Asian American TV Network Debuts in Hawaii

24-hour Asian American TV network ImaginAsian TV (IATV) premiered here in Hawaii last week on Time Warner's Oceanic digital cable. IATV launched a little over a year ago and is now carried in several markets, including Las Vegas, Denver, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Seattle, L.A., San Francisco, and New York.

IATV's original programming includes recently premiered reality series "Finding My America," about 2 women who encounter assorted Asian Americans during the course of their New York-San Francisco road trip. Hey, what about Alaska and Hawaii?! I'm sure the 42% Asian, 9% Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and some of the 21% Multiracial portions of Hawaii's population want to see themselves on TV.
