Here's some more Prevue Guide clips previously mentioned on the Discord (both of which came from Los Angeles):

The first one is from February 15, 1989 which ironically also features that one promo of The Weather Channel (the one with Dan Chandler).

The second one is from March 8, 1992 featuring the Prevue Guide soap opera promo.

Already posted in the Discord server, however here's some Prevue Channel footage from either 1994 or 1995 (or possibly later?) https://youtu.be/oUGggZnIlDo

Not a new video - but something I hadn't seen before. An ad for advertising on the EPG channel, complete with an Electronic Program Guide jingle! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYrNEkS_RYQ

Also, here's an EPG (perhaps Apple II?) clip from 1985: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksMuLqP4_nM

Great find! This is really cool. I knew that the EPG logo had the same typeface as the Prevue logo, but I didn't know that it was ever used on-air. And interesting to see that they called it "The EPG" (I had seen that mentioned in a press release before). And that '80s jingle...

Haha great point... clearly my memory back to 2012 is spotty :)

Well, I'm still excited about the video 8 years later ;)

Not really much, but there's a few seconds of TV Guide Channel footage in some EAS test video:

Now we have video evidence that the switch from all-capitals to mixed-case listings occurred at some point in early 1994.

I think thats when the black list software went de-commissioned and was replaced with the blue grid.

Some new finds on Prevue, including a Prevue Latino clip from 1995 on YouTube.

Prevue Latino (from an unknown cable provider in Latin America) in October 1995 by "Telearchivos Retro": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv3tvHUTaw0
(Another example of program "changes" in some channels due to censorship and at the 23:14 mark, they've used the new station ID of Prevue Latino with the "eye" logo, which was used by the U.S. Prevue in '96, depsite their header at the grid carrying the old logo.)

Prevue First '98 promo on Prevue (now with audio!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oqq7Ut7eniU
(Similar to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BIu9YhIEcw at the 10:23 mark, video with audio is partial not the complete commercial)

BONUS: There is already a video using Prevue emulation with some listings and the top is an informercial (title: [PREVUE] Atlantic Broadband: Aiken, SC (4/29/20)), sadly though the data didn't include movie summaries or copyrights at the end of the listings cycle like the real Prevue would do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S1HmkiERWM
