The Amazing Race Premiers on 7Mate On Sunday At 6.30pm
For those people who have had to rely on getting their Phil Keoghan kicks from the visit New Zealand ads (yes that spa scene is amazing) , the good news is the new series of The Amazing Race will be starting on Sunday.
But please note the new station (Seven Mate) and timeslot (6.30pm).
TV Tonight has a good article on why it has been shifted – basically so it could be fast tracked from the US.
The bad news is if you don’t have a digital box or are on Foxtel you won’t be able to see it. Foxtel are yet to stream the channel. UPDATE: TV Tonight contacted me and said it is on Foxtel cable but not Foxtel satellite.
