I am in the DC area too and noticed RTV was gone yesterday from my Comcast lineup. We get two junk infomercial channels instead. I checked RTV's website and it says:
We are sad that WJLA has decided not to continue its affiliation with RTV. If you would like to contact WJLA:

Voice: 703-236-9552
G&A Fax: 703-236-2345

Or call any other local TV station in the Washington, DC area and tell them that you want RTV! We thank you for your support.

I am certainly going to contact WJLA to complain. RTV was a staple in my viewing line-up.

MeTV and Antenna TV have good retro programming if they are available on DC or Baltimore channels.

cool.gif Hello and thanks for your post. I will call channel 7, ask them what person(s) made this decision -at the beginning of a very hot summer -and inform them that now most of my ABC viewing (90%) is over : reason is that a lot of reality tv is found on abc and I prefer a well written story line that gives a mood (often in Film Noir black/white motif) that makes me think,and is the gist of Retro TV.

Even putting up with the multitude of repeating senior commericals was okay because of the quality of the (mostly) classy programs.
