Do we really have to wait until 2142 though? 😉
Oh wow, I’d never seen that before. I had no idea what they began their broadcasts with but of course they played Star Wars first, haha. I knew that MTV started with Video Killed the Radio Star but I didn’t know there was a whole countdown and then a dedication to Asimov, and then STAR WARS as the beginning of the Sci-Fi Channel.
Such humble little beginnings for what would eventually become… whatever it is now, LOL! Thanks for posting that.
It was about two weeks of that countdown clock with trippy screensaver like graphics and random soundbites from across the genre. I was so thrilled my cable company had it from the ground floor. That dedication still brings a tear to my eye.
Where were you in '77?
