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.
