    Why isn’t BBC America included?

    Why isn’t BBC America included?

    It would be included if it was one of the top 25 cable networks. However, it isn’t.

    You can assume BBC America does not play in the heartland and south. Yet.

    They are in 69% of US TV households, but not clear which are the 31% they are missing.

    It is sad the good summer shows like Suits, B Notice, Riz & Isles, C Affairs, Franklin & Bash, Pains, Roughness etc. are over. It is the best TV during the year.
    Love College and NFL football – and know Fox and ESPN will really dominate ratings.
