Art TV premieres Prison Break Season 2

In a surprise move, Free to Air television channel Art Tv premiered the second season of popular television series Prison Break last night at 9:30pm. Art TV has been able to premiere the series before pay television channel Star World which reaffirms the fact that local English Free to Air television channels do not have to play second fiddle to the big pay television channels in this region.

However the premiere took many people by surprise since not much publicity was given regarding the premiere date. Even last Saturday (Jan 26th) the trailer was run but with the caption "Coming Soon" without any mention of the premiere date.

Being a television channel Art TV could have given more publicity or run a press advertisement on the leading English newspapers informing the public of the premiere. This seems to a hastily organized premiere and Art TV should either restart the programme or give prior notice to the viewer before the next repeat. During Season 1 the repeat was scheduled for 10:30PM on Wednesday however we are not sure about the Season 2 repeats.
