    Just another reason I'm closer to cutting the cord. What will this be, the 15th lifestyle channel on cable now?

    I'm starting to wonder myself. We've just experienced a snow-turned-to-ice week and I couldn't safely get to my dish to clear it for a couple of days. Watched everything streaming via the internet directly from the network websites - even Leno's "Headlines" from Monday. This from that story makes me wonder:

    I find it hard to believe there's much of a "younger and more modern sensibility" needing "linear" service. The "older and less modern sensibility" that now simply finds "linear" more convenient is soon going to want to quit spending their limited fixed income on cable/satellite. In case no one has noticed, the majority of "live plus same day viewers" became age 50+ viewers sometime back. Last year AARP had an article Who Needs Cable? 6 cheaper ways to watch great television shows which was far from complete and not well researched but may have been just the push some people needed.

    Hey media conglomerates! Where's my AARP discount??? [​IMG]

    This topic title is totally misleading.

    A&E owns Bio network, which is doing the reboot; this is abundantly clear if you actually read the link provided in the OP.

    Yep, it is important to read the story the link ties to. It's about the A&E media conglomerate telling us old folks we're not their audience of choice. Maybe someone can change the title to "A&E to reboot Bio."

    According to a local article about a show called "Rowhouse Showdown" that's being filmed here, the rebranding will be in July.

    For Your Information?

    Now why do I think there will be little real information on FYI?

    We wanted to like Rowhouse Showdown, but they just annoy us.
