Atheist TV
PZ Myers has done his own review of it here. Rather thorough.

Smile RE: Atheist TV
How could anyone stand to watch this channel? Wouldn't the programs start and stop through random chance or something? Smile

Seriously, I hope it doesn't show a lot of Atheist porn about Madalyn Murray O'Hair's alleged greatness, because I don't share that assessment of her legacy.

Though I would like to see a show which acknowledges that her younger son, the atheist activist Jon Murray, never moved out of his mother's home and apparently never had a girlfriend. (I heard the latter from two American Atheist members who knew the Madalyn and her family.) Can you say, "40 year old virgin" (at the time of his murder in 1995)? At least to the best of my knowledge, no woman now in her 50's has come forward to claim that she dated Jon decades ago.

I find this aspect of Madalyn's story especially weird because the accounts of her I've read portray her as a sex-obsessive who displayed statuary of copulating animals in her Austin, Texas, home. Madalyn in her Playboy interview even says that she thought that girls should start to have sexual relationships as young as 13, and the boys at 15. So she clearly had a vision of a godless world as a swinging sexual utopia.

Yet this utopia apparently didn't exist under her own roof, at least for Jon.

RE: Atheist TV
Just a heads up: in the last week the Sound Reason channel also got updated on Roku to include a wider range of content, including some interviews with Christopher Hitchens from when he was promoting God is Not Great. Not technically a TV channel though; just audio.
