Question The Accessible Channel (TAC) now Accessibility Media TV (AMItv)

I'm not exactly sure when it happen but it appears The Accessible Channel(TAC) has either changed its name to Accessible Media TV(AMiTV) or has been bought by this company? Not sure which.

I'm not sure if this is for all providers, but at least on Rogers IPG # 888 it appears to have changed. The programing appears to be the same with the voice over.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Accessible Media has always been their owners, cause its definitely a much more relevant name than "National Broadcast Reading Service" (referring to VoicePrint)

From Wikipedia;

Quote:
The National Broadcast Reading Service rebranded itself to Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) in 2010. In January 2012, The Accessible Channel was rebranded AMI TV, aligning its brand with its parent company.

I'm sorry, but that's a terrible choice of a rebrand name.

TAC is a bad name, but TIC TAC or TIC TAC TOE would be even worse.

At least Ami means "friend" in French.

If you have trouble hearing or reading, you can always ask a friend for help ... or simply watch AMItv.

AMI-TV is a friend that can entertain you!

AMI-TV ... Yes, we are talking to YOU!

That connection might be a bit stronger if the channel was a French language service

Oui (yes), but according to the AMItv website:

"Though AMI-tv is an English–language service, it broadcasts a small amount of French-language programming, up to four hours a week, with description and captioning all in French. Weekly French programs include Little Mosque, Ray Bradbury Theatre, The Border, The Canadians and Emily Of New Moon."

--------------------

I suppose a full French-language version of the channel could be called FAMI-TV (suck on that, Family channel).

Coming soon to an imaginary TV near you:

FAMISH-TV ... The world's first French-language channel for the Amish.

FAMISHED-TV ... The world's first French-language cooking channel for the Amish.

Fine. I'll quit while I'm behind.
