Re: [fearnwhiskey] MuchMusic Americana (was: Re: Kinks/a blatant plug for Trio)
- What I was told was that Music Choice changed the way they offered the channel....from putting it on the basic list for all affiliates to making it a choice that your local affiliate will need to make with regards to whether or not to offer it. In other words, this is similar to the "I Want My Mtv" situation from the 1980s.
That's what I've been told from the corporate level. I haven't heard from any local affiliates, so I really don't know if it is really that easy from them to offer. Not sure what kinda hoops they have to jump through to make it happen, but if you really want your channel, you should probably start by contacting your local office.

There was something about not offering it on the cable TV line-up (and it hasn't
returned here in Nashville, on Comcast Music Choice, seemingly another natural
place to do it if they do it)--but on some other subscription service on roadbnd
If anybody decodes the policy, it would be good to know.
