Albeit it is believed the phenomenon we all know as TV Western, took birth in 1949, reached an explosive peak in 1959, and kind of started fading out in the 1960s—the truth is America’s fascination with it never really died out. Be it the classic Western movies such as The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, or TV series like The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp and The Wild West—millions across America still love watching a lone horseman ride across their TV screens!
Growing up, characters from the “Old West” and movies like Along Came Jones and Vera Cruz have fascinated many among us with tales from the West. And, if there is one place that brings a programming lineup that includes Western originals, documentaries, and action, it sure is the INSP channel!
An American digital cable and satellite TV channel, INSP is owned by Inspiration Ministries and is headquartered in Indian Land, South Carolina. Formerly called The Inspiration Network, the TV channel saw its launch in 1978. Fast forward to 2015, INSP was available to over 80 million American households.
Going back to INSP’s original roots, the channel was a non-profit network between 1991 and 2010. But INSP underwent a rebranding in 2010 and was then launched as a family entertainment network. INSP’s slogan ‘Heroes Live Here’ perfectly fits the network’s current programming lineup—which gives viewers a great taste of the rowdy shenanigans of nomadic cowboys, bounty hunters, and outlaws, mixed with the ever-living pleasure of watching tough guys in action and the ultimate triumph of good upon evil.
So, if you are looking forward to rekindle your love for these adventurous voyages, tune into the INSP channel—and let the TV Western phenomenon unfold on your home screens with popular shows such as Bonanza, Mountain Men and Gunsmoke. The good news is if you are a Spectrum cable TV subscriber, you get access to the INSP channel with all Spectrum TV packages.
Spectrum cable TV plans are classified in three tiers—SELECT, SILVER and GOLD. Spectrum TV SELECT offers 125 channels and suffices for a household with moderate TV entertainment needs. But if you would like to go a step further, and garnish your in-home entertainment regime with premium programming and sought after sports networks, Spectrum SILVER or GOLD package, can be a perfect fit.
Rest assured, once you switch to Spectrum cable TV service, you will not only find an avenue to lose yourself in the stories of outlaws, gamblers, and bounty hunters from the “Old West”, but much more—because the Spectrum channel lineup is extensive, and the perks of subscribing to the service are many.
