BTW, I forgot to mention that LiveWell Network will continue to provide programming until Jan 17. However I am not sure when channel 9 will remove the channel. As of this moment 12:29am 1/1/15 Live Well is still alive on 9.3

I read on another board that Scripps will be replacing LiveWell Network with Antenna TV here in Cincinnati. Last I looked on Grit TV's website they list 19.3 WXIX as an affiliate. Strange they haven't added it yet.

To be fair they do list it as "Coming soon." What's a bit more odd is that the Grit TV website doesn't list WKEF in Dayton as being an affiliate even though they are.

I really do hope Live Well gets replaced with Antenna TV. That would be a great swap.

Potential Sinclair subchannel shuffle in Cincinnati:
WKRC: 12.1 CBS (1080i HD), 12.2 CW (720p HD), 12.3 GetTV (480i SD)
WSTR (spun off): 64.1 ????
Sinclair could buy WBQC-LD or WOTH-LD and move MNT there.

I dont think ch. 12 has anymore bandwidth. they are running 2 hd channels (ch. 12-1 at 1080 and ch. 12-2 at 720) any more channels will definately have cbs mad because it will effect the picture quality especialy for sports programming.

The posts I made here and on other threads are just pure speculation on just what might happen in these markets, with the FCC's crackdown on JSAs/SSAs and the impending incentive auction. Some of you may have been offended, and for that I apologize.

tried watching 22-2 and 22-3 tonight. not too impressed with get tv 0r grit tv (awful). there has to be better programming out there and not to waste precious ota channels. I hope we dont get grit tv here in cincinnati and they put something else on like antenna tv, (ION life 63_3, or qubo 63.2 (uhf 27) which I watch from bloomington indiana) during tripo nights. much more impressed with antenna tv 59-2 (uhf 45) when it comes in from indianapolis.

I agree, WSTR is actually owned by Deerfield not Sinclair. In Dayton WRGT 45 is owned by Cunningham. I don't see the FCC making Sinclair stop programming either station. Especially since the Republicans control Congress.

thanks. here's my wish : the unaccurate weather channel 9_2 will be re-programmed like scripps owned wrtv abc 6_2 in indianapolis (24 hr. hometown news and sports network "htsn" - similar to ch.9's 4pm newscast) with more local news and weather updates and 9_3 will be antenna tv. its very stange that me tv 5_2 is thanking viewers for being the number one classic tv channel. could they be worried about the competition?

There are quite a few digital sub channels that are missing in Cincinnati that are seen in other markets. I don't think they will let 9.3 go blank on the 19th though. I do like your idea for 9.2. What they have now looks dated with the news crawl and all.

I agree that Antenna Tv would be a great addition as a sub in Cincy or Dayton. Get Tv and Grit are not all that good. I'd take another weather sub over Grit or Get Tv lol

Saw today where Live Well Network is going to continue for another month or two. Saw this on several sites including a post on their facebook page. I was anticipating something new on 9.3 this week. Guess we'll have to wait a little longer

So much for Antenna TV coming to 9.3. LAFF TV Launches April 15th


http://www.broadcastingcable.com/new...scripps/137199

Exclusive: Comedy Multicast Net Launching on ABC, Scripps

The TV stations owned by ABC and E.W. Scripps Co. plan to carry a new multicast comedy network being launched by Katz Broadcasting on April 15.
The new multicast network, called LAFF, already claims coverage of 35% of the country.
The ABC stations plan to continue to air the Live Well multicast network. ABC said it would stop producing new episodes of Live Well programming and will no longer syndicate the network to other station groups, such as Scripps.
ABC said that until LAFF launches in April, its stations will carry Live Well on both its D2 and D3 digital signals. When LAFF launches, it will air on the stations D3 channel. Live Well will remain on the D2 channels.
LAFF is aimed at adults 18-49, with a linear network carried by broadcast stations and cable systems, plus digital content at LAFF.com and a LAFF app.
Katz Broadcasting previously has launched several multicast networks. It has Grit, aimed at men, and Escape aimed at women. Its CEO, Jonathan Katz, is also COO of Bounce TV, the broadcast network aimed at African-American viewers.
Like streaming, multicast TV appears to be growing at a time when pay TV subscriptions are declining. Homes with broadband but no cable are up, as are broadcast only homes.
“In launching three television networks within ten months, we are clearly very bullish on the renaissance of free broadcast television,” Katz said in a statement. “This burgeoning new broadcast ecosystem resembles the early days of basic cable, expanding to offer viewers diverse new choices and complementing the growing number of over-the-top subscription services.”
While a lot of older sitcoms air on classic TV multicast networks LAFF intends to have more contemporary content, the company said.
"LAFF will be an excellent addition to our subchannel lineup," Rebecca Campbell, president of the ABC Owned Television Station Group, said. "We are also committed to keeping Live Well Network up and running in our own markets, so that we can continue to provide unique local programming and pursue corporate synergy opportunities."
The ABC Owned Television Stations will carry LAFF in New York (WABC-TV), Los Angeles (KABC-TV), Chicago (WLS-TV), Philadelphia (WPVI-TV), San Francisco (KGO-TV), Houston (KTRK-TV), Raleigh (WTVD-TV) and Fresno (KFSN-TV).
E.W. Scripps Co. will launch LAFF on its stations in Detroit (WXYZ-TV), Phoenix (KNXV-TV), Tampa (WFTS-TV), Denver (KMGH-TV), Cleveland (WEWS-TV), Indianapolis (WRTV-TV), Baltimore (WMAR-TV), San Diego (KGTV-TV), Kansas City (KSHB-TV), Cincinnati (WCPO-TV), West Palm Beach (WPTV-TV), Buffalo (WKBW-TV) and Tulsa (KJRH-TV).
“The ABC Owned Television Stations and E.W. Scripps Company stations are among the strongest players in their DMAs, which include the biggest markets in the country. We are thrilled and proud to have these two preeminent groups as our charter distribution partners for LAFF,” added Katz Broadcasting chief distribution officer Jeffrey Wolf. “We look forward to welcoming more station groups to the LAFF family.”
ABC launched Live Well six years ago, featuring original programs about cooking, shelter and fitness. ABC previously said it would go dark this month on affiliate stations, but that it planned to continue to air the shows on its owned stations, with no new episodes being produced.
In its heyday, Live Well aired about a dozen half-hours of original programming daily and was carried in 64% of the country. But classic TV series on multicast networks like Me-TV turned out to be tough competition.
Gannett, which had carried Live Well previously agreed to carry the Justice Network, a new service from Lonnie Cooper, another founder of Bounce TV. Justice Network is run by three senior TV execs, former Nat Geo exec Steve Schiffman, former Discovery exec John Ford, and former NBCUniversal exec Barry Wallach.

I wonder how long 9.2 will continue to be a weather channel. There are so many places you can easily get weather info now. I've seen the Escape Tv channel and it would be a great sub for Cincy or Dayton. Antenna Tv will be something I'll keep hoping for too.

I like seeing a weather channel with current radar. When the internet goes down it is the easiest way to see what the weather is doing at that point in time.

What is Escape TV? Antenna TV is almost as good as ME TV. If you purchase Rabbit TV for $10 a year you can watch Antenna TV on your computer. Feed is essentially as good as it is in HDTV.

You be the judge.

For the most part I like Antenna TV's lineup of shows more than MeTV, but MeTV has an almost unbeatable Saturday night lineup IMO.

I want "My Antenna TV" and that suggestion sounds like something to look into. Thanks!

Escape Tv has crime drama movies from the 70's- thru 90's. Forensic Files etc....It's quite a bit like Investigation Discovery on cable etc...
Maybe it's geared towards women but nothing girly about it from what I've seen. Me Tv is Ok but when you compare the line up that Antenna Tv has, it looks better to me.
Nothing like variety on the sub channels.
