It's an a la carte channel. Not included in your base package.
What's next? The fireplace channel? Bird TV for cats?
i am glad I purchased a new TV just in time for this historic day :righton:
All I can think of is this.
Hey, dogs can't even see COLOR much less HD!!!
Does it work for Cats?
Absolutely not. woof
can't believe this made 2 pages of posts without somebody posting what immediately popped into my mind when I read it.................
Now it is true that TV is really going to the dogs!
I have a channel for my cats already, it is a screen saver of a aquarium for the PC, they sit and start at it all the time
Actually, they can see color, just not like we can. A lot of research went into this channel from the folks at Tufts University, a pretty good school known for many things, including their Animal Behavior Research Institute which is part of their school of Veterinary Medicine.
I actually asked the question of the researchers and they said no. Cats do not react well to this type of stimuli, but the dogs do.
Shows how little they know.
I think Henry, the wonder dog would enjoy this channel. I hope he can afford it.
I don't intend to subscribe; part of the reason is that I don't have any pets.
I will have to ask my relative, living in Colorado, what she thinks. She is a dog person. (Then again, so is my brother. And he wants to spend less, not more, on programming. I referred both to DirecTV.)
Well Directv charges a minimum of $34.98 to receive Dog TV, since you can't only subscribe for $4.99.
If people don't subscribe to pay TV some may see $9.99 as a value. I don't though, But just saying!
Just a thought..Roku is internet based..You still have to factor in internet access costs, plus any overage charges if you are on a data cap limit.
I wont be subscribing because I don't own a dog, but you would be surprised as to how many do sign up when it becomes available.

I doubt I would subscribe even though I do have a dog. But if I had a dog with issues when no one was at home, I would almost certainly give it a try. I'm actually looking forward to see how Nica (our dog) reacts to it when it premiers free for a while. It does start as a freebie for a week or two, doesn't it?
Yes, I joked about how my dog could afford this, but he has recently started showing some symptoms of separation anxiety and if this were to help in that, it might be worth the $5 per month. I will try it out when it is free. We have a small Sony that just has to be lowered to be in front of his crate. Worth a try. He seems to be getting tired of the classical music station.
Whatever. Who cares. History shows niche channels eventually deteriorate and jump on the bandwagon of other TV channels that have followed MTV of abandoning their roots.
"What does "insert show here" have to do with dogs? It doesn't belong on this channel.
It's always a great joy turning to TLC which is supposed to be The Learning Channel and hear the mother from Honey Boo Boo say she has to fart!
It's always nice turning to a science fiction channel and see game shows.
It may start out showing dogs, but I wouldn't be surprised if eventually the programming includes programming that doesn't belong.
DOGTV isn't about showing dogs. The concept is about providing programing that helps stimulate, entertain, relax, and habituate dogs with shows that expose them to various movements, sounds, objects, experiences, and behavior patterns while the owner is away for long periods.
I love some of the headlines around the 'net for this story.......
"DirecTV will unleash a channel for dogs and throw a bone to DogTV"
