Re: The media wants you to panic

Turn off all the news. That’s what I did. I’m not falling for their hype. And if you need news, stick to the newspapers -- I've been generally avoiding TV news long before the coronavirus, and radio for as long as I can remember. Glad to see a viable use for newspapers in this current climate.

Sad to see them go, they already managed to make it to my area a decade ago (I've been to their "Sleep Shop" near me).

It was carried in Winnipeg for years in the 80s.
Winnipeg also had WJBK and WXYZ too, and in the mid 90's during the network swapping, WTOL from Toledo also showed up!

Re: Evolution of Cable TV Channels.

Speaking of early cable, I'm reminded I have two playlists filled of classic cable TV ranging from the 70's to the 90's. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA06D472C11903494 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTnbwiCw-mMRDWUfHPSJKZgX2JHxpDU1R https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTnbwiCw-m...

Re: Antenna TV gone?

WMYD-TV 20 Detroit and it's subchannels are only available on Buckeye Broadband on the Michigan side of the border, namely Bedford township. Yep, Bedford Township is practically the furthest Buckeye can offer the Detroit channels these days (and I'm about a half mile from the state line). WTVS can ...

Surprised no one brought up A&E -- back in the day, it was arts and cultural programming. These days, it's mainly crime shows such as "The First 48" and "Live PD".
Yep, I miss what A&E used to mean.

Re: 13.6 and .7

Speaking of "Channel 48" which still shows up as diginets of CH36 RF, they did improve the video greatly on Cozi, but Antenna TV is still not decent at all. I'm afraid that WTVG is going to have too many diginets and then we'll lose the improved video of MeTV, which is so much better from WTVG than...

It looks like WADL replaced Cozi with QVC OTA. The local affiliates make much more money with shopping channels than they do with the regular OTA broadcast networks.
I have yet to see this happen in Toledo (for now), though we did have a low-power HSN station on analog UHF for years.

Re: WNWO last night during SNL.

WNWO is extremely low tech. I still think 48 is the worst technical-wise. 24 is a very close second though. This is not the first time 24's had technical problems recently. It ought to be a small-market station. WNWO in recent days had made the old WDHO look good. True there! Of course this clip is...

Re: Difficult To Watch BBC Programmes In America

So how does the British government know if you are illegally watching OTA broadcasts? How is this enforced? Is there something in the TV that won't let you watch if you're not licensed? You can still use your TV in the UK, but the BBC has a fleet of vans that roam around the UK, detecting who's wat...

Re: Difficult To Watch BBC Programmes In America

To me this TV license thing seems like an unfair tax. I was under the impression that over the air signals were free but yet the Brits are being charged. I would be curious as to how many British households don't have a TV for this very reason. Will TV's just NOT work if you're not licensed? The id...

Re: WNWO last night during SNL.

I sound like a broken record when these issues come up, but I wish the FCC would do away with their "network non-duplication" and "syndex" rules so cable providers like Buckeye Broadband could offer NBC via Detroit's WDIV, in addition to WNWO, so when things like the SNL screw up happen, consumers ...
