Ready TV will be Arizona version of Create multicast channel

Arizona Public Media is launching a local version of the Create multicast lifestyle channel, to be called Ready TV, starting Dec. 1, reports the Green Valley News & Sun. “Ready TV is very similar to Create but it is programmed locally to accommodate the local Southern Arizona time zone,” said Sue DeBenedette, marketing manager for AZPM. “With Create, it was programmed and scheduled on the East Coast, so that primetime shows did not air in primetime here in Southern Arizona. Scheduling it locally gives AZPM the freedom to program those shows that resonate strongly here in this market rather than being dictated to by a national feed.” The 24-hour channel will include Julia Child shows, Austin City Limits, This Old House and Woodwright’s Shop with Roy Underhill.

    I really liked the food shows on Create, Patti’s Mexican Table, Mexico one plate at at time, all the grilling and BBQ shows by Steven Raichlen, and so on. I don’t like Julia Child as her stuff is too complicated and fancy. I liked all the travels programs on Create. The timing of the shows was ok. I hope you have most of the same shows. I didn’t really like the woodworking but I’m happy for others to have something for them to.
