Comcast yanked Asian American television network iaTV from its San Francisco channel offerings last month, and apparently nobody noticed. The cable company cited low viewership as the reason.
I have to admit, I rarely watched iaTV. One reason was the channel guide never showed what was on iaTV, so it was hard get interested. That said, I do believe, as iaTV Media President Adam Ware says, that having English-language programming for Asian Americans is important.
iaTV is still available in Los Angeles, New York, Hawaii and a few other areas with large Asian American populations.
Does anybody out there watch iaTV on a regular basis? Or if you don’t have access, would you watch if you could?
