Ben's Cable Lineup
pokemon
unwiredben
all about E alerted me to the Statesman's call for people to design their own personal cable television lineup, so I responded too. It's odd -- I really don't think of TV as channels anymore, it's all just a lot of program content that I reuse at my leisure. The idea of sitting down and just watching a channel rather than picking a show from a menu or folder seems quaint.

NETWORKS:
KTBC-DT (Fox)
KVUE-DT (ABC)
KXAN1 (NBC)
KEYE-DT (CBS)
KLRU (PBS)

ENTERTAINMENT:
ME-Television (our local music channel)
Cartoon Network (for [adult swim] mainly)
Comedy Central (duh!)
G4 (mainly for X-Play)

MOVIES:
HBO HD (high-def movies)
Showtime HD (more high-def movies, and "Arrested Development", I hope)
Sundance Channel (my favorite of the two "indie" movie channels)
Independent Film Channel (IFC) (still good, but more of an "indie film greatest hits" channel)

NEWS AND INFORMATION:
News 8 Austin (love having serious local news in a loop)
C-SPAN (late night replays of policy briefings get me excited)

Yeah, if "AD" moves to Showtime, I already warned my sister that we are subscribing to the extra channel.


If "AD" moves to Showtime, I'll be holding high-def viewing parties :) I've still got the final four sitting on the hard drive to be rewatched when I need another Bluth fix.
