I don’t watch much TBS this time of year (no Braves games), but I was flipping through the channels recently and noticed that their little on-screen logo (or “bug”) has changed. It no longer just says “Superstation,” but now also has as part of its design the number “24.” Coincidentally (or perhaps not), TBS recently moved from channel 21 to channel 24 on my cable system. This has left me curious to know if TBS is now channel 24 on many systems.
It also begins to dawn on my that my user name will soon be inexorably linked to the number 24 in much the same way Mickey Mantle’s name is linked to the number 7, but I digress.
I’m old enough and have had cable TV long enough to remember when TBS still identified itself as Channel 17 WTBS from Atlanta, so this is one part idle curiosity. But I also know that TBS is owned by the same corporation that owns my cable system (TimeWarner), so I’m also not-so-idly curious to know if this is an effort of some kind at national branding.
So, if you don’t mind, please reply with your cable system (TimeWarner, Comcast, Cox, etc.) and what channel TBS occupies. Thanks!
Satellite subscribers are welcome to respond, but my experience has been that satellite channels start well into the hundreds.
