You can hear that on MeTV...All for new channels with OTA, but sounds a little like the genre MeTV is already catering too. Than again a lot of shows have been made over the years, so there's enough to pick from...would love to see old reruns of Miami Vice back on the screen!

I'm looking forward to this. Wish we got AntennaTV. You can never have too many classic programs on the dial.

MeTV, AntennaTV, Decades, Escape, Grit, Ion etc. All newish offerings - yippee! But sometimes it feels like limited old material is just being spread out across more channels. Every new channel means that some previous channel's offerings are diluted and back-filled with infomercials. Am I being too cynical? More OTA is always good, can't argue with that. But is adding subchannels just re-arranging the deck chairs?

Yes. Definitely.

For starters, there is a LOT of programming out there. We are just starting to scratch the surface. The big difference between broadcast or cable and OTT is continuous programming. When we had cable, the Food Network and History Channel were our background noise. With broadcast, we tend to leave the set tuned to ION or MeTV. Decades looks like a good all day channel. Of course, not everyone cannot pick up every channel every day. It's nice to be able to find a good strong channel with programming you love. Finally, great subchannels en masse are one area where the premium providers struggle to keep up. More unique subchannels mean more OTA enthusiasts which will lead to more OTA programming. So it's good for 'our business' too!

IIRC, don't subchannels take bandwidth away from the main channel with a result of lower picture quality? I see absolutely no need to have a TV on all day as background noise. If I have the TV on, I'm actually sitting there and watching it. If I'm not watching TV, I'm either working, listening to music (which makes much better background noise, IMHO), reading a book, gone to the gym, sleeping, etc. That said, I have no problem with more content being available, but only if it doesn't affect the quality of the existing content.

Has anyone here picked up the new WYCN-LD virtual 13 RF channel 36? It is located on the same tower as WBIN in Hudson, NH but with twice the power.
