ABC1 is keen for its viewers to be able to see all of its programming on offer, and many programmes that première on the channel during non-Freeview hours are repeated at another time when the channel is available on Freeview (exceptions to this are The Guardian due to its subject matter, Ghost Whisperer and In Justice; although promotions for these programmes will air during the day whilst the channel is available on Freeview). It is also the only channel to time its running schedule so that Freeview viewers don't crash in and out of programmes at the 6 a.m./6 p.m. junctions.

Ghost Whisperer is an American television drama-fantasy-thriller that premiered on CBS September 23, 2005. ...

Future Programmes

  • It is also thought that ABC1 may acquire other ABC Studios programming as now the vast majority of its shows have ended.

Ghost Whisperer is an American television drama-fantasy-thriller that premiered on CBS September 23, 2005. ...

Commercial Placement

Unlike most UK broadcasters, for its first six months ABC1 did not carry any commercials. However, it did have full-length ad-style breaks featuring trailers for its own shows and those of the Disney Channel. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


On ABC1, the advertising slots are placed in the American style of being close to the beginning and end of the programme, unlike the European fashion of between programmes and in the middle (both styles have four sections of adverts about four minutes each in length. The American style has the adverts at approximately 5, 25, 35 and 55 minutes past the hour as opposed to the standard European style of 0, 15, 30 and 45 minutes past). The exact placing of adverts vary from show to show and from episode to episode and can be anything from half a minute to eight minutes before or after the beginning and end of a show. On ABC1, hour-length programmes (such as Commander In Chief) are often split into just three parts with the two ad-slots either end of the programme and the third roughly at the halfway point. Despite having the same amount of ad breaks, ABC1 breaks are considerably longer due to the shortening of American TV series which has been ongoing for decades, as of 2007 the average American sitcom runs at 20 minutes while the average Drama runs at 40 minutes, ABC1 often fills long breaks with bumpers and promotions of its own, or Disney Channel UK's, programming. It has been suggested that List of characters in Commander in Chief be merged into this article or section. ...
