SciFi Becomes Syfy

Recommended Posts

http://www.icv2.com/articles/news/14515.html

SciFi Channel will change its name to Syfy Channel on July 7th, when it launches the new series Warehouse 13, according to TV Week. The network believes that the new name more accurately reflects content on the channel, which is broader than traditional science fiction. Warehouse 13, about a secret government facility where mysterious relics are stored, exemplifies this broader content.

The new name may make it easier to attract audiences not traditionally attracted to science fiction, particularly female viewers.

Lame. TV just keeps getting worse.

they know they're dicked with the cash cow BSG all done

Caprica wont be nearly as successful and they allowed SGA to ruin the stargate name

Its more like they're changing their name to hide -_-; I wont play their heres 10 episoides wait 8 months for the other 10 bullshit with any show again; I held on for BSG because it was BSG and not some polished turd.

I only watch SciFi for Anime & rarely ECW. So even if they change it to something that goofy it's not going to matter much to me as I hate the majority of their programing anyway.

I'd like to check out SGU but I did sort of promise myself after going through waiting hell with BSG that I wouldnt play the shit again. I can get the eps online I dun need si fi or sy fy or screw the fanbase or whatever they want to call themselves now.

changing the name wont get more women viewers,

women generally dont like sci-fi, a name change wont solve that, unless a women is channel browsing and decides to actually pause on a chanel that has a lol name

i explained it to my GF and she said: Why?? like that will make me watch it cos it has a stupid name

Whenever I watch Sci-fi, there's always weird monster movies on like two legged shark or 3 headed snake that looks totally fake.

I wonder what kind of name Lifetime will change it to to attract male viewers.

:robot:

I don't think they'll ever attract a male audiance... Too many movies about women who have just been "raped" by men. Not that I don't take that problem lightly. Just that they sound like if they could they'd do an all male version of the Holocaust.

      Anybody watching Z Nation? Its no Walking Dead, but this show is starting to make a fan out of me. Its like a Syfy zombie movie turned into a series with better acting and plots. The first 10 minutes of episode 3 got me laughing pretty damn hard after everybody on the road kept getting brutally murdered.
       
      If you haven't watched this yet, I recommend it. Just don't expect any kind of TWD quality.

      I know what I'll be watching July 30th. This looks hilarious.

      As a person who actually paid $60 for this game when it first came out, this pisses me off. The game I paid for was buggy as hell, broken missions, had numerous server issues issues and even server queues. Over the past year Trion has finally fixed all the issues and made the game a complete product.. a product that I should have received a year ago. What I really believe is that Trion planned on the game going Free-to-Play from the beginning and everyone that paid the initial $60 basically crowd-funded this game to completion. In the end I look back and I can see that what I paid for was an early unfinished product that was in a beta for a year until they got enough in game purchase options available and DLC out to make the game free to play and still make money off a new possible flood of customers.
      If you have not played the game before, I do recommend it. It'll be great to play once a week during Defiance Season 2 as there will be new cross over content, weekly episode missions and the entire core game campaign will be completely free. What I do not recommend is buying any of the DLC. I never bought them, but I know someone who has and its definitely not worth the money. I'll play Defiance again for season 2 and a possible season 3 of the Syfy show, but I will not buy another Trion Worlds, Inc. game. If they ever make another game and plan on charging for it, don't bother as it will most likely be a beta for a year and you'll get it free when its actually worth a damn.
