Like HTN, Spotlight was a channel that was around in the early days of cable. They were a bit more popular than HTN and remained for a few years longer.
Spotlight was an HBO like channel that aired movies 24 hours a day. Their slogan was "Spotlight, shining bright, day and night, we light up the stars for you!"
On my cable system, it went off the cable system around 1984, replaced by Cinemax. At the time, I thought it was just a name change as they were similar. But they were different channels.
Here is a bumper for the channel.
