iaTV pulled from San Francisco cable system

Comcast yanked Asian American television network iaTV from its San Francisco channel offerings last month, and apparently nobody noticed. The cable company cited low viewership as the reason.

I have to admit, I rarely watched iaTV. One reason was the channel guide never showed what was on iaTV, so it was hard get interested. That said, I do believe, as iaTV Media President Adam Ware says, that having English-language programming for Asian Americans is important.

iaTV is still available in Los Angeles, New York, Hawaii and a few other areas with large Asian American populations.

Does anybody out there watch iaTV on a regular basis? Or if you don’t have access, would you watch if you could?
