If it wasn’t for the fact that I actually see kangaroos on a daily basis I’d probably be lambasting these Neighbours promos on Channel Five for there overuse of our national icon, but I guess its hard to argue with a cliché when you’re living in one.

In summary, Neighbours is leaving the BBC and heading to Five.

– Thanks for the videos Craig.

Along with FiveUS, a new channel targeted at women has also been brought online by Five. Five Life will feature the likes of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Home and Away.

More exciting for me though is the inclusion of Love My Way in the line up. I only recently discovered the show, and documented my enthusiasm for it here. If you live in the UK give it a go, and if you live in Australia catch up with the DVD’s because I think the third season is due soon.

Update: John Suchet reminding you to rescan for the new channels.

Why can’t an Australian network do something as cool and simple as a shark eating a meat version of their logo? Love it.
