"There definitely seems to be an endless taste for viewing of this genre that gave us a lot of confidence to go in this direction," said Jeff Gaspin, president of NBC Universal Cable Entertainment.

Any of the estimated 5 million homes that have Time Warner Cable will be able to view the channel when it begins on January 1, 2006. NBC plans to start with reruns of old shows such as “Miami Vice” and “Knight Rider” along with movies like “Scarface” and “Casino.” Without any new programming for at least a couple of years, NBC might have difficulty finding a strong audience although Gaspin attributes the decision to low distribution for the first few years.

Stay tuned for updates.
