Nice to hear from the resident repository of sarcasm.
Not that it is simple, but adding another
sub channel is not rocket science, and has been done by numerous stations across the USA and the rest of the world using DT.
Notably even our independent/ religious here in the GSP DMA (WGGS DT ) has TWO sub channels. And you can be sure that they have a VERY tight budget to operate on.
To that I would add I wonder how many people ever watched
THiS TV, and how many more will miss it? The same
low budget or tired movies run over and over, and over again.
And also many of which are on cable outlets as well.
I wonder how much revenue was generated on that one?
Of course I look at a weather product as a "public service"
category. Which all stations have to make some effort to
provide to the local community, it may not make much revenue but it does help to satisfy requirements for a station to keep their license each year.
: So you are fairly sure that Hearst will not be
adding a second sub channel at any of their owned stations in the near future?
At least Movies! will be a better product than THiS TV.
Do you expect to have testing of Movies! going OTA on 4-2 in a test phase before Jan 1st? If so could you hint about when that might be?
