The SyFy Channel Needs To Follow "Blood & Chrome" Directly To The Internet
The SyFy Channel just isn't making it as a cable network. Their fortunes are non-existent, television viewers have never like them. The SyFy Channel should take a cue from "Blood & Chrome" and follow this troubled production directly to the Internet.
SyFy Channel needs to go the route of Hulu or Netflix...and become solely an on-line entity. If someone (whoever that may be) is in the mood for a little SyFy Channel, they could go to the SyFy Channel page and watch SyFy Channel programming there. Yes, the SyFy Channel already has a web site, but I'm talking about the entire SyFy Channel network removing its sorry ass from the broadcast airwaves, and replanting it firmly on the Internet. SyFy Channel would be transplanted to cyberspace, and removed from your cable system.
SyFy Channel has repeatedly proven that it just isn't important enough as a cable network to occupy space on the broadcast airwaves. SyFy Channel needs to be demoted down to a little entity on the Internet on the order of Hulu or Netflix. This demotion would scale the SyFy Channel down to what Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern are intellectually capable of dealing with. The three of them just don't have the cerebral and business chops to hold the SyFy Channel's head up high in the highly competitive business of cable television.
The SyFy Channel solely on the Internet would also fulfill all of the marketing dreams of Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern. They could have little pop-up windows on the SyFy Channel page advertising all of the cheapo products they want to sell. Such as "SyFy Channel Ipods" and "SyFy Channel Video Games."
This move would also serve the purpose of getting Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern out of the hair of the general public once and for all. Their insignificance on the Internet would remove them from most people's memories and nightmares.
