Historical Note

TV-Cable Week (TVCW) was a short-lived Time Inc. cable television listings magazine published from April to September of 1983. The idea began in 1979 when Time Inc. created the HBO Task Force to study the expansion of the HBO Program Guides. By 1982 after presentations to the Time Inc. Management Committee then to the Board of Directors, Time Inc. approved the launch and built offices for the magazine in White Plains, NY.

Christopher Meigher was named the publisher in July 1983 after publication began. He had recently served as Director of Corporate Circulation.
