WMUN-CD45 used to translate WLNY-TV55/47/c10, but that ended in 2012. I get WMUN, not WLNY. It's informercials now.

WZME-TV43/42 seems to air informercials more than MeTV, leading to KVNV-TV(KJLP-TV)3.


WNYJ-TV66/29 is English News from China, France 24, and WFME. They used to have educational content from Philly but that was dropped, it seems.

32, 35, 43? Top that, 24-2, 24-3, 66-1 (during daytime)

42-4, 45-1, 31-4, 31-5, 31-6, 60-1, and 32-4 are infomercials or shopping.

and 17-1, 17-3 (no 2 there for some reason), 42-2, 54-1, 54-2, 54-3, 54-5, 63-3, 46-2, 51-3 and 48-4 are all religious channels.

Well, in my location in SW Nassau, I can pick up the following Sub-channels of interest with my OTA Rig:

4-2 cozi-TV
5-2 movies!
9-3 Bounce
11-2 AntennaTV
11-3 ThisTV
42-1 MeTV
42-2 the Works
68-3 getTV

The New York Market should be getting Grit and Escape soon...

Outside of RetroTV, what else is missing from NY?


Cheers!
-Doug

NW corner of Nassau, though at the moment I only have an indoor antenna. It should be noted, though, that this is not my ideal setup; I have it set this way (eastward) to get WLIW, which is fringe for me:

(in virtual order)

WCBS 2
WNBC 4
WNYW 5
WABC 7
WWOR 9
WPIX 11
WNET 13
WEBR 17
WLIW 21
WASA 24
WNYE 25
WPXN 31
WPXO 34
WXTV 41
WMUN 45
(sometimes) WMBQ 46
WNJU 47
WNJN 50
WBQM 51
W41DO 60
(sometimes) WMBC 63
WFUT 68

What's your lineup, Doug?

(surprisingly I don't get W26DC or W19EH, less than 5 miles away)

We miss on MHz Worldview (formerly 66-4, IIRC), Deutsche Welle TV, MiND, and Classic Arts Showcase (formerly 45-1), PBJ, and the family channel.

My rig is aimed at ESB. When the gods allow, I have gotten WLNY from Riverhead, and KYW, and WTXF from Philly.

NYC has the biggest chinese population in the USA so I would think that the 800,000 chinese in the area may think those 3 channels were used correctly. What you consider real programming, others may consider garbage. The owners of the stations will program with what makes them money. In case you never left NYC or your parents basement, the demographics of Philadelphia are quite different than here.

I think the point was that those three channels simulcast the same programming.

Indeed. Want CCTV News and SinoVision? Fine! But it makes no sense to have them being on 6 transmitters in one market.

The owners of those stations must have some reason for having all those transmitters. Do the coverage areas overlap, or are they serving different areas? Not everybody has cable, and, believe it or not, there are even people who do not have and do not want to have a smartphone.

I always wonder about the people who shell out a hundred dollars or more each month for cell phone service. Are those people saving any money at all for a rainy day?

They all transmit from the same building with roughly the same antenna pattern.

I'm confident that METV will be on will wjpl by September 7. Can't wait to watch man from U.N.C.L.E. also mission impossible. I can get wzme ota but that station never shows night gallery and other shows. Darn infomercials. Wjpl signal strength should come in strong like wabc is a full power station.

Does anyone here get/watch WVVH-CD? I was channel surfing past their channel to come upon one of the most poorly produced station IDs I've seen:

Well, Me-TV released its new fall schedule today. Is the transplanted KVNV on the air promoting it yet? Time's-a-wastin'. Better fire up that RF3 blowtorch and then tell the cable and satellite systems to hand over the coveted Channel 3 slot!

A federal court ordered the FCC to permit the license to be moved to New Jersey, so I don't think the FCC can delay too long in resolving the dispute over the virtual channel number.

Metv fall lineup leaves alot to be desired, they put on adam12 so often they might as well call themselves fusstv. Cheers again, they are so many other great sitcoms from 70s
Would love to seen CPO Charley, what's happening, one day atta time, to name a few. I don't plan watching they're lineup. Wish retrotv was still around.

I read that the reason that they're showing so many episodes of Adam-12 and Dragnet is that those shows will be moving to another network (maybe Cozi) next year, so Me-TV is putting those shows into heavier rotation while it still has the rights.

I'm interested to see how I like "The Man from U.N.C.L.E". I've never seen that show.

I certainly won't be watching anything on 'Grit' until they get their act together on picture stretch/squeeze. Everything I've seen so far is 4:3 material stretched to 16:9. Who's in charge? There's no excuse for this.

Sony's 'Get' and Fox's 'Movies' are able to get it right all the time, and look pretty good for sub-channels. It's not all that difficult.
