I hate that thing so much. last time I was watching Prevue I was thinking
that it'd be cool if someone were able to social-engineer a huge block of
public-access hours on some station, and set up an advertisement-free
schedule guide. Too bad it's not as easy to be a tv content provider as it
is to put something on the web.
And then there's the channel that's just an Amiga desktop with "soft jazz"
playing in the background, 24/7. What's up with that?
