Television aficionados could soon be in for a surprise the next time they take a break from their favorite shows to surf the channels for something that catches their eye.
If German morticians have their way, viewers may come across what is being called a 24-hour death channel.
The channel, which is set to be distributed on satellite TV and on the Internet, is to focus on the general concept of dying. Funeral ceremonies, cemeteries and obituaries will be featured, along with information on old death rituals and eulogies.
The producers say the channel is intended to help people become more familiar with death and therefore make the grieving process easier and more familiar when they actually go through it.
