Tune In, Turn On

Did you ever sit on your couch on a rainy evening and flip the channels, hoping that ESPN 2 is showing a fishing show, but get disappointed when they are showing another edition of the world series of poker (just how many "world series" does that competition have, anyway?)?

Well, if your like me and can never seem to find a show about fishing or boating when you want to watch it, the times they are a changing. Now there's the Water Channel, which bills itself as "the world’s first television network devoted exclusively to water lifestyle programming". Furthermore, they just announced last week that they have expanded their broadcasting to 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. No more disappointment of finding cardsharks instead of real sharks.

How can you find the new coolest TV channel on earth? Turn your Dish Network to channel 217, or if you're on Time Warner Cable, check channel 130 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, channel 288 in northeast Ohio and channel 187 in Binghamton, New York.

The network says that expansion to other Time Warner Cable systems as well as Cox Cable nationwide will continue this fall, and plans are in place to reach 45 million households nationwide within the year.

Of course, you can learn more about "television's New Wave" at waterchannel.com.
