Subject: NEW: TV2NITE-L - Daily US TV Digest
TV2NITE-L on [log in to unmask] Daily US TV Schedule
TV2NITE-L is the mailing list which is used to distribute "tv2nite",
a daily guide to America's favorite pastime -- watching prime time
network and cable television.
"tv2nite" has been designed for those of us who don't get complete
cable listings in their newspaper (or don't get a newspaper), and/or
don't want to shell out $40 a year for TV Guide. It's also for
people who just like the idea of having their evening's entertainment
choices pop up on their computer screen every day when they log in.
Every morning, you'll get a new e-mail which summarizes the evening's
best viewing, followed by a complete programming guide for all major
broadcast and cable networks. This will include cable stations that
many major newspapers don't have the space to list, such as Comedy
Central, the Science Fiction channel, MTV, etc. We'll also let you
know who's scheduled to appear on the evening's late night talk
Of course, even those of us blessed with 70 channels sometimes
experience an evening where there isn't a thing on the tube we have
any desire to see. So we'll also let you know when new videos are
released, on the day they're due to hit the stores. Stick with us
and you'll never have to socialize again.
One cautionary note: we can't provide coverage for local stations --
at least not for the foreseeable future -- so you won't see listings
for syndicated shows like the "Star Trek" series, or for your local
PBS station. We are going to explore different means of sponsoring
this list, however, and if we are able to swing it we'll offer local
editions of the list for major TV markets.
