    That's a good channel, I watch it every once in a while. That would suck if it went off the air :(

    I have never really watched TechTV given where I am based, however I have heard a lot of good things of it, not to mention, just the idea of having a TV channel specializing in PC Stuff sounds just great.

    I just bought the thing as one of my optional channels - if it goes down the crapper I'm going to be pissed. Actually it oculd be a good thing - say the trash anime unleashed (/me hides from papa) and ad in another tv show that is geared for a bit more advanced computer users that would be awesome.

    I have suggested they ad a more advanced show twice, I encourage others to do that. feedback@techtv.com I think.

    Yo... TechTV is great. Everyone can learn from that channel no matter how smart you think you are. I really hope it stays on. Its worth paying extra for.
