Oh it's not like Pub-D-Hub at all.You don't have your choice of movies to watch.It's more like turning on the tv and watching something that's already showing on XYZ channel,and much like tv you won't automatically know what the title of the movie is unless you saw it from the beginning.
The thing i like most about the channel is all the really old commercials,most if not all i forgot about decades ago.Like the commercial about having to clear the lot of the 1960 Chevy Impala's to make room for the "NEW" '61 Corvair's. and the Virginia Slims cigarette commercial...."you've come a looong way baby!!!! There's a LOT of really cool old commercials,and i'm sure i haven't seen them all.Many are in B&W,but some,like the ~1968 Virginia Slims commercial are in color.
There are new commercials too,but most seem to be from the early-mid '60's.The Camel cigarette commercial(being in B&W)may be from the early days of the Vietnam war,but it could also be from the Korean war era too.I dunno.
The PQ isn't always the greatest,just so-so,but some of the movies are quite clear and sharp.On the weekends they change the format a bit and show diff.things but i'm still waiting to find out what they show.There is an ad promoting the weekend lineup but i forgot what it is.
