My Channel Master off-air tuner/DVR automatically found this channel on August 11th and added it to the tuner's channel line-up. I'm in East Windsor with an indoor antenna that is next to a west-facing window on the second floor, but the antenna is facing northeast so that I can receive the Springfield PBS station in addition to most of the Connecticut stations.
The new owner of WRNT and WTXX also represents music artists. The primary channel is running a promo that it will soon be showing music videos in the morning along with weather forecasts. WRNT has already shown the first episode of a program done in Hartford (possibly in Bushnell Park) that features a psychic medium giving readings to people who walk up to her booth. The show is called "The Pop-Up Psychic". Another ongoing local show, "Just Eat It", visits Hartford restaurants. These programs look like that they have been produced in HD, but because channel 32 is broadcast in 480i, the shows are in standard definition with black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.
When these local shows aren't on, the station shows the AMGTV network - but then the audio is out of sync and the picture is not as sharp as it could be. The channel runs some well-produced top-of-the-hour computer animated station identifications. These IDs show the call letters and Hartford; no channel number is indicated.
On the secondary channel, 32-2, there is a network aimed toward natives of India - the DIYA network. There is no information in the electronic program guide for WRNT, so programs can't be time-shifted easily with the off-air DVR. In addition to the Hartford and Springfield stations, the company also owns a station in Providence, Rhode Island - WCRN, channel 25.1.

The station is at 6 Central Row in Hartford. It broadcasts from the WCCC radio station tower on Albany Avenue in West Hartford, and the Springfield station broadcasts from the same tower that Meredith's WSHM (CBS 3) transmits from (in Wilbraham).
