(Washington, DC – May 27, 2010) goodtv.com, the only video broadband site that delivers the best of 1960’s television to consumers, has formally launched its service at http://goodtv.com
goodtv.com is the brainchild of a pair of longtime television executives, Mark Ringwald, former VP, programming for AmericanLife TV and Jeff Grimshaw, former VP, on-air promotion for Turner Broadcasting. “As Cable TV networks move away from their niche programming to become more broadbased, we are certain that narrowcast broadband endeavors like goodtv.com will become the television viewer’s next destination. goodtv.com provides a great destination for people who want to take a step back in TV time – when television was good.”, said Ringwald.
“Once upon a time viewers fled broadcast TV because of limited viewing options”, remarked Grimshaw. “Now with the homogenization of cable TV programming, consumers will seek out the niches online that have been taken away from them, like great, classic TV from the 60’s. And goodtv.com will fill that need.”
goodtv.com not only presents hand picked episodes from 1960’s TV classics like “Gilligan’
s Island”, “Star Trek”, “The Addams Family”, “I Dream of Jeannie” and many more, but they are organized into their original nights of viewing, such as “Friday Night from 1961” or “Wednesday Night From 1964”. And goodtv.com offers 1960’s TV fans much more with time capsule overviews, viewer polls and trivia quizzes for prizes.
is all about aggregating content to recreate the TV experience that Baby Boomers grew up with,” explained Ringwald. “These materials are scattered throughout the web or buried deep within sites. Our goal is to bring it all together in a single entertaining, easy to find, destination – or ‘Channel’ – with the added ability to empower viewers with the interactive features that only broadband can provide.”
