KET gives viewer better feeling, knowing knowledge is gained

Many great shows are archived online, available for anytime viewing

Tami Wilson writes:
I very much agree with this opinion about KET. With internet access, I can watch many shows online, whenever, or almost whenever I choose. Nevertheless, most of the time when I am ready to watch something, I look at the schedule, or just turn to a KET station, and find myself fixated on whatever happens to be running at the time. I also feel better afterward, knowing that I may have gained some knowledge, in addition to being entertained. This applies especially to Ken Burns-produced programs.

And if one has high-speed internet, almost any show can be viewed online, and many episodes are often archived. -Tami Wilson --Tami Wilson
