I've been cable-free for over 12 years now so I didn't know how badly Bravo and A&E had fallen. The programming sounds awful now.
My local PBS station has nights where they play nothing but arts videos. When I find those nights, I will set up a tape and let it run.
Does BBC America run arts programs besides period dramas? I see the channel advertised when I watch cable in a hotel room, but I've never seen the channel itself.
P.S. We will have cable again when they offer two-way, broadband Internet in my neighborhood. Unless the phone company beats them there first with DSL. No progress on either front. It's weird, I live in the sticks, but the homes surrounding me are pretty high income. I'd think the cable company would find our neighborhood to be a ripe plum for the picking if they offered two-way broadband.
