Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

TV 2 sucks

Published: Monday 2004-04-19.

Norwegian TV 2 has performed a “TV 3” and let us know that they are not going to show more than the first two seasons of Star Trek Voyager. They are a bit annoying in that manner (not as annoying as TV 3, but getting closer), they only showed the first season (or if it was the first two seasons) of Star Trek The Next Generation earlier (just like their Swedish sister-channel TV 4 did) and it took Norwegian tv viewers quite some lobbying to get them to run the entire Babylon 5. Fortunately SVT has already run the entire series, but it is still annoying.

They didn’t have any motivation for why they will not run more seasons, maybe it is because they have bad rating, but that is definitely self-inflicted since they often have chosen to show sports instead, or have switched air times without notice.

[Translated from Norwegian]

TV 2 only holds rights to two seasons of Star Trek Voyager. We will thus not show season 3.

Instead we now show reruns of season 1.

We thank you for the mail and note the wish for more seasons of Voyager.

En reklamfinansierad kanal kanske bara kan köpa in de serier de kan sälja annonsplats i samband med. Om de har vikande tittarsiffror kan jag ha viss förståelse att de inte köper fler säsonger, men det är lite mysko om det ingår ett antal reprisrättigheter med varje säsong. Vad jag förstod betalar kanalen igen, fast en mindre summa, när de utnyttjar reprisrätten?

SVT på sin tid inledde ju flott med ST:VOY på torsdagar 19:00 för att några år senare ligga sent på söndagskvällar, men de lever ju för licenspengar och kan "kultursponsra" på helt annat sätt. Heh.. om man nu kan kalla science fiction för "kultur" när tillräckligt få tittar på det. ;-)
