A channel that shows nothing but classic Disney. Shows, movies, and I would throw in some shorts between commercials.

Wow Mickey! You have pretty much nailed it! I would love your channel. I would probably clamor for M.A.S.K. to join the Saturday or Weekday lineup.

I don't need my own channel I'll just subscribe to mickeys. Of course I might add in an episode of The Greatest American Hero every now and again.

I suppose it would be a channel where TechTV left off before it started to diverge into mindless nonsense with what G4 became. It'd focus more on technology/science, tech trends, etc. Although I don't think a TV channel like that would be successful in this day and age with the internet and all. It would have to be done in a clever manner in order to make people watch. But yeah it's hard to find a good educational channel which isn't riddled with reality pawn shops or aliens.

That was actually my thoughts, except I was actually thinking more of a channel like how G4 was before the TechTV merger. I had a lot of memories with watching G4 back in those days... but like with the above example with TechTV, it most likely wouldn't work in this day and age on the internet. Especially now when there's all these gaming channels on Youtube dedicated to reviews, let's plays, news, etc. that are produced independently and even professional studios that have made their own gaming content as well. Plus, the fact that Gametrailers shut down recently further solidifies that a G4-like TV channel wouldn't work in this day and age.

I remember on RetroJunk waaay back when, someone posted a link to a live stream site that played classic kid network programming. The site was called "Poopd*ck" which was gross but meant to throw snoops. I watched it a bit but came to the conclusion that for the most part, classic programming from my past was much better in my memory, and not in the present.

Unfortunately there are a lot of programs that fall in that category for me. Shows that I loved, and still do, but they just don't hold up well today. Thankfully there are others that still do.
