Prevue Guide from November 15, 1992.:

It features two promos for "Earthvue" and has a "Prevue Tonight" promo sponsored by "AddItUp" with the music as heard in the segment called "Prevue's SportsScope" (I wish that was found along with other segments like "Movievue" and other Prevue Guide/Channel promos).

I don't think this has been posted yet, but here's a TV Guide Channel branding package video, which is fun: https://vimeo.com/55695821

Also, this was posted a long time ago on a different thread, but here's a look at the late '90s Prevue package: https://vimeo.com/20022094

Something else that I also stumbled across the Vimeo site...

While I was searching some TV Guide Channel/Network-era clips from the early to mid-2000s on Vimeo, I found some more promos and segments.

The first clip titled "TV Guide Channel- CSR" features a short promo featuring former TV Guide Channel host Katie Wagner mentioning that at the time, 40% viewers still influenced viewing on the then-TV Guide Channel, yet also even mentions that 80% of Digital Cable customers still watched TV Guide Channel, even with the TV Guide Interactive Digital Cable program guides. I believe this promo was likely from sometime around 2000-03.

This second clip titled " TV Guide - Metallica featurette" features an interview segment with Metallica for their featured title song for Mission Impossible 2 (circa early 2000s). More importantly, the one thing that I even noticed is that the clip seems to be edited since notice how the "gold grid" keeps "jerking" around back and forth and repeats back to the same listings from earlier instead of showing full scrolling listings. The grid listings appear to be from New York City, but seem to be likely a mock-up like in the first clip.

The third clip titled "Spots and Promos-2". In the first clip, former TV Guide Channel host Katie Wagner once again appears as she was mentioning about a contest for a trip for VH1's Storyteller's Live. The second clip in the same video features a "TV Guide Family Finds" promo mentioning Stuart Little on AT&T Digital Cable Pay-Per-View (post-TCI & MediaOne merger, and pre-dating the DirecTV merger). This montage appears to be from Sneak Prevue from around 2000 since it also features some additional random Pay-Per-View promos.

The fourth clip titled "TV Guide MashUp" was from the beginning of TV Guide Channel's format change from a once useful 24/7 information-based automatically scrolling program guide channel, to a "infotainment-based, celebrity tabloid E!-clone channel". In the first clip, it features the "Big Guide" from 2005. I believe was likely to promote it's then-newly launched Video-On-Demand service which was called "TV Guide Spot" (also around that same time, the magazine also was beginning to phase out the traditional pocket-sized regionalized print listings with the larger tabloid-style format that the magazine has today). I do remember seeing those Video-On-Demand-exclusive TV Guide Spots back in the mid-2000s. Interestedly, the final few clips from that same montage seems to feature some even earlier TV Guide Channel promos from the early 2000s.

Here's another one titled "TV Guide Shows" which features even more "TV Guide Spot" VOD segments (circa 2005). This again was mostly exclusive to their former VOD service back then.

Finally, this last clip was from the TV Guide Network era when they became more of a general entertainment channel by then (for the most part on most cable systems anyway). I pretty much mostly lost interest of the channel at that point back then, but I still want to share it anyway since it predated Pop.

Wow - that's really something. Thanks for sharing! Totally looks like Prevue Junior... shocked that that would still be in use!

Two videos of Tv Guide's listing on Pop from 2016 that were not posted here (i think):

More footage from Frankfort Plant Board Cable, September 20, 2019. Unlike the previous recordings brought up here, this isn't anything really Prevue, rather it's a clone known as "OnGuide".

Also, there's Comic Sans.
