That translates into almost ZERO advertising rates. More viewers watch C-SPAN than that.


I'm not sure they even have advertising, when I have watched the only thing I recall seeing are pledge drives and the selling of DVD's of their programs, t-shirts, and other stuff

I think it operates more like a local public TV station.

I'd assume the only real value the network has is its access to some viewers on cable and satellite providers.

eta, on further reflection I am certain that is the case as they make a big deal out of receiving no corporation funding/advertising and claim that they are the people's network free of all bias except thier own.

That may very well be true. I've never watched that channel. I'm not sure it's even offered on Cox here in Baton Rouge.

The only value of that channel has to be in its real estate or FCC license or something...

Are you sure you aren't confusing it with Link TV? What you're describing sounds like that network.
