PAY TV ADS
Once upon a time, the "free" tv channels were afraid that "pay tv" would destroy them.
I still remember some of the tv commercials asking viewers to contact their congressmen and tell them, we didn't want to lose our "free tv".
It must have been similar to the fear most movie studios had in regards to television ( during the boob-tube's early days ).
I also remember that fanatics wanted to censor, and ban, a lot of cable channels. Was somebody pointing a gun to their heads, and forcing them to subscribe to cable tv?!... If you don't like it, DON'T watch it!
Remember all the scrambled channels, and "public access" channels?
Anybody out there remember the early days of HBO, and their preview show hosted by Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara? This preview show was BETTER than most of the movies they aired!
Or how about a movie called THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN? They used to air that flick every chance they got!
I love all the new "free" digital channels. It reminds me of cable tv's early days. You've got channels for almost every taste that exists.
