"In the youth-obsessed world of television, a channel that openly pursues older viewers is showing the kind of fiercely rebellious spirit that even a teenager would have to admire.
The maverick, year-old channel bears a name that embraces its mission: Retirement Living TV. It targets viewers 55 and up with original shows about health, finance, politics and entertainment as well as news.
Carried during the day by providers including DirecTV and Comcast, Retirement Living is available in 29 million homes and online. A "fact book" distributed by the channel points out that among the world's countries, the U.S. has the third-highest total number of people over 65 (almost 40 million), and that 50-plus Americans account for half of the nation's discretionary spending."
