NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk


Premium channels

In the United States, premium channels are networks which cable subscribers must separately order from their basic cable packages. Because premium channels such as HBO, Showtime and Cinemax make their money primarily through subscription costs, they do not require commercial sponsors, and most of their programming airs without commercials and without editing for adult content.
