This fall the company, GasStation TV, plans to
expand the program to a total of 100 gas stations in Dallas,

programming (about the length of time it takes to fill up with gas)

consumer-oriented clips from ABC�s Good Morning America. All
programming will be distributed to the screens electronically
through secure feeds over the Internet.
