Foxtel has announced their new channel “Binge” will feature Supergirl Season 1 from October 5, 2016. Season 2 will be shown on the same day as the US with it’s Express service. The show remains on Fox 8.
Foxtel today flagged key programming slated to air on its upcoming brand new channel, Binge, and reminded customers that the channel’s highly anticipated debut is less than a month away. Binge, designed to meet the ever increasing consumer demand for box sets, will kick off its first broadcast on channel 116 on October 5, 2016 with a line-up of series that mirrors today’s political climate, offers something for viewers in search of a hero, and gets us in the mood for Halloween.
Binge will open with season one of Supergirl, which introduces us to Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), aka Kara Zor-El, cousin of Superman who, at 12 years old, also escaped doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth. Raised by her adoptive family, the Danvers, Kara hides her powers until adulthood, when she comes into her own as National City’s newest superhero, all while juggling a complex personal life.
Foxtel’s Binge channel builds on the success of the incredibly popular 2014 launch of Foxtel’s first linear BoxSets channel and allows customers to watch collections and selected series of some of the world’s greatest drama, including the extensive libraries of HBO, Warner Bros. and other Hollywood studios.
Binge and the BoxSets channels provide subscribers without an internet connection the ability to watch whole seasons of their favourite shows.
For subscribers without an internet enabled and connected iQ box, Foxtel’s Binge and BoxSets feature continuous broadcasts of popular series that can be recorded on the Foxtel iQ and played back at a time that suits customers’ schedules. Foxtel cable and satellite customers can watch BoxSets and Binge (available October 5) as part of the Foxtel Drama pack.\
