All advertising, all the time

For Brits who think advertising is the most entertaining part of television, there is now the Advert Channel, a new digital satellite channel devoted to nothing but ads 24 hours a day. It launched on satellite provider SkyTV earlier this week with telegenic presenters and programs such as Ad Chat, a live chat show about the top commercials; Advert Focus, ads making the news; Adverts for You, featuring funny, sad, and controversial spots; and Adverts Today, which looks at commercial production.
The Advert Channel also highlights new spots from around the world as well as golden oldies with shows themed around spots from the '60s through the '90s, celebrity ads, and is also looking for submissions from amateur commercial producers. On its Web site, http://www.theadvertchannel.tv, visitors can request, view or download their favourite spots.
