How about some useful TV channels?
Rather than yet another religious channel or infomercial channel, here are some channels I’d like to see pop up on a TV station here in town:
NASA TV. In the home city of the space agency, it’s a shame that the channel is only available to those who subscribe to digital cable. Bonus: They now have an HD channel.
Classic Arts Showcase. The MTV of the fine arts community, this channel showcases classical music and other fine arts.
Beach TV. Beach TV Properties operates these tourist information channels, branded as “Beach TV” in Destin, Panama City Beach, Pensacola and Myrtle Beach, “Key TV” in Key West, “NOTV” in New Orleans, and “The Atlanta Channel” in Atlanta. This would be a perfect fit for KVVV, whose licensed pattern covers Galveston Island like a glove, and would truly help Galveston’s tourist economy continue rebounding from Hurricane Ike.
An all-traffic TV channel. Houston Transtar‘s San Antonio counterpart, TransGuide, ran a low-power channel, K53JC, which cycled through TxDOT freeway cameras 24 hours a day. There’s no reason why this couldn’t be tried in Houston.
What channels would you like to see over the air?
