38.8 has a NEW Twist

Post by windsor » Tue Apr 06, 2021 7:09 pm

Looks like Adell Broad. has picked up the new Tegna channel aimed at the female audience called TWIST for metro Detroit.

Looks a though WTOL a Tegna station has taken a pass , unless sister WUPW36 has it over there.

Good info; thanks.

I'm sure this will be a "must carry" for all TEGNA owned stations at some point, unless there are technological limitations.

It appears programming mostly will consist of reruns / off-network series that originally aired on Bravo, E!, and the like.

Ah! Thought I was going to have to rescan to pick this up.

But then I read "The network will feature hit shows such as Dance Moms, Tabatha Takes Over, Flipping Out, Clean House and more at launch. New shows, including Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Top Chef: Masters and Dr. 90210 will be added to the network in the coming months."

I guess no need to rescan!!! :)

It’s going to be a Bravo retread channel. All the shows that were once on Bravo, will resurface in reruns.

Is the signal pure pixelation on an 8th sub-channel?

If that isn't enough digital sloth in the trough, I'd read that they're looking for a way to put DRM audio on HDTV signals, most likely in the version 3.0 ?

They have it. The DRM can require connection to the internet, which means that the TV stations will be pimping out viewer metadata and subscriber data like there is no tomorrow.
