Yes, There Is Now a TV Channel Just for Dogs

DogTV, a new TV channel available in the US, offers 24/7 programming for the modern dog. There's busy streets, computer-animated moths and frolicking, cross-breed hounds. The channel promises to relax anxious dogs and to entertain bored ones.

DogTV may be saying more about our relationship with our dogs than it does about the dogs themselves. We've transfered civilization's discontents onto our pets. Dogs have gotten depressed and fat along with their owners. They spend much of their lives indoors and inactive. And now, just like us, they can chill in front of the tube as a surrogate for 'real life'.

For more mutt-friendly videos, check out DogTV's YouTube channel.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
