I'm curious..why is everyone so gungho on BBC America? I've never watched it so I truely do not know.
Everyone isn't but, just like ESPN, TNT, etc., there are some who are (including me). Take a look at the BBCA website, they have some very interesting shows (e.g. The Hour, Luther, AbFab, Top Gear) that don't appear on other channels. Granted, they also show endless reruns of shows that do
appear elsewhere (e.g. Kitchen Nightmares) but that happens on most every station.
Again, perhaps not your cup of tea (!) but certainly worthy of the interest of many. After having BBCA-HD on Dish for so many years I really miss it on FIOS.
