some countries.

    I've been having unexpected issues, but I promise everything will be up on today

    BTW I've looked at the Cartoonito UK schedule.. wow, it's your usual two or three shows back to back all the time; and I thought Cartoonito Italy was repetitive.. it makes CN UK and Boom UK look like paradise
    In my opinion, they don't need to.. Christmas should be a special thing happening only in the month of December

    I know Jul i November is somehow historical on the channel, but I never liked the idea, TBH

    Jul i November could be a basic marketing tactic.

    Yeah.. I think it's linked with toy adverts showing in November etc.

    That's another reason we could be glad it's gone

    Luckily our kids channels never did that kind of thing.

    lol.. they still have in store these

    What makes the ensemble strange is the fact that the "Next" part was in 4.0, because these Next/Later bumpers are actually two parts joined together

    One thing I notice is that for CN Scandinavia (and even for DC Scandinavia these days) Christmas ads are so important that in the months leading up to Christmas, they even change their more 25-mins based scheduling (6:00, 6:25, 6:55 etc.) to a more 30-mins ones, in order to squeeze more Christmas ads, making their scheduling quite inconsistent
    I'm quite neutral about it, since CN Scandinavia is not my local CN; but I "don't like" (or I'm just plain neutral) about the idea of a Christmas block in November, given you get a lot of Christmas specials in December

    I think a Christmas block in Novembers takes all the magic of Christmas during December away

    CN Scandinavia have 25 and 30-minute slots mix which is pretty cool

    CN PT airs more ads during Christmas and elsewhere in the early evening hours.
