Maximum Exposure

television Published: February 19, 2008
   Of course, there are more television channels out there than are listed in The Oklahoman’s TV Week. The print would be awfully small if room was made for all of them.

   TV Week, however, does list programming schedules for 76 channels in the Metro book (distributed in the Oklahoma City area) and 78 channels in the Tulsa/State book (although 15 of them are local affiliates for ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and PBS). That’s more channels than most TV books offer.  

   But still, some good ones are left out. Encore Westerns, WE, SoapNet, ESPNU, TV One, Science Channel, Lifetime Movie Network, Outdoor Life, Toon Disney, Gospel Music Channel, not to mention the digital channels such as OETA-Okla, KTBO’s Church Channel and KOPX’s QUBO Kids.  

   So in this space, special announcements from the networks not listed in TV Week will be made.    We don’t want you to miss anything good.
