A better View of your TV listings

Advocate readers rely on our television listings magazine — and so we want our listings to be as reliable as possible.

Advocate readers rely on our television listings magazine — and so we want our listings to be as reliable as possible.

That’s why we’re introducing the new Advocate View magazine today. The new publication, inserted in your Friday Advocate, replaces TV Today.

We have a new provider for our listings that will offer greater accuracy and more variety than ever before.

Like all new features, it’s a work in progress. There are elements we’re still tweaking, and missing features you may want added. But we’ll keep working on it to get it just right.

We’ve retained some of the familiar pieces of our weekly guide, including the basic format.

And we’ve added new features — like the Tonight’s Pick columns on each grid page — to help you make your viewing choices. We’ve reorganized our Sports Zone section by sports, so it’s easier to find the event you’re looking for. And we’re offering a greater variety of articles on television and entertainment events and personalities.

Tuning in has never been more complicated, or more rewarding, for the television viewer. With the ever-growing roster of channels available to viewers, and the option of a variety of cable and satellite suppliers, it is more critical than ever for viewers to find out accurately what’s on TV.

So we’ve also added a number of TV, movie and entertainment-related features to our website, bprda.wpengine.com, to further help you sort through your viewing choices.

TV and movie listings are now just a click away thanks to a new feature added at bprda.wpengine.com

Through our new online entertainment service, visitors can check out local TV programming by simply entering their postal code.

Readers can also find what’s playing at local theatres, watch upcoming movie previews, read the latest entertainment news, and see reviews on new movies and shows.

Whether you’re a traditional reader, on online Advocate reader, or a little of both, we’re giving you a new view on the world of entertainment.
