Re: [Rant] National Geographic

They can't keep the channel on the air without a revenue stream - that means commercials. They may have started and to get viewers they decided to forgo a solid revenue stream and lost money in the interim but sooner or later - they have to have revenue. No revenue - no channel. Even PBS has commercials to supplement the donation stream.

Same thing for free internet service, phone service etc.... eventually they need a revenue stream so commercials or pure pay has to happen.

NatGeo is not "on the air" (sat TV don't count)

The term is well known and just as good since the signals also go thru the air. It does not lose meaning even if cable is involved.

To me, it has to be a broadcast channel to be "on the air". #justsayn
