    Default Transformers Movies on Free-TV

    I saw it in the program guide this morning, if for some reason you prefer watching it with ads and not on DVD/Blu-Ray it's on telly tonight, channel 10 I think.

    I honestly can't remember the last time I saw an ad on TV. My life has been bliss ever since.

    With each of the networks now having 3 or 4 channels, they repeat a lot of movies within short spaces of time (it's like repeat screenings on PayTV, but less predictable). Network 7 was playing the Pirates movies a couple times over, while 9 played the newer Batman movies a couple times within a few weeks. (not to mention replaying their most costly shows up to 3 times in the week, and the odd new movie within two weeks on a different channel of theirs)

    It wouldn't surprise me if we get the full run of three again, as it was just a couple months ago when Ten last played them a week apart.

    That's interesting. Channel 10 has been sitting on the rights for Transformers since the first Movie aired back in 2009 and were playing one every few months... and now Channel 9 has it.

    I just saw the ad tonight, and they refer to it being from Steven Spielberg, but not Michael Bay.
    As a fan I thought it was funny, but wonder why they did that. Only a portion of the fans see him as a negative element, so to the rest of the world that spent a billion dollars on most of the Transformers movies, Bay is the reason for that.
    And it's not like he's unknown, as Channel 9 have been using him to promote their show "The Last Ship", which was done by his Production company Platinum Dunes.

    I remember back in the early days of Pay TV when Showtime was included in the standard package they repeated movies so often you would be be sick of the movie long before the movie was finished its run.
    I have a list of all G1 characters that have been released in CHUG form. You can find it here. Please feel free to let me know if I got anything wrong so I can fix it.

    Channel 7 used to repeat TFTM every New Year's Day for years. I think they stopped somewhere around the mid 90s, but that used to be an annual ritual for me. Pretty sweet way to welcome in the new year.
