Yeah I saw that HeartTV link when researching for this post and I am not so sure that is "the" HeartTV that may be coming to WYGA. First of all, it's from the UK. (hence the co.uk URL) There are several more "HeartTV's" or "Heart TV's" out there as well. Don't know which of them, if any, will be on channel 16.
And there are about 150 different variations of "Retro TV" networks in the US alone, and at least one major one from Mexico. (probably the one we'll be getting
) It wouldn't make much sense for Retro Television to air the same content on two different channels, but then again, they have done it before with WANN/WTBS. But Luken Networks seem to have a pretty solid relationship with the owners of 26 & 32 and have been airing their networks exclusively on Prism channels here in Atlanta for quite sometime. (Tuff TV, Retro TV, My Family TV/Family Channel, PBJ, Frost Great Outdoors, etc) I am guessing that channel 16 may eventually broadcast an entirely different lineup of horrible old public-domain shows that nobody watched when they were new. Sort of like 14.4's "Shop" Infomercials Channel and 32.3's "SHOP" completely separate infomercials channel.
Combine those with 40.1, 40.2, 40.3, 40.4, 45.1, 14.5 and more I think Atlanta has enough all-infomercial channels but that's a whole other rant I may broadcast in Spanish only!
