    Another channel watering down it's programming to appeal to a broader audience. Bye-bye jazz, hello reality tv :(

    Actually they are showing an old movie right now, looks like from the late 70's or early 80's.

    Yes, but then there's this from the linked article:

    The new network will take aim at Comcast/Radio One-owned TV One in targeting an audience of 25-to 54-year-old African-Americans, while also reaching out to other multicultural audiences.
    .

    .
    As for the programming, the network for the short-term will rely on acquired reality and music programming fare from its sister networks, including such shows as MTV's Run's House and VH1's The Salt-N-Pepa Show and I Want To Work for Diddy, said Baker.
