August 12, 2002
Seattle, Wash. – ResearchChannel is coming to Seattle! On August 26, ResearchChannel will premiere on, offering a new and unique lineup of health, medicine, technology and science programming from the nation’s leading universities and research organizations to viewers on ATT’s Broadband cable system channel 76. In partnership with the University of Washington (UW), ResearchChannel will air as part of, the UW’s experimental cable channel . Viewers can watch ResearchChannel programs daily from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, and on Saturdays and Sundays from midnight to 5:00 a.m. as well as 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

ResearchChannel brings viewers the opportunity to get information as it is reported by the scientists involved in research endeavors -- from astronomy, medicine, computer science and engineering, and oceanography to politics, childhood development, arts and literature, law, and much more. ResearchChannel consortium participants provide the best they have to offer in content such as Stanford University's "Women & Health" series, or the National Institutes of Health's "Science of Complementary and Alternative Medicine." Astronomy buffs enjoy Yale's "A Tour From the Kitt Peak National Observatory," while other viewers like meeting face to face with the fifty greatest contemporary thinkers in America in the "Closer to Truth" series.

Blaine B., an IT Manager, had this to say about discovering the ResearchChannel: "I have consumed many hours of your channel and your wide range of programming is absolutely fantastic, and I look forward to many continued hours of learning and thought provocation."

Created as a channel for experimental programming, currently broadcasts Traffic TV, an experimental resource to improve transportation efficiency and reduce travel times by providing rush-hour traffic updates so viewers can get a forecast of their morning and evening commutes. The lineup on also showcases NASA programming, including real-time coverage of launches, missions, and other scientific endeavors. ResearchChannel adds to the format another information resource direct from the original source.
