    Nice to see that they seem to be having similar shows as before. Anyone know if Lost Girl will be on the new channel?

    ABC have lost misfits? Didn’t they used to run it before paytv?

    Foxtel and SyFy have just squeezed out the middleman and split the proceeds.

    And they will have Misfits before ABC2 and Haven before 13th Street.

    So pretty much the same shows that are on now.
