    Like I said in post #4079 today's AMC= Always More Commercials. That's why I suggested they change their name to American Media Classics.

    Well we know now it is not AMC -- Sigma has been pretty clear about his feelings for that channel, so I doubt that he would be "thankful".

    At least it is commercial free and all baskets are in their original aspect ratios.

    So much frigging secrecy over something like this.

    I priced up Dish a few weeks ago because I wanted BBC in HD, i couldn't pull the trigger on the deal. I still had to pay about $200 oop to get the receivers. I like AMC and all, Breaking Bad and Walking Dead are worth it.

    But just fricking tell us already.

    WTBS was the best station in the late 70's 80's & 90's.

    Honestly, I wish I could. Cuz then we could continue the game for a little longer instead of putting it into hiatus. :)

    Even if the game wasn't afoot, I would love to tell. But I may not--yet.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    It's the new Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day (DLTD-HD) Channel. It shows an endless loop of Thanksgiving Day Detroit Lions games from past to present. Wit commentary by Al Gore's Head in a Jar from Futurama ;)

    Excellent guess. But... Wrong.

    Remember my quality cloos. The Lions have not been a quality team in way too long for this to be a quality channel. ;)

    (Lions fans, I do think the Lions have some serious potential this season. If they learn how to win, they could be a force. Though without Fairly, maybe not so much as originally thought.)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I don't know, didn't the Lions beat New England in pre-season football? England, like British, like British Broadcasting Corporation? Maybe Tom's giving us another clue! Quick, everyone try to figure it out! :lol:

    He also spelled the word "clue" as "cloo".

    I'm not personally aware of "cloo" broadcasting in HD....

    Was American Motors Corporation based in Detroit?

    Like another AMC, American Motors Corporation lost its quality long ago. :)
