This might be a good place to ask, but what exactly is syndicated?
Syndicated = sold to many TV stations (usually from one big TV station family, like Fox in this case, who owns these UPN stations).Originally Posted by Blue Banrigh
So non-cable channels?Originally Posted by Kalliope
Not sure. Ask Americans.
We get farscape on BBC & Sci-fi - but i have the whole collection of Farscape so i'm happy.
i just love to give and recieve GREENS
From Contender UK? I love their boxset edition, can't wait for S4 Boxset (October 10th), but IMHO THE BEST Farscape release now is Region 1 (which you can play on multi-regional DVD players and on computer) Starburst Edition with TONS of completely new commentaries recorded by Claudia, Ben, David Kemper and Rockne O'Bannon last summer and another stuff never released before. And Starburst Edition is REALLY cheap, actually the cheapest of all Farscape editions so far.Originally Posted by oragans

Basically if say Channel 9 (an ABC station where I am) has a 1 hour timeslot they want to fill at 4:00 PM or 1:00 AM or whenever the network itself is not broadcasting its stuff they can fill this time with whatever they like. Often times they buy shows in Syndication such as Friends, Darma & Greg, Farscape, or Stargate and then air those shows during the available free time. The other option are to air the paid advertising or their own news specials.
Cable networks like USA, TNT and others will also by shows in Syndication and play them when they have available timeslots. So Syndication is not specific to cable or non-cable stations.
Joseph Mallozzi -"In the meantime, I'm into season 5 of OZ (where the show takes an unfortunate hairpin turn into "the not so wonderful world of fantasy")"
^^^ Kinda sounds like seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 to me. Thor, ya got Aspirin?
AGateFan has officially Gone Fishin (with Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c) and is hoping Atlantis does not take that same hairpin turn.
Yey! I am excited! I hope it gets lot of viewers!
