Cease of operation/cancellation
Per a statement at The Tube's website, the network announced that they were suspending operations, effective October 1, 2007 (though some stations closed the feed earlier). According to the statement, "financial limitations ultimately contributed to its incapacitated state". Many stations carrying the station have been informed to direct viewers to http://www.thetubetv.com/ for futher information and several are now searching for content to replace the channel over the air and on cable systems.
The last song played on the network was A3's "Woke Up This Morning" (Chosen One Mix). The song finished exactly at 12:00am EST with a black screen. This might have been done on purpose by the network, as The Sopranos television series ended in a similar fashion. The Sopranos used the song as their opening theme for its run.
Didn't hear about this 'til just today, but it's gone now. Now I can't watch my favorite station whenever I go to my Dad's house 'cuz it no longer exists.
