Okay, it’s not a news channel. But still, this sounds promising:
While the network figures to skew more female, it will feature original, reality-oriented programming on topics, Garabedian said, that are relevant to all young adults, including dating, education, style, drugs, trends and marriage. Shows include Common Ave., which seeks out responses to common issues from ordinary people; Dinner, a roundtable discussion of issues over a meal; and The Roomies, a The Real World-type series that places five young strangers in a house.
So will XY.TV be “NPR, except cool” or Open House Party 24/7? We’ll see.
Update: Uh-oh. When I read “roundtable discussion of issues over a meal,” I was thinking, like, “Do we need national health insurance?” Turns out it’s not quite that sophisticated.
