What Do You Want to See on the HUB TVs?

Throughout the HUB, various televisions are placed for students’ daily use, perfect to enjoy over a Panda Bowl or to kill time with between classes. Of all of the HUB TVs, the big screen is obviously the most visible and popular.

Most of the time, this television is set to CNN’s Headline News (HLN) network, allowing students to bask in the insightful commentaries on the most hard-hitting topics of Nancy Grace, Jane Velez-Mitchell and Dr. Drew Pinsky.

It’s no secret that some students aren’t too keen on the channel selection, yet to date nothing has changed. However, this is finally in the works, albeit a tad overdue.

The HUB Advisory Committee has established a new subcommittee charged with TV channel selection for seven of the HUB’s televisions (the rest fall under the jurisdiction of food services). Locations for these televisions include outside elevators on each floor, near the HUB auditorium, and most importantly, the big screen on the first floor.

The channel selection is virtually the same as those available through on-campus cable service. The basic networks and cable channels are all available, as well as various digital channels that include international news networks such as BBC America, Univision and TV5.

With that being said, there are many options for each of the televisions in question. Should the committee keep with a news network, perhaps a more esteemed one? Or maybe the big screen should be devoted to ESPN or other sports programming?

So, Penn State, what do you want to see on the HUB TVs?
