More on GSN's "evolution"...

[quote name=\'WhammyPower\' date=\'Dec 10 2003, 12:45 PM\'] According to Trio's Terms & Conditions of Use:

"Trio Network, Universal Television Networks, part of the Universal Television Group (www.universalstudios.com), a division of Vivendi Universal Entertainment (VUE), and all subsidiary and affiliated companies."

Note: I also have DirecTV.  (I have been wanting to switch back to digital cable for months!) [/quote]
 It looks like Universal scooped up several properties along the way (Trio's website used to have the StudiosUSA logo--now USA and Bloomberg TV are also in Universal's fold).  Thanks for the clarification.

I just wish my digital cable carried Boomerang (I miss the classic stuff Cartoon Network used to show).

 Hey I'd be happy to have you take the Boomerang channel off of DirecTV, if you could do that. Everytime my niece comes over we have to watch cartoons....last time she stared at the Flintstones for 3 hours...

Remember, USA and Trio are in the process of being sold to NBC.  Bloomberg doesn't go with them, since its under different ownership.

  • Just leave the set; that’d be terrific.

 Boomerang, last I knew, was part of the optional $5.00/month "family pak", which also contained SoapNet and DIY.

 Assuming we're still talking about DirecTV here, these days, Boomerang is part of the $1.00/month "Plus" addition to their regular "Total Choice" channel package.  Yes, that's one dollar for about 15 extra channels.  I assume the pricing makes sense to someone at DirecTV.

I was indeed talking about DirecTV.

However, I was unaware of the change.  While living at my parents house, we have different TV providers.  My parents utilize DirecTV, however, I use (and pay) for digital cable through Mediacom.

Interestingly, they have given Nick GAS an upgrade to the top digital tier, along with G4; and moved GSN and Trio to tier #2.

And speaking of Nick GAS, I am not sure if either Brakus, fostergray82, or wxfrcaster has mentioned it yet, but Cox will be adding that to their digital tier (in Hampton Roads) come Dec. 31.  They will have it on the same tier they have GSN on right now (it'll be on ch. 252).
