Celestial TV

There are a lot of false positives for this; there’s a brand of TV set called “Celestial” and various film companies with the name too.

However there are enough hits like

This version is the complete uncut feature, recorded to VHS video when it was first broadcast on Celestial TV.

Bring back the races to celestial TV!

haven’t seen it yet in the U.k but am so disappointed it is ending and can’t understand why? we don’t see many good dramas on celestial t.v

to see that it is an interesting reshaping of “terrestrial” and almost makes more sense.

Re: Celestial TV

What is terrestrial TV? In opposition to satellite, maybe? If so it’s another contradictory hit. Oh, wait, you think they have misunderstood terrestrial to mean celestial, i.e., satellite. Got ya.
