And that's when it was a good channel. (as ZDTV)
You mean G4TV. ZNET TV and they rebranded it to TechTV. The man from Microsoft sold TechTV to Comcast who ruined it.
No but it's not hurting anyone, either
I find it very appropriate ... these are the "beginning in May" additions.
NOT that I expect any news...but any bets for tomorrow?
Whatever happened with Tech-tv how come they changed etc. I loved some of those shows Leo Laporte and other computer shows.
There is, but D* WON'T add it...
(this was previously Goodlife TV, then Nostalgia Channel before that...)
Hum, I actually like the sound of Nostalgia Channel. Half the new stuff on TV is remakes of old fav's anyway so that would be a perfect channel for an old duffer like me hehe.
Nothing coming tomorrow.
I'm an Old f*** too, and I'd love to see most of, if not all of, the shows listed on http://www.entertainmentscene.com/top_tv_shows_50s.html. I have recorded tons of "Newhart", "The Honeymooners" and "Married With Children" from WGN, and still enjoy them. I haven't watched a modern sitcom since MWC.
Me too, I loved Call For Help and Screensavers
OK, now that you mention the 'characters'... I think I have a good description... part Antiques Roadshow, part American Chopper.
I gave Pawn Stars a shot once. It felt far too forced, scripted, and manufactured for me.
It's "Antiques Road Show --White Trash Edition".
I rather like it. :lol:
After waxing poetic about probably never seeing it, I just returned from my sister's house. She watches it along with her husband. I think he likes it quite a bit. They had a couple of episodes still on the DVR.
I agree with Hoosier, far to forced abd scripted, not that I expected anything different.
Like I said in an earlier post this isn't a criticism of any one who watches the show.
I stand by my original contention that it's inclusion on History Channel is a sad commentary on what the History Channels has become.
Though I understand in today's Cable/Sat/Internet world the need to diversify to please a more general audience and hunt for more eyeballs.
I hate when they do that. I'd rather have 50 channels going after unique target audiences than 250 channels all trying to reach the mainstream viewer.
If I were DirecTV, I would have debuted Lifetime-HD this week due to the Season Premiere of "Drop Dead Diva" this weekend, and then most likely wait until D10 is fixed to offer the rest...
Obviously I'm not DirecTV...
Not what I had in mind. I looked at their programs and 90% are old shows.
I'm searching for a network that will focus on the baby boomers as they head into their senior years - programs focus on their financial, health and shelter needs.
Believe it been estimated that a third of the nation, will be senior citizens by the end of the decade. So don't anyone dare try to say there ain't a marketplace for this kind of network.
Don't know the details. Wonder if anyone wrote an article on Tech-TV collapse.
