The Tube goes down the tubes
Has anyone else noticed this? I was flipping over to "House" tonight and saw this message on 21.2, KXRM's digital subchannel, which featured a national music channel similar to what MTV used to be:
"Dear friends of The Tube music network we regret to inform you of the fate that has befallen The Tube music network on October 1, 2007 The Tube will cease its national broadcast. Thank you for inviting The Tube music network into you (sic) lives.
Sincerely, The Tube music network staff"
Meanwhile, over on The Tube's Web site, we find this:
"Dear friend of THE TUBE Music Network, We regret to inform you of the fate that has befallen The Tube Music Network.
October 1, 2007 The Tube ceased its national broadcast.
Viewers, Artists, Music Companies, Investors, Business Partners, TV stations, Cable companies, Advertisers , Friends and our creative partners @Radical Media - your support of The Tube has always been highly valued and appreciated. The collective efforts of this team, fueled by the letters we received from viewers, sustained THE TUBE as it struggled through the financial limitations that ultimately contributed to its incapacitated state.
Thank you for inviting The Tube Music Network into your life.
The Tube Music Network staff"
Although I didn't spend a lot of time watching random music videos, it's fascinating to see its demise, isn't it?
