TCM - New Format


Recommended Posts

I have been a loyal TCM viewer for many years. Is it just me or is anyone else disappointed in the new format? I find it way too busy, glitchy and distracting. I am very disappointed in the change. It almost reminds me of when AMC went commercial and changed formats. It was all downhill for them after that. I don't think TCM will go "commercial" even though I fear they may go to more streaming type content  in the future. To be blunt - the new TCM format sucks and I think the ratings going forward will reflect that fact. There is nothing 'classic' about TCM now. Please change back before it is too late.

You are probably not aware of this but TCM does not subscribe to any ratings services.

They made the on-air changes mostly and probably due to the fact that the original sets were built with Robert Osborne was alive and representing the channel. The sets needed updating and to reflect the current on-air personalities. Also, with streaming becoming more and more prevelant, the channel had to change to maintain or keep those who stream more interested in what the channel has to offer.

Unfortunately for you and many others, they are not going to change and go back to the old sets or on-air logo or anything else.

This is the way of the future, and that future is here now.
