And, with some, there is a great deal of irony between the format then versus the format now
  1. A&E - Formerly Arts & Entertainment with an emphasis on the arts
  2. AMC - American Movie Classics - The name says it all
  3. TLC - The Learning Channel with and emphasis on shows that taught
  4. MTV - Music Television with all videos all the time
  5. Bravo - Originally focused on fine arts and film
  6. CNN Headline News - A national news show broadcast every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day
  7. The Weather Channel - The weather forecast literally repeated over and over and over 24 hours a day
  8. VH1 - A little, more adult contemporary version of MTV with videos 24 hours a day
