If you feel bad about leaving your dog home all day while you work, DirecTV will offer a solution of sorts: TV programming for dogs.
The satellite provider will begin offering DogTV for $5.99 a month in the third quarter, according to Bloomberg. The channel broadcasts content is aimed at canines and includes “scenes with and without other animals, animation sequences and a variety of moving objects,” according to DogTV. Relaxation segments on the channel also show sleeping dogs and some nature scenes accompanied by soothing music.
Next up: DogTV may offer a similar channel for cats. Founder Ron Levi told the BBC last year that cats have been spotting watching the programming too, so that might be a natural area for expansion.
