Green Living Comes to Cable (even HD)

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

As a marker of the true arrival of the green lifestyle, an entire cable channel devoted to all things green is now available on most major cable carriers. From their website Planet Green isĀ ‘the first and only 24-hour eco-lifestyle television network with a robust online presence and community. Launching in June 2008, on-air content will reach 50 million homes with more than 250 hours of original green lifestyle programming’ (Planet Green). The channel is part of the Discovery Network, and if you want to check availability in your area go to their handy channel finder. The channel is even available in HD. Featured shows include ‘Alter Eco’ – an eco lifestyle makeover series; ‘Greenovate’ – house renovation with a green flair; ‘G-Word’ – a green lifestyle magazine show; ‘Hollywood Green’- news from Hollywood about green issues; ‘Mean Green Machines’ – a show dedicated to all forms of green transport; ‘Wa$ted’ – a show devoted to helping us reduce our environmental footprint, and many others. At last…. a good reason to still keep cable TV.
