• Fox Considering Simpsons' Channel
  • Posted 40 months ago by Jack Lowe · culture · 32642 Views
  • American broadcasting company Fox are supposedly considering rolling out an "all Simpsons'" channel. Speaking at a recent media conference, the Chief Operating Officer at News Corp - Chase Carey - said the company is looking for new ways to increase their revenue from the long-running show and said they are seriously considering the option.

    The Simpsons is just about to kick off its 23rd season and is well on its way to the 500th episode, but apparently still shows "no signs of slowing down." If the channel does go ahead, however, it won't be for a number of years because the show is still airing through Fox and is doing well. Should production of the series finish at episode 500 though, the channel would be able to air episodes back-to-back, 24/7, for a solid week, without having to show a repeat.

    • That's great. At least for Americans. I don't think that a Simpsons Channel would be available in Europe.
