From a getTV press release:
“Our ‘Saturday Showdown’ block is very popular with our viewers, and these three new additions are the perfect complement to our growing lineup of rare Western television series,” said Jeff Meier, SVP of Programming at getTV. “We’re excited to dig into Hollywood’s archives and uncover movies and series that sometimes haven’t been seen on TV in decades – transporting our viewers back to a time when Westerns ruled the airwaves.”
