TBD TV now airing on 50.4

Post by The Constant Browser » Fri May 17, 2019 7:52 pm

A channel called TBD TV - http://tbd.com - is airing on CH 50.4 Their programing appears to come primarily from YouTube and other online video sources.

That’s been there for a while now. Actually a waste of garbage programming on a good sub-channel, I thought CBS would have put something else on with some sort of quality than that shit on 50.4

50.4 is one of the few channels I catch my teenage son watching, outside of a few primetime shows. Normally he is on the streaming services watching things and doesn't watch much too much broadcast channels.

Which is why broadcast television is on the way out I’m 63 all I do is streaming on radio and television, I’m a firm believer that this whole ATSC 3.0 thing is just like HD Radio it’s Too little, Too late.

You're probably right about ATSC 3.0, but of course streaming is slowly being ruined by everyone wanting to run their own service. I am just pointing out the TBD actually has a niche it is filling on the Subchannel market, and may not be garbage programming. Absolute garbage programming is infomercial and shopping networks.

TBD went live on WKBD 50.4 in December, was discussed here at that time.
While I also think TBD is crap, others have different opinions on the matter.
Plenty of data bandwidth on (soon to be) RF 34 for that and whatever else the corporate geniuses make a a deal to acquire.
Now, a true waste of spectrum IMO is Ch. 19, WUDL-LD. Seven lower than low-def streams of shopping and slimy fake preachers, most of which are duplicated on others’ local subs.

TBD is a Sinclair operation and also carried on their ONO in Toledo (i.e. WNWO-24). Out of all the subchannels I get from both Toledo and Detroit markets, the Sinclair offerings is just unwatchable and not interesting. Sad irony is since they also own ROH Wrestling, I fail to see why Sinclair doesn't launch a wrestling subchannel and call it a day considering PlutoTV has its own dedicated stream of Lucha Libre and TNA ...

We've had that channel now in Flint on WEYI 25.3 for almost 2 years. I have yet to watch anything on it.
