    BET J (Launching 3/1), Channel 330

    BET J is an evolutionary network with revolutionary appeal. It is the only place on TV to see "All Things Jazz." BET Jazz has evolved into a music, entertainment, and cultural hybrid that melds the very best of the channel. The new BET J features a collection of original and acquired programming with the sophisticated taste of the jazz enthusiast in mind. From the sounds of smooth jazz artists like Dave Koz, Najee and Diana Krall, to the classic greats like Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday. With vintage soul, classic R&B, festive Caribbean and the contemporary flavor of Neo-Soul, Bet J delivers a full menu of entertainment.

    I figured that's where they'd put it, right next to BET. Now, if only they would add the other MTV & VH1 channels....

    Yes, the majority of them air music videos 24/7 with no commercial interruption, just a promo or two every few videos. They have several digital nets:
    MTV Hits - Pop
    MTV Jams - Hip Hop
    VH1 Country - Country
    VH1 Soul - R&B
    BET Gospel - Gospel

    I can't wait for BET Jazz. It is a great channel with many jazz concerts. Finally, they add a channel for the mature generation.

    Yes, they do. That is the only thing that I miss about digital cable is having those channels.

    Let's see -- two country channels and no noise, but one jazz channel (not that rehomoginized crap that MTV and the regular BET try to pass off as music) and folks are up in arms? Now that ain't right.

    This is one of the few channels that I've truly missed from my Comcrap days.

    (And I guess I've gotta change my sig line now, too)

    Believe me, I'm no fan of the regular BET, but I just tuned in and BET J looks pretty good.

    Other recent additions include Fox Reality, ESPNU, Setanta Sports, GOL TV, Altitude Sports, Lifetime Real Women, Great American Country, ESPN2 HD, and TNT HD.

    At this stage of things, pretty much any channel that's for the "masses" has already been picked up by D*. Nearly every new channel will be a niche channel. Some that you might like, and others that you might not care for, but others value.
