I know this happened along time ago, by the Sci-Fi channel did some renovations and then changed their name to SyFy.

What I want to know is why? Absolutely nothing changed other than their own commercials and such. It's like... What was even the point of changing anything?

I know it's not that big of a deal, but for some reason, I don't like it. It's not the Sci-Fi I know and love, even though it still shows me the Ghost Hunters and corny, low-budget Sci-Fi movies every Saturday night that I love so much.

But anyways, does anyone know why they changed? Also, what's your guys' opinions on it?

Who cares? "Mega Shark VS Giant Octopus" is on right now.

ON SYFY!

Best. Cheesy movie. Ever.

IT RISES!

I think that they did it to "appeal to the younger generation"

Sigh

They are trying to keep up with the times and the hip people of this new generation, just in case it all goes wrong again.

Fits onto Guide channels better. From my experience, they list channels with 3-4 characters, maybe a hyphen, and Sci-Fi got shafted by that, and they wanted to be mre appealing through the guide channel.

Or something completely different.

This is why:

“The name Sci Fi has been associated with geeks and dysfunctional, antisocial boys in their basements with video games and stuff like that, as opposed to the general public and the female audience in particular,” said TV historian Tim Brooks, who helped launch Sci Fi Channel when he worked at USA Network.

C'mon, man. We're just kidding. We all know that drummers are important.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

It's not quite on the same scale as when TechTV became G4, sorry.


True...


I liked G4 a lot better though

A commercial said it was due to the fact that they have HDTV broadcasting or something.


Well, I don't have an HDTV, so...

They should buy me one to make me a happy customer again

I think changing it was unnescesary.
