Have you noticed Network, local and cable TV channels have greatly cut back on B-Movie programming? I have. I was a Bob Wilkins fan from way back. Later, TNTs MonsterVision and USAs UpAllNight helped greatly, but now they are gone too.

No, I don't want to see "The Titanic", I'd rather see "Night of the Creeps".

Because of satellite TV we now have a lot of slots opening up that can fill this glaring lack. There are some new channels starting up that we should try to get DirectTV and DishTV to carry.

Have you heard of these?

If you're with me on this lets try to get our carriers to pick them up.

I wnt to their website and found nothing on today's schedule that was remotely b-ish. Strange for a channel that shows "mostly" B-movies.

Gojira69, it is a High Definition movie channel but you have to have a HD receiver to get it.

I miss "Chiller", "Fabulous 52", "Elvira" and all those old shows that I watched as a kid growing up in LA (not Louseeanna).

Creature Double Feature

Speaking of B/Cult movies ... anybody remember Creature Double Feature?

I think I emotionally scarred myself by staying indoors all day saturdays instead of going outdoors and socializing.

Try Bell ExpressVu. They have three channels Moviola, Scream and Drivin. Drivin has some great B movies like these on tonight: "The Giant Gila Monster" "Monster from Green Hell" "Die, Monster, Die" "Teenage Devil Dolls"

When my 4DTV system was working, I could get Bmania on T7 - 800. It's in the clear too! I hope at least ONE of the major satellite carriers takes it. I'm trying to get Charter to start carrying it. I have them for now, as I've had it with E*, and don't yet have the $$$$ to buy a DirecTV HD reciever.
As for Monstervision, I'm a Joe Bob Briggs fan myself. TNT really made a crappy decision getting rid of Monstervision. :yes

That's just in Canada, though. Doesn't do us much good here. :(
