Actually we all lose ... our remote control only lets us choose what channels we watch of the ones available. It does not allow us to change what the channels broadcast.
O.K. JL, you win,
We can show our displeasure at what ESPN has on by watching something else ... but as long as the channel pulls in viewers for their headline shows the filler sports and commentary shows don't have to carry the network.
It could be. But many channels do not live up to their names. Remember when MTV played music videos? Now we have four channels of MTV/VH1 and much of the programming is barely related to music. (Married ... With Children is on one of those music channels tonight - the connection to music? The show has a theme song.)
I guess since espn is "entertainment and sports programming network" the channels filled without the sports part is suppose to be entertainment.
Speedvision went from filling their hours with racing to Speed filling their hours with vehicle related shows. And the future is "yet another ESPN" ... which is probably better than all the "reality" shows. (FS1 will have a heavy NASCAR footprint ... with Sprint Cup races in 2015. But for people who like the reality shows they will have to hope it ends up on Fuel/FS2 or another channel like Velocity. Perhaps "R U Faster than a Redneck" can air on History or H2? History made every day ...)
Hmmm ... perhaps if I put new batteries in my remote it will change the programming as well as the channel.
