Man, talk about niche channels.

I am still waiting on Ovation, Goodlife, & B-Mania.

Out of the new ones, only America National Network and Destiny look mildly interesting.

Really, at this point, if I were going to start a new station, I give a long hard look at just internet streaming. If there ever was one vision of the future that was a dud, it was the days of 500channels of cable and satellite. It's just too expensive for the cable/sat companies to carry all these stations.

They should make a channel that just play Commercials all day long, not paid programmings but funny and interesting advertisements from all over the world.

LOL. Good one. Another one I forgot about was MovieWatch. Anybody heard anything about that? Unless the contract expires at a certain time, MovieWatch has a deal with DirecTV already for when they launch.

Casino and Gaming TV is probably going to launch. It's already got a deal with Bell ExpressVu in Canada to launch some time in March in Canada. It would be a great alternative to the now completely crappy G4TechTV.
