This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the Blue Ant Media Specialty Channels for the 2019-20 broadcast year, including A.Side, BBC Earth, Cottage Life, HIFI, Love Nature, Makeful TV, Smithsonian Channel and T+E.

I post schedule updates, series premieres and specials based on press releases as well as series renewals and cancellations as they are announced.
