Television Is Going To The Dogs

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene.

Television is going to the dogs. The satellite company DIRECTV recently introduced DOGTV to its line up. The channel, just for canines, will cost humans 5.99 a month. The programs feature soothing music and animations. DOGTV's CEO says this helps ease the loneliness and boredom that pets feel when they're left at home all day.

Hey, what do you think?

GREENE: What's that, boy? You'd rather have a dog station on the radio?

(LAUGHTER)

GREENE: Good dog. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
