Actually, the "Prevue" 1988 typeface is actually the font "Dodger".

EDIT (about 3 years later): Oh wait, you're referring to TV and Cable logos. In that case, CableDingbats should do just fine (for now, atleast).

The videos you posted are not good enough to make fonts from. They are also missing many characters.

We have the software for the blue grid version of Prevue Guide, but not the others. I simply traced the letters using my font-making program. To replicate those font styles I'd need a copy of the software that ran those systems.

That would be the PrevueList font. Just with some modifications.
