The countdown has begun for TechTv!  As I type, someone is drilling holes in the side of my house to mount the satellite dish so I can finally have TechTv and get away from the $100+ digital cable bills each month.  When I called COMCAST to ask about TechTv, they said “Tech what?”  I replied, “It's a channel for geeks who don't what to watch sports all weekend long.”  Their answer was, “Never heard of it.”  Wow, so when the ads say call you “cable provider and request this channel”, they should also add as a disclaimer, “only if they have heard of it”.  Posted on Sunday, November 30, 2003 9:12 AM | Back to top

I hope you are not 100% disappointed with TechTV like I was. I don't think I saw a single entertaining moment of TechTV during the 3 months I had it. Apparently it was a great channel a few years ago when it started but "great channel" doesn't do well in the market so they dumbed it down to a normal lowest-common-denominator Jr. High School XBox fan level entertainment channel.

I was only able to watch it when visiting my parents or my fiance's parents. Kind of crazy that a geek like myself didn't have the geek channel but all other members of my family have it, and they are all from small towns. Actually it is just stupid that you would buy 150+ digital channels in Kansas City and not get a channel such as TechTV, but get the G4 gamers channel. Oh well, I have it now, and it is much high clarity then cable.
