Where are the gardening shows? There are more and gardeners, out there everyday, and no shows that give you any know hows, ideas, tips, etc. I always thought HGTV was Home & Garden, but where are the gardening shows. When I first started watching HGTV it was because of the gardening shows, but they have all since disappeared. We need these back, or some new ones, that show you how, whats new etc. for ordinary people, not professionals. I think this would bring back a lot of new and previous veiwers. Now it seems to be be the House Network
You've likely opened a can of worms with this topic. It's been a recurring one for years now since HGTV began trying to please a different demographic. Somehow they must think that their viewers are not gardeners. Not sure how they got that idea when we've all been complaining.
I no longer watch HGTV hardly at all altho used to be a devoted fan and watched it often when they had gardening shows and good decorating shows.
We now have to get our gardening info online on forums and blogs.

Yes Kimm, I discovered the "CREATE" Channel by accident this year while channel surfing!! (that's the only surfing I'm really, really good at! ) Once in a while I actually catch some interesting shows! It's 'Ch. 133' here in Northern, NJ. (If I reached that channel I was really bored!) I have even watched 'Painting' shows and in a moment of extreme boredom, a Sewing show. (can't sew at all, except a button) Hey, it beats house cleaning, right?!!
Down here in the boonies we are lucky to just have dish/direct available! I'll surf our channels but I don't think "create" is on any of them...we don't have an expensive package. We do have public channel, but they don't have a lot on the one down here...either!

I think it is its own channel. I went to their website and entered my information and my cable company doesn't carry it. If you have antenna you might have it in your area. It's part of PBS. Here is a link to their site if you are interested. http://www.createtv.com/This message has been edited. Last edited by: still tryin,
Very often the cable and satellite companies offer the PBS Create channel in the "enhanced" viewing package, so if you want to watch something other than the inane, mindnumbing, drivel most channels program and must have cable or satellite you must pay extra for it. My TV viewing costs nothing except repairs, periodically, to the antenna or signal booster.

At our place up in Kansas as we're not there full time & we're already paying for Satelite Dish Network here in Texas, we chose to go the converter box route. We get the Create channel there & really enjoy it.

What is the enhanced viewing package? I checked all available channels for cable and satellite and the channel isn't available. I also checked with the FCC and the channel isn't available over the air here.
