Is Tech TV strictly a satellite channel? Or is it possible my cable company doesn’t offer this channel? Also, does anyone know when this 2004 FIRST special will air so I can attempt to track down a copy of it. This sounds like it will be a great video for presentations and possibly recruitment for teams.
Oh well, for the time being it sounds like I’m stuck watching TLC and Discovery. It would have been nice to watch FIRST on tv instead of Trading Spaces and Monster Garage all the time.
I get TechTV in Charter basic cable, but my friends with comcast digital cable say that they have to pay an extra charge if they want TechTV. TechTV is one of my favorite channels. It got added to Charter basic cable in December, 2002. Last year I only remember seeing a short clip of a FIRST competition on Tech Live (a show on TechTV) one time.
This probably means also that the FIRST special is in jeopardy and may not air. You also got to feel bad for BCR and Two Train. Thier teams were all siked up thinking they’d be featured on TV and now thier hopes are dashed.
the special will probably still air. So, thats why i dont get TechTV anymore on Cox cable. I remember a few years ago when A+E followed us(116) and 388(Grundy) around for the build season and VCU for their show competitors. That was fun, especially cus part of it was shot during an all-nighter in my garage. heh. my old garage anyway(sniffle sniffle…i miss my old house and nearly dieing cus of carbon monoxide poisoning because of bad space heaters in my garage during the countless hours building in there during last years blizzard, well at least now we have a heater in our new basement shop).
I remember that. It was on A+E and called The Competition. It was actually a (short lived) series that was hosted by Terri Bradshaw of football fame.
I’ll have to watch it again to see pics of your old garage.
