If you could make your own T.V. channel, what would it be? I mean, what specific theme would it be. Here are my choices.
All-Awards Channel: Basically, they are any awards telecast, the Oscars, Golden Globes, SAGs, Grammys, Tonys, etc., 24/7 without breaks. I honestly don’t think that it’s that bad an idea.
All The Simpsons Channel: Since there is almost 600 Simpsons episodes, I think there should be a channel that only has The Simpsons episodes.October 9, 2016 at 4:51 pm #1201933565
SimpsonsWorld negates the demand for the latter.October 9, 2016 at 5:16 pm #1201933570

The Harry Potter movie channel, like when freeform has those weekends playing all the movies, but it’s not often enough. I need it on always 24/7/365 to just flip to the channel and watch whenever I want.October 10, 2016 at 9:57 am #1201933798
it will have superhero movies and tv showsOctober 10, 2016 at 12:37 pm #1201933880
First off, I love the idea for the Awards Channel. They could replay award ceremonies from years or decades past, perhaps with new commentary from the producers about production issues, from the celebrities about their acceptance speeches or behind the scenes gossip. They could produce new red carpet footage for current ceremonies and perhaps rerun classic Joan Rivers red carpet coverages and fashion reviews. I see the potential!
My choice for a channel would be to revive SoapNet. A channel dedicated to airing daytime and nighttime soap operas from years past and replay same day episodes of current soaps. I also think they could have worked on producing soap related content like Soap Opera Jeopardy or Soap Opera Wheel of Fortune. A revived SoapTalk could work, a revival of Soap Center, the soap opera news magazine as well.October 10, 2016 at 12:53 pm #1201933891
A 24/7 Awards Channel showing old awards shows would be glorious.October 10, 2016 at 9:34 pm #1201934030
20 years ago, April 1996, was the launch of TV Land. Given what that has become, and that Retro TV is just a subchannel, I would want a linear channel that has programming only with content not available on DVD or Blu-ray. Some series which were ill-fated but were of good quality—and not seen in years (and not uploaded to YouTube)—would be advisable.October 11, 2016 at 12:20 pm #1201934235

Isn’t that pretty much what FXX is now? I used to keep track of what episodes FXX aired each week, and there’s definitely a pattern (for example, Mondays is an episode from each of seasons 1-12, I think). Also, in addition to the previously mentioned Simpsons World, FXNow has every episode available (and that’s “every” episode, up through and including the one that Fox just aired).

Does this include the 13-episode wonders (e.g. 1600 Penn), or just shows with multiple seasons that didn’t get video releases for whatever reason (e.g. Murphy Brown, which I don’t think got past Season 1 as the sales didn’t justify what it would cost for the Motown music rights, and somebody was afraid that substitute music would turn it into another WKRP in Cincinnati fiasco)?
OOPS – 1600 Penn is already on DVD. So are Alcatraz, Terra Nova, The Mob Doctor, and Almost Human. Red Band Society isn’t…
