    You know, a channel that specializes in Shlock, B-Movie, Exploitation, Drive-In, Guilty pleasure Mind Garbage! It seems to me that someone is missing out on a big cash cow. A place where we can view movies that you would normally see on USA up all night, or Mystery Science Theater. In fact, MST3K shoud be it's signature show! I bet not a lot of those kind of movies are royalty-free public domain, too. Anyone familiar with The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film knows what Im talking about.

    And I'd finally get to see The Last Dinosaur again, in all its "seamy" glory! [​IMG]
    Arguably, though, since we already have the USA network, FX, and Lifetime, we're more than halfway there already. (Just add Russ Meyer flicks and stir?)

    The Sci Fi Channel is far cry from what Im looking for. Not to mention, the edit and have commercials.

    That's cool, but how 'bout a Kung-Fu channel? All Kung-fu, all the time. NO COMMERCIALS. Whenever everything else sucks, go watch 24 HOURS OF KUNG-FU MOVIES!!!!!!! I'm amazed this channel isn't up yet. I'd pay 10 a month for it...
    Hi-Yaa!!!! My style will crush your style!

    I believe there is right now an effort to get a martial arts channel going. Supposed to be called the "Black Belt Channel", IIRC, and the idea is to make it a home for both real martial arts competitions like Ultimate Fighting and also playing martial arts movies like the old Shaw Bros. stuff.
