I think all it is is paid programming. It was originally put in early 200s when AFN went off the air, which made me think it involved European sports. But no, just ads.

Any update on this situation. ????:confused:

It is really disapointing to see actual program content swapped for mindless infomercial blather. Sad to see this.
