    I am a new subscriber and a roku user. typed in the roku code but every show says pilot not available.

    • Admin says:

      If you are a new User, It’s Important to be logged into pilottv.net in order to activate your Pilot TV Roku Channel. You’ll know you are logged in, when it says a Welcome of some sort, up in the top right corner of your Browser.

    How do I get access to the Platinum content? I have a paid membership, but there is only a single level at $3.99 per month. What’s in there and how is it possible to get access?

    • Admin says:

      Hi theaterdark,

      There’s only 1 Membership level now, the $3.99/ month is all access for all Members except for Guests.

      Thanks, Terry

    PilotTV on Roku keeps cutting out today. It’s not happening with any other Roku channels. What could be wrong?

    • Admin says:

      Hi theaterdark, is it happening with all the content on Pilot TV Roku? or anything specific? I’m currently watching the channel and it’s streaming fast. A quick fix for all Roku users is to unplug your Roku for a few seconds and plug it back in, this clears the Roku’s internal cache and allows its updates to load.

      Thanks, Terry

      • theaterdark says:

        It was only happening with the Pilot TV Roku channel. Wouldn’t work for the rest of the day no matter what I did. Netflix and Hulu seem to be fine, just not Pilot TV. Regardless, it seems fine today.

        Thanks

    I love the concept behind this channel and am thrilled with the content I have seen available so far. However, as several others have pointed out… no where on your site does it clearly describe what you get with each membership level(other than length of time) with the exception of the bronze level to an extent and the platinum level though even that is unclear about what is available on Roku at that level. It does seem a little shady and has been commented about on Roku channel guide websites. I was strongly considering buying a membership of some kind right from the get go, but this lack of info does not engender customer confidence. TRANSPARENCY is key here. For instance: what levels are allowed to have more than one Roku box? (btw if you allow 2 boxes for bronze membership please add a 2nd one to my account as my new stick came in the mail today,Thanks!) I would suggest adding that question to your automated sign up process so you don’t have to go do it after the fact.
    Something else I noticed is that many of the pilots I have seen on here ARE available in higher quality formats readily on the web elsewhere streaming or via things like torrenting. Or in the example of Shazam it’s been available on dvd though I don’t know if the pilot you are showing and the dvd episode is EXACTLY the same as I haven’t watched in a while. I don’t understand the rights process you must face streaming this content so maybe my comment about quality is moot so forgive me me if I am misspeaking. As a rare tv content collector as many of us are, some of your members would probably be willing to help you secure those if you are having problems finding them. I am thrilled to see a company striving to preserve this history.
    I don’t really mean to sound like I am unhappy with the service as even as just an occasional random bronze member I look forward to looking every week just see what you are showing even if I don’t sign up. I like being surprised with the randomness of it. I believe if you add detailed descriptions on the member level sign up page (especially silver and gold), you would make a lot more money. (Nickel and dimes add up quickly.) Even if those are more restrictive in content available than platinum. Simply pushing the platinum level is a huge turn off for those of us cutting the cable cord and prefer to be more incremental with spending on content i.e. some months I can afford a few bucks either via time or money and others I can’t. Simply/only pushing platinum (excuse me if that wasn’t your intention) seems very much like the reason I cut the cord and got a Roku and broadband. Corporate bullying. One thing for sure I am DONE with the cable companies and I believe Roku understands this trend well. From reading through your site I believe you do too.
    Your mission is a prime example of what is possible when art and history is considered above corporate bottom lines and opinions. I understand the importance of bottom lines as without them, we would never see any of this great stuff. That said a lot of us are tired of a board deciding what we want to see, when and how… then extorting more and more for less and less, Please excuse my long windedness. So anyway, please explain the member levels explicitly in your response and be assured I will fire up paypal and send you something as I plan on sticking around for a while. Thank you PilotTV for existing.
    Sincerely.

    • Admin says:

      Thanks for that mikalmos963 your comment is not falling on deaf ears, it it was, I would have ignored it. Our library is increasing and we are accessing Pilots from all sorts of sources and if any Member has better copies of shows, we here at Pilot TV will gladly make it worth your while. As far as the Membership levels, under https://pilottv.net/membership-account/membership-levels/ I’ve tried making the level more clear, but maybe it’s time to shift our Membership to just one price, but keep it much lower than Netflix’s monthly rates. Thanks again, Terry

      • mikalmos963 says:

        Dear Terry,
        Thank you so much for your kind and quick response.
        Just to clarify…Is access to content the same at bronze, silver, and gold levels?(i.e. what is on the schedule for that week?) The only difference being length of membership and pricing discounts? Can those levels of membership have more than one Roku box? The link you provided has NO descriptions on that page. Just length and price of membership. Platinum is clearly described other places on the site i.e, full access to the entire catalog anytime for a year with there being less of the catalog available on Roku platinum at least for the time being? I assume this is due to technical and perhaps rights issues? Please correct me if I am wrong with any of this. I only understood these from reading ALL the comments. Also I just discovered that the descriptions you speak of, while minimal in detail are after you click the buttons. Perhaps having them on the page with the buttons would help. Or a statement that says click the button to find out more.
        Further I think you could keep the level structure and benefits the same if you wanted, but simply just explain these things on the membership page. Again as noted none of these things are on that first page. It is why you have had lots of questions about it. I have also noticed just as you have about the Netflix type subscription suggestions. It isn’t a bad idea especially as your library grows. Perhaps a cross between your current membership structure and a Netflix system?
        Lastly I am glad to see you are open to members helping to provide content and the suggestion of compensation. I am excited about what possibilities this might open up for you and the members.
        BTW I like when there are commercials included from the era that the broadcast pilots aired in. It adds to the experience. I noticed this was mentioned to be the case in some instances. I think most would agree with me there.
        Anyway I am in the process of buying a silver membership at the moment and would appreciate you changing my account settings to include two Roku boxes as I will be putting my 2nd set up online with in the next few days.
        Again thanks and have a great night!
        Greg

        • Admin says:

          Hi mikalmos963, hold off on joining, I believe in 24 hours we’ll have only two Membership tiers, Guests and Members and the Members cost will be $3.99/ Month. I want this confusion with all these levels to stop and want to make you the Members happy and have everything more streamlined. Thanks for your input, Terry

  6. steveb says:

    I am a roku customer I have been trying to enter the 4 digit code and it does not work for me am I doing something wrong? please advise Thank you, Steve

    • Admin says:

      Please add the Pilot TV Roku channel to your new Roku Box, Once you select it, it will give you a code. Please log in to pilottv.net (You’ll know you are logged in because there will be a greeting next to your Username in the top right corner of your Browser) and navigate to pilottv.net/roku and there will be a box for the code that is showing on the Pilot TV Roku channel, please add this code in and click return. You then need to let me know that you’ve added it so I can make sure it doesn’t expire on you every week.

  7. I have pilot tv on my roku however when I try to register an account with pilot tv which is nessasary to link roku with the pilot tv website, it keeps telling me that my email address is invalid, it is not. I would like to order platinum. What do I do. My PayPal account is in order. Please help. Sincerely Arthur McBride

    • Admin says:

      Hi Arthur,

      Everything about your account seems to be in good working order. How were you able to finally make it work?

      Thanks, Terry

      • Arthur says:

        Terry, thank you for the prompt response, that’s the type of quick access and communication that I like, it”s proper business and shows me that you hold value in your companies mission statement. First it was the registration process, it would not allow me to do so, it continually stated that my e-mail address was invalid so after a dozen attempts I gave up and put my laptop aside then went back to my roku .
        First I removed the channel and added it back to allow it to reload then I went back to my laptop and tried to register again and like some ghost in the machine I found to my amazement that my registration process had gone through, don”t ask me how this happened I am not a teckie. When I was in college a typewriter was the best technology one could have. From there I just followed the instructions.
        I do have a few questions. First, when I try to access ,”support” why do I get a blank page with the words, ” you do not have the proper membership level to access this page ” I am a platinum member ,that is the highest membership level one can have. Are you still in development or does one have to own the company to access ,”support ” ?
        Finally, I must say that I do enjoy your programing very much ,however for a platinum member I felt that the number of pilots was very limited. I believe that I read somewhere that, pilot tv had thousands of pilots but if I were to count what was available to me once I had it up and running my best guess would place that number at around one hundred. Maybe I still have a glitch in my equipment and I”m not truly at the platinum level or another guess is that you change them out at regular intervals, like I said I am not a teckie so please be patient with me. Hopefully you can add some clarity to my confusion.
        Sincerely
        Arthur

        • Admin says:

          Thanks Arthur,

          You are a brilliant Pilot TV Member. You were correct regarding the Pilot TV Support page. It was set-up so that a Member needed to be logged in to access it. I’ve changed it so it’s now full access. Also we currently have close to 600 Pilots and the library is growing. The website is more current then our Pilot TV Roku channel, but we are working hard to extend our Library and allow our Members much more entertainment. Everyone should know that some of the Pilots are poor quality, we are working to get better copies. Stay tuned because we will also be getting our Channel on Apple TV. Thanks for the interaction Arthur keep all the Comments coming.

    I signed up for the one week trial and I cannot access the platinum section to see what is there?

    • Admin says:

      Hi Connie,

      The Platinum portion of the site is for Full Access Members only. As a free Member you have access to what we are presenting on our weekly TV guide, found here https://pilottv.net/extras/pilot-tv-guide/ Currently we have over 600 Pilots that only a Platinum Member has full access to. We are currently adding Pilots everyday and some exciting things are starting to come together for us. Please stay tuned and thanks for joining.

      • brendastocktonhiss says:

        As a Bronze member testing the waters to see if I want to support the site with actual money, I am disappointed in the selection offered to me. It is not as tempting as the admin of this site may suppose. Perhaps additional access could be added without usurping the privileges of paid members by adding a limited number of pilots from the elite packages. Maybe that’s what the gold level offers. There doesn’t seem to be a definition of that level nor have I seen an icon for the gold level, like the one for platinum.

        • Admin says:

          Thanks brendastocktonhiss please go under Listings for current shows, but there are also exclusives under Exclusives and we will soon be adding Pilot TV Originals, stay tuned and thanks for your Comment.

  9. pocketrebel says:

    Holy Moly, that “Tate” show is dark. It’s like the film noir of westerns. They did a good job of casting the relatives of James Coburn’s characters. Totally bought them as brothers, etc. There really needs to be a real forum for this site/channel. Can one be added for actual discussions and not just comments?

  10. Ralph C. says:

    With a platinum subscription, will a person have access to all the shows and be able to watch them whenever they want to on their computer or tablet (and hopefully soon through a Roku)? I am very interested in joining, as I have always wanted a place to watch old tv pilots. Thanks for any and all info.

  11. mb3417 says:

    What ia wrong with the screen? The title do not match the descriptions

    • Admin says:

      Hi mb3417,

      Can you please give me a title that’s not matching. I’ll investigate it.

      Thanks, Terry

      • redbeard36 says:

        You’ve titled Brenner as Charlie Paradise.

        • Admin says:

          Hi Redbeard36, you are correct that Charlie Paradise is from the Brenner series. Charlie Paradise, starring Ron Randell first aired July 19th, 1964. It was supposed to become a spinoff series of Brenner. There are 1000’s of examples of spinoffs. Andy Griffith had a few. Gomer Pyle USMC was episode 32, season 4 of The Andy Griffith Show that aired on May 18th, 1964 and Mayberry RFD was episode 30 of season 8. The Brenner Pilot is also on the site.

          Thanks, Terry

    Holy moley! Big John, Little John! I never thought I’d see that one again. Loved it when I was a kid.

  13. cmcote14 says:

    Heck I paid 24 bucks and can’t even figure out how to get on it ! Said my subscription ran out how I paid for a year ? Still can’t get on the channel …..

    • Admin says:

      I checked your status, you are good, you are definitely a Platinum member. Now here are the steps that should get you to everywhere you need to be on pilottv.

      1. Log in to pilottv.net (sign in with your username and password. If you can’t log in, let me know and I’ll change your password)
      2. After you are logged in, please go to pilottv.net/roku (On this page, you will see the Roku activation code box and below that you will see the password for
      platinum members for the platinum member folder on Pilot TV Roku Channel)
      3. Go to Pilot TV Roku Channel. If you get the 4 digit code that pops up, it means you have to activate the channel with the site. You can type in this code on the pilottv.net/roku page but it’s very important that you are logged in to pilottv.net on the site to see this. Once the code is in, you will see a congratulations on your Pilot TV Roku channel.
      4. After you are now logged in everywhere, you will select the Platinum members folder on Pilot TV Roku channel and will enter the password that is displayed on pilottv.net/roku. Once again, you will only see this password if you are logged in to pilottv.net

      If none of this works please call

      It sounds like a lot of stuff, but it’s not. The key to everything is being logged in to pilottv.net to get the ball rolling.

      Thanks for being a member, Terry

      • cmcote14 says:

        Thanks ! I’ve been trying to figure this out forever,…. Thanks again love the channel !

        • Admin says:

          Awesome, if you get a chance please check out Gomer Pyle USMC, it’s very funny. As we go along here building our library we will also try to fix the video and audio quality of some of the shows. A lot we might be stuck with the way they are, because there aren’t any other copies.

          Thanks for being a member, Terry

      • xxxangelsfan says:

        Your company makes it a chore to watch the channel once you’ve paid for it. your assuming your customers all have a computer handy and want to go thru this every 7 days. once we paid it should be available, period! I’ve had problems twice now in less than a month. Other roku channels that I’ve paid for always have my movies ready for me. Fix your programming with Roku. Roku has a lot of complaints with you from their subscribers.

        • Admin says:

          Thanks for the comment xxxangelsfan, We here at Pilot TV agree with you. All paid members no longer will expire until their membership does.

          Thanks for being members, Terry

  14. bobcnn says:

    I enjoy the channel, I have two other Roku boxes that I would like to be able to reveive Pilot TV on. Also when I try to watch The Courthship of Eddie’s Father, I just get a quick video with the three guys from Pilot TV saying hi.

    • Admin says:

      Bob you are wonderful for bringing that to our attention. Those 3 guys are us, the board of directors. You now are set up with your other 2 Roku boxes. We are adding lots of content daily so please stay tuned.

      Thanks for being a member, Terry

      • bobcnn says:

        One of my Roku still can not receive PilotTV. It is the one ending in 274. If you need the complete number just email me.

        Thanks!!!!

        Bob

        • Admin says:

          Hi Bob,

          I checked your settings, you have 3 Roku boxes to your username. I’ll send a note off to Roku to see what they think might be going on. But for sure you are set for 3 boxes.

          Thanks, Terry

  15. magicpilot says:

    Thanks Terry! Wow! You did a lot in a few hours on Roku! Keep up the great work! AAA+++

  16. magicpilot says:

    Hi Terry! Can you add another Roku to my account? It is near 100 degrees in my area of NY State and I have moved to the original man cave. I can’t wait until I can view all the shows on Roku. I don’t sit well in front of a computer. I watched six shows yesterday. Some are grainy due to age, but it was neat to see Adventures in Babysitting, Superman, the Phantom, Shazam and Batgirl all in one day! Keep up the good work1 I will keep the Platinum membership. I may make it a Father’s Day request for next year!

  17. magicpilot says:

    1 – Paid my $24.99 … finally got it to work on roku … but the same seven pilots all week ???
    2 – Went to the website … clicked on members adventure unpaid (whatever that means) … clicked on the adventurer (danova) … it just spins and spins and spins …

    Don’t you think that before something is launched, it should be thoroughly tested? Why should we subscribers be the paid guinea pigs?

    Maybe, since it is 5:50 AM Pacific Time, no one is awake to set this up.

    But I am unhappy. Hope this improves by this time tomorrow.

    • Admin says:

      Hi, pilottv.net is an internet based company that currently has a Roku channel. We are in the midst of allowing all access to our Platinum members on the Pilot TV Roku channel, but with our large library we will need more time.

  18. pocketrebel says:

    Wow. So this is the description of vacation playhouse. I had no idea they did this:

    Vacation Playhouse was a series made up of a collection of unsold television pilots that didn’t make the CBS lineup. To recoup the expense of making these shows, networks would package them into a summer replacement series, and sometimes a regular series, just to sell advertising during the show. After watching most of these pilots, the public understood why they were never picked up. But these types of programs were quite popular in the 1960s.

  19. pocketrebel says:

    Hey there. Very confused about something. Last week, there was a Dean Jones show. A character named Bev Ferguson was in the show. She was quite stunning. Some google searches give credit to Ann Jillian for playing this role. If the show aired in 1965, that would have made her 15. I just don’t see this as possible. Is there an explanation? A search of old pics of Ann Jillian didn’t turn up anything that looked like this woman.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Pocketrebel, I’ve been doing some research in to this and now it’s bugging me too. Diane McBain is the only actress I can get information for on this Pilot. How were you able to track the Actress as Ann Jillian? I’ll dig in to this more. If any other Pilot TV Member knows this answer please help.

      Thanks for being a Member, Terry

  20. Harry S says:

    Hello,

    Just signed up for the platinum based on your comments above that all content will be available on the Roku to platinum members and that I can register multiple Rokus. We currently have three and will be changing out to Roku 3s soon as well. I registered the first Roku and will register the second tonight. Is there anything I need to know before I register the second or will it just work? Also can you tell me when all of the content will be on Roku for platinum members?

    I have worked in the entertaiment industry for over 30 years and love to see this type of content finally available. Can’t tell you how many pilots I worked on that never made it to air as well. Some of which were excellent.

    All the Best

    • Admin says:

      Hi Harry,

      Thanks for being a member. I just set your account to have 3 Rokus. As far as getting all our current content on to Roku for Platinum members, we need more time. The trick is the current configuration is running very nicely, so we have to think of how to make it work for different membership levels. Please be patient and great things will happen.

      Thanks, Terry

    Hi, I have your channel set up on my Roku player but I am not subscribed. I am going to wait till you make your upgrade and make all the content available on Roku to your Platinum customers. Will there be something on the Roku channel to notify me of the upgrade? Or how do I find out?

    • Admin says:

      Hi tampammm,

      You are already a member whether a paid member or not. When we make all content available on Roku you will be notified by email. But I really would suggest you consider accessing whatever you want to watch on pilottv.net website. I’m able to mirror everything on my computer onto my TV and I’ve heard that Roku will be making this available as well.

  23. mnfowler says:

    Just watched “The Barbary Coast” pilot episode of “Barbary Coast.” (Yes, that is confusing but correct.) Unfortunately, your description of the program is mixed up. You have confused this 1975 (Color) pilot episode with the title of a 1957 (Black & White) second season episode of “Tales of Wells Fargo.” Dale Robertson, 1957. William Shatner, 1975. I also think the censors would have torn their hair out in 1957 with all the sexual inuendos in this 1975 show. Anyway, at least you show the program that is actually a pilot, even if you gave the description of a program that is not. Also, for your ocean theme of the week, I don’t know which episode would be more appropriate. The one you show features sailors and others falling into the San Francisco Bay. That’s about it. Can’t speak to the “Tales of Wells Fargo” episode’s sea-worthiness, though, again, that isn’t a pilot.

    • Admin says:

      Hi mnfowler, thanks so much for bringing that to our attention. If you or any member would like to share descriptions of all our Pilots that we have so far, please feel free to and we’ll add them.

    Hi, nice idea! But i only intend to watch this channel via Roku, and don’t feel there is enough available content to justify the cost. My recommendation would be to make the monthly cost 0.99 cents for Roku users, or also give an option to pay a one-time lifetime cost. Thanks.

    If I pay for a subscription can I use 2 ROKU’s with my account? Ifr not, why not? We have ROKU’s on our 2 main TV’s in our house and want to be able to watch from both TV’s.

    I just joined yesterday (trial membership) and I’ve watched 2 shows, I Love Lucy and Leave it to Beaver. Both of these pilots were supposedly NBS, but I have seen them both before somewhere else. What’s up with that???

    • Admin says:

      Leave it to Beaver after this Pilot episode, changed two of their characters, Hugh Beaumont and Tony Dow were added. This is a show that some of you may have seen, but the majority hasn’t. The I love Lucy Pilot was lost until 1990, the same goes with it too. Keep watching, you will be surprised of the number of shows you’ve never seen before.

  29. Claude Stepp says:

    I have tried your free 1 week preview ,and 3 show is all that I have seen
    could you tell me what would I get on my roku if I subcribed to the
    platium cann not understand the difference if it would be worth the money

    • Admin says:

      Hi Claude,

      Great question, basically pilottv.net is a web based company. You are currently a pilottv.net member so if you go on your computer and navigate to the members menu, under that is about 28 categories of content. As a platinum member you will have access to all the shows we have on our site. Now also because we only launched on March 1st, we are currently only in phase 1 of a multi-phase business plan. The goal at pilottv.net is to have every pilot ever made up on the site. We will also get all future pilots up on the site and have the members, such as yourself vote and select the better shows so that we can provide feedback to the producers and hopefully have their shows picked up by the Network. Next we are going to have our own shows that we produce up on the site and turn these shows in to pilottv original series. If you go to https://pilottv.net/extras/pilot-tv-shorts/ you will see a show that we are creating right now.

      Now as far as Pilot TV Roku channel, here was our dilemma, offer it to subscribers the way Netflix or Hulu runs their site or offer it to people for a week no charge so they can see some shows. If we offered all our content and offered a one week free membership, what we are afraid of is a free member could spend hours and days watching a lot of our content and than elect not to join. I felt coming out of the gate the way it currently is running is a good intro in to our company. As we grow and expand than I promise you there will be many many shows available on Roku.

      Sorry for the long answer and I hope you become a platinum member. I need members like you, that can contribute,

      Thanks, Terry

    If I become a month-to-month Roku subscriber and miss one of your daily offerings, can I catch it on your website later or do I have to wait and hope that it comes onto the schedule again?

    • Admin says:

      That’s a great question, thanks for asking that. If you get a chance post that as a comment and I’ll give you this same response, but other members can read it. The best way to see everything we have on the site is to be a platinum member, now the only problem with doing that is you won’t see all the content on the pilottv roku channel. For watching on the pilottv roku channel you will have to wait for it to come around again. Here at pilottv we currently like the current format. We are in such a fast paced life that it’s nice to get back to the grass roots of a schedule and as we grow as a company, it’s going to allow us to know which shows are liked the most so that we can make sure a new series is created from that pilot.

      Thanks for joining,

        oh uh just what do you get on the month to month it sounds like the free plan???

        chekoff

        • Admin says:

          The free plan is really just for a new user and only lasts for 1 week. The Silver Plan is for a month. $1.99/month for entertaining shows is way cheaper than a latte at Starbucks.

  31. chekoff says:

    ok i am trying to find how to upgrade my membership but your site sends me in circles please have a link where to upgrade AND please explain more clearer on what you get with each class..

    Chekoff

    • chekoff says:

      also the sound on Bewitched is very low i have my volume full blast and can barely hear can you please fix this..

      thank you

      chekoff

      • Admin says:

        Hi Chekoff, I’ll fix the sound asap. I’m not sure what happened there, but it will get resolved.

        Thanks for Joining

    • Admin says:

      Hi Chekoff, Linda had the same issue yesterday. If you go up under the top right of your menu it’ll say Welcome or Howdy and your user name. Hover over that and select Edit My Profile. Once you are in there, it should give you the option down near the bottom of your profile to select a different plan. Try that. If you don’t have luck, please email me your user name to terry@pilottv.net and I’ll delete it and you can create a new user name.

      Thanks Terry

    I have a Roku. I installed pilottv channel. When I go to play a pilot, it asks me to goto https://www.pilottv.net/roku and enter code ????. When I goto that page, there is nowhere to Enter the Code. Please help.

    • Admin says:

      If you go to pilottv.net you’ll have to subscribe. Once you do that and are signed in, go to pilottv.net/roku from there you’ll see the code box. You only see the Code box when you are logged in to pilottv.net I had to do it like this to prevent people accessing the site and it’s content without being a member.

      Thanks for joining.

      Terry

      • rush2112 says:

        I am also having the same problem. I’ve tried NUMEROUS times going to pilottv.net/roku even after subscribing to the monthly plan and have not seen a Code box. HELP PLEASE

        • Admin says:

          Hi, You must be logged into pilottv.net. Once logged in please go to pilottv.net/roku. The activation code will appear. We have it hidden so that the general public can’t just use pilottv roku channel without becoming a member first.

          Thanks, Terry

    For the one’s who grew up with these show this is great!!!!! But what would make it better is to have the full shows!!!!!!!! Then a lot of us would paid to have this station. You could make it like Hulu, Netflix… bill every mo. 7.99……. But with just pilots I cant see paying for just that. I’m sure you”ll do well with the younger group just with pilots.
    Good luck!!!! and nice work!!!!. Let me know when you get full shows like (My tv)(its free). I’ll sign up with you guys and pay each mo.

    • Admin says:

      Are you referring to episodes? The concept behind Pilot TV is we want to be a testing ground for New Shows. When shows are produced Networks usually turn them down and this content sits on a shelf. I want our subscribers to decide what we watch on TV. I want to be a testing ground or a pitch channel for Netflix and Hulu etc….

      If I start broadcasting series we’ll be like Netflix. Now on the other hand Originally produced Pilot TV Series will be available on this site, but I need the membership base to grow first before we can do that.

      Thanks for joining,

      Terry

      • Big_Daddy_Randy says:

        I like what you are trying to accomplish with PILOT TV. I love the old pilot programs that you have available for the members to view. I am on my second program and have only been a member for the last hour. I hope that you are able to air some of the pilot’s that never were shown on television at all , and not only the ones that became hit shows or just played part or all of a season. Do you think you can air movies that were completed but not released to the public to watch. I look forward in watching the growth of PILOT TV as your dream becomes part of TV programing history.

        • Admin says:

          Hi Randy, thanks for becoming a member. I came up with the concept of Pilot TV back in 1989. I’ve worked in the Movie/TV business for the past 34 years. Every year I work on loads of Pilots that don’t get picked up. Technology now allows us to do this. We are excited to have a multi-phase business plan. We launched on March 1, 2013 and we are only in Phase 1. Currently more than half the Pilots we have, have Never Before Seen (NBS*) Some are amazing, like Tom Selleck and Bob Urich, in Bunco. Others not so great, but still entertaining to watch. It just happened that we went Public on Roku during our sweeps week. Stay Tuned!!!

  34. parkerren says:

    So what exactly am I supposed to be able to get with a trial membership? When I try to access some areas it says I do not have the right membership. The trial membership to tell me what I get in in the maximum membership. It does not seem like I get a lot of the Roku I feel be the best way for me to see the content. My only other mother would probably be the phone.

    • Admin says:

      The site does stream on a smart phone. Computer is the best access , but if your don’t have one available I would suggest the $1.99/ Month. You will see 9 shows a week in that time. Basically 2 shows play for the week and than every night a new show gets posted. For example tonight Partridge Family will End and Bewitched comes on.

      Thanks for joining, Terry

  35. cah45278 says:

    Do you folks update around here?

    • Admin says:

      We change our content every night at midnight pacific time. To really navigate through the site and see everything we have to offer a higher paid membership is the best. But even as a Silver member you will constantly watch some great shows.

      • pquin7 says:

        What do you get as silver member? your site does not really say much about the paid subscription. and i thought the free one week trial would give you all access..all i get is three shows nothing more in the roku channel, and in your site i log in and try the members it says :Sorry! You have don’t have the appropriate membership to access this content. I don’t get it I thought one week trial was to see what you get if you pay?

        • Admin says:

          Hi,

          Thanks for the email. We will try to be clearer on what you get as a subscriber. But we change the content everyday. But if you go to https://pilottv.net/extras/pilot-tv-guide/ you will see the schedule of shows that we run. If you pay more than you can bypass the daily schedule and go right to all the content. We have to charge for the subscriptions because of the cost to us to have this content available to you.

          Thanks for joining.

          Terry

  36. ikoiko says:

    I don’t see anything that tells me what I get with a paid subscription.

    • Admin says:

      As you navigate through the site, you will see we have hundreds of Pilots that became classic series and others that never got picked up.

      • laur44853 says:

        why on roku is everything the same with the highest membership for $24 as it for the trial membership why is this? I thought I would be able to watch more on my roku with the $24 membership

        • Admin says:

          Hi laur44853 we are working on Platinum members having all access to all the content on Pilot TV Roku Channel, currently you have all access on the site, pilottv.net

          Thanks, Terry

  37. Terry says:

    Looking forward to seeing you all at Killer Shrimp

  38. Mike says:

    This is an incredible concept. Pure genius.

  39. Phil says:

    Hey,
    I’ve worked on a lot of new ideas, but nothing has excited me more than being involved with Pilot TV. I honestly believe it’s going to change the way the world sees the history and the future of Television.

  40. Brian says:

    What a brilliant idea…giving pilots a second chance!

  41. Bill Schwartz says:

    What a ‘kool’ website. Would love to see some old pilots like Superman and the Lone Ranger.

  42. terry says:

    love the site

  43. Katy Lee says:

    Wow! This is really coming along! I’m super excited to see this get rolling!
