Remember that? Like when TV used to cut off at like 2am.


Like after the local news they would show a bunch of syndicated TV shows with all the phone s3x ads and Psychic hotlines. Then at like 2, they would play the national anthem would come on...

then you would get that colorful screen until like 6 am

and cartoons would come on.







Like even HBO used to turn off

Some of the local channels still go "out" (they actually just go off air for a few hours because they do not have anything to run). Especially on Sunday nights.

I work/worked for a television station and every Sunday from like 3am to 6am the station was off air because they did not have any thing to air.

Nowadays, most television stations just air infomercials because they have found that someone is willing to pay something to have it on there.

Only channels that use to do that in our house were the local news channels. Maybe a couple of cable joints, but nothing major. Must have been going on before my time. Nothing about a National Anthem though. sh*t would just cut to that multi color pic.
