  1. So as a new feature for this season, TV Times posts will feature global start times too.
    Of course, many of those timezones hold more cities than listed, but understandably, only some are mentioned, as otherwise, the list would be overly long. I think the other Dubai should be Abu Dhabi instead, though.

    1. Kathmandu: Sun 20:45.

  2. Back in business

  3. Can we have the TV times in the top menu like previous years @keithcollantine?
