TV for rural folks
By relling on Sep 16, 2004
Living out on a ranch often means living without cable TV. I don't really miss cable, now that digital satellite is available. If you are a rancher, live in a rural area, or just aspire to be rural, there is a channel especially for you. RFD TV has programming targeted directly at rural folks. You can watch HGTV for weeks, but they won't help you fix your tractor. You can watch Animal Planet for a whole month, and learn more than you ever thought possible about an exotic animal you will never in your life possibly meet, but they won't help you with your hogs, cattle, or chickens, one tiny little bit. You can watch ESPN for a year, and you won't catch a mutton-bustin' contest or a draft horse pull. Just tell them I sent ya.
