That's sadddd. I don't watch these channels because I can't even afford to have cable programming in my living room.. I recognized that it's a dying 'art'.. and I'm always a little confused, at this point, why they're still being made. I think that it's a great marketing tool, provided the video doesn't suck, but beyond that playing the song with just am image of the album art on YouTube accomplishes the same thing, and overall gets just as many (if not more) hits than the video will.
because people will still watch the video on youtube. you throw up a lyric video bam it gets 10,000 views then things slow down but you put out a music video a couple weeks later bam 10,000 views on it and you've managed to get more attention and increased views on both the lyric and music video.
