I watch the Military Channel been doing it since I knew there was one. they do have a limited amount of programming. and they have been showing non military stuff to bolster their schedule. I assume by the new name that they will be showing military stuff and other stuff too.

I will wait to see what happens after they change names...

after all scifi is still scifi after it became syfy

Military Channel should be re-branded the Hitler Channel as I would say a good 25%+ of the content involves Hitler or WW II.

The word “hero” has become so overused today that it has lost all meaning. One is not a “hero” just because he volunteers or shows up or does his job very well; a hero rises head-and-shoulders above all of those good people to lead them against all odds. Over two decades in Marine Corps infantry, I only knew a handful of genuine heroes. I knew many fine and brave men, and the few heroes among them were truly special.

Before it was the Military Channel, it was called Wings.

BINGO! I agree 100%! Being a hero is the new, "Everybody Gets A Trophy" program.

They stole that title from the 1990's History Channel, which use to be the "All Hitler All the Time Channel", but is now the "Alien and Paranormal" History Channel

I wonder if they will keep showing Hitler now. I know they use it as filler but at least it keeps people knowledgeable about his horrific crimes.

like "the Snakehead", this "insert name" vs that "insert name" films..
all very low budget, it's bad sci-fi, but it's still sci-fi (syfy).

Bitcoin! er, Bingo! I can see this morphing into everybody is a hero, and heavily loaded to minorities. They’ll begin with a season of bullying “heroes”, etc.

An example sadly not heeded by the majority of America.

Lucky you. Other than sports, the only thing on TV is basically the History Channel (I & II) and Science and Military. If they rename the Military Channel, and continue to highlight heroes, it will be more like the Readers’ Digest used to be than anything else on TV is.
I’ll continue to check it out.
