History

In August 2013, it was announced that Foxtel had failed to complete negotiations with the TV1 General Entertainment Partnership for a new carriage deal for their channel TV1, an Australian general entertainment channel decidated to hit television series, and would ultimately replace it with another general entertainment channel once TV1's carriage deal had expired.[3] It was announced in October that TVHits, a channel owned and operated by Foxtel Networks, would replace TV1 on 1 January 2014.[2][4]

On 1 January 2014, the channel launched on pay television provider Foxtel (which included its streaming service Foxtel Go as well as its IPTV service Foxtel Play)[2][5] as well as on Australian IPTV provider FetchTV.[6][7]

Programming

At launch, TVHits' programming primarily consisted of hit American shows from Warner Bros., Carsey-Werner, Sony Pictures Television, CBS Studios International and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.[2][4][5] However, following the rebrand of 111 on 1 November 2015, the channel's sitcoms moved to 111 and as a result, the channel now focuses on dramas.[8][9]

With Love (Hilary Duff song)

"With Love" is a song recorded by American recording artist Hilary Duff for her fourth studio album, Dignity (2007). It was written by Duff and Kara DioGuardi with the song's producers Vada Nobles and Julius "Logic" Diaz. According to Duff, the song is about having a "crazy job" but being kept "sane" by a lover. Musically, "With Love" has a dance-rock guitar throughout its hook while it presents more mature vocals by Duff in contrast to her previous works. The song was released as the second single from Dignity on February 2, 2007 by Hollywood Records.

"With Love" received positive reviews from music critics, who called it a reinvention by the singer, and compared it with the works by Kylie Minogue and Gwen Stefani. Commercially "With Love" also fared well. It became her highest-peaking single on the US Billboard Hot 100, where it reached number 24, and additionally reached number one on the region's Hot Dance Club Play chart. It was also able to reach numbers six and eight in Spain and Italy, respectively.

The "With Love" accompanying music video was directed by Matthew Rolston and doubles as the television commercial for Duff's fragrance With Love... Hilary Duff. It was filmed at City Hall in San Francisco, and features Kellan Lutz as Duff's love interest. It decipts Duff being followed by Lutz's character until they share a kiss towards its end. A separate version of the music video was produced for airing on Disney Channel and its online DXD service on the page for Radio Disney. Duff made a live performance of "With Love" at the 2007 MuchMusic Video Awards, where she also won the accolade for People's Choice: Favourite International Artist.
