Back in the day, our cable remote control had this handy sticker slapped onto its back that listed all the channels at our disposal. Now, let's be honest, after about two months of handling and wear, that sticker would start to look pretty nasty – all grimy and worn-out. And if you didn't act quick, in about five months, it became a jumbled mess of illegible scribbles. So, the million-dollar question: if you hadn't managed to get those channel numbers firmly rooted in your brain by then, what on earth were you supposed to do? Were you seriously going to grab that TV guide from the end table? Yeah, right! You've just settled into your comfy spot, and that guide might as well be miles away. That's where the Cable Channel Guide swooped in to save the day! Flip to that guide, and voilà, there's the entire list of channels you could access. Granted, it wouldn't give you the scoop on what was playing on each channel – for that, they had another channel in the works (eventually). But hey, for the time being, this guide did the job. And, to sweeten the deal, they'd loop in that evergreen music we all seem to adore, playing on repeat, over and over and over again.
