They have a lot of catching up to do (no Spandau Ballet, for example), but there are some gems on there already, such as "Black Stations/White Stations" by Martha & The Muffins and "True Love Pt. 2" by X.

This looks promising, however I heard that after the M2 A-Z marathon back in 2000, Some of the music video aired were taped over after or just completely thrown away after the marathon was over. I did notice 2 Haysi videos, but no sign of "John Wayne Is Big Leggy"

A quick test shows they are only carrying the mainstream stuff. Ie boring top 40 shit. Nothing VH1 Classic used to play. Sad.

I'm not one to complain [:D] but my favorite new wave video of all time, Public Image by Public Image Ltd. isn't even on there. Meanwhile it's easily available on YouTube. Also the full screen function doesn't work, at least not for me. Outside of that it's not bad.
