FEN-TV

Tue Aug 23, 2005 6:58 am

Hi guys,
Back in the mid-80s I lived in the Phillipines and our condominium provided cable TV that included the U.S. Armed Forces Far-Eastern Network TV (FEN.)

It was cool because it was the only channel that provided contemporary American programs back then. My favourite was Married with Children!

Anyway, their programming was military-based, with military-directed ads (priceless!), etc. One cool service was the MAC flight schedules out of Subic and Clark, which included aircraft type.

My question is whether US Military TV still exists today, in places where there is heavy US presence.

Japan? Italy maybe?

Yeah, Armed Forces Radio and Television, visit them at www.afrts.osd.mil
Satellite TV is everywhere too.

What is also real big in Iraq and other places overseas is making multimedia collages on laptops using personal cameras and videocams.
