TechTV is abandoning live breaking news in favor of tech-related entertainment programming and newsmagazines. As a result, about 50 staffers are losing their jobs, mostly from programming and production.

Flagship daily newscast Tech Live, once a full nine-and-a-half hours, will drop to a half-hour (it was recently cut back to three-and-a-half hours daily).

TechTV is buying up entertainment programming with high-tech and futuristic themes.

Recent pick ups include movies Coma, Demon Seed and Forbidden Planet and four series -- Max Headroom, Thunderbirds, Techno Games and Future Fighting Machines. Last month TechTV added two original information shows, The Tech of and Eye Drops, and an older series, Big Thinkers, has been revamped into magazine-style.

Oh well, there goes another channel down the tubes. TechTV's actions puzzle me. Why did they change their format? Was it not getting enough ratings? It seems to me that everyone in the forum preferred their older format over the new one.

"genieouses"?

I love it.

TechTV has been going north ever since it changed from ZDTV. I'll still watch it for the awesome techno-babes, and Leo & Patrick.

Network execs who don't have a clue make stupid programming decisions for the rest of us.

Hand me the remote.....
Okay, so tell us how you really feel.
