(IE: Men, women, blacks, Muslims, Christians, old people, foreighners, tourists, or all of the above)
Good to always rescan every couple of months, never know what will show up. As for targeted audience channels, I have found ones I like. I find Bounce TV programming great. The tourist channel is also informative. And if it wasn't for the Univision feed, I wouldn't be able to see Formula One racing live.

Oh, and LAFF is a targeted channel too.

Looks like the same clip that's running on the Laff website. I think it is set to go live tomorrow. Looks like Grit will be going live on 46-3 sometime soon. I started getting guide data for it yesterday.

Wikipedia has info on Decades. As of now Atlanta is not
listed.
The way Subs are starting to pop-up all over the place --in 40 days will see. If you read carefully over at wiki Decades did soft launches earlier in the year. Looked like a lot of testing.

It's amazing how fast these subchannels are popping up all of the sudden. I read an article somewhere recently (wish I could remember the link so I could post it) that these retro based subchannels are turning into pretty decent money makers for the broadcasters. I guess that explains why we are seeing a deluge of them. Also, I am impressed with the PQ on channel 46 after adding the Cozi and Grit subs...all three look really great. Wish I could say the same with the subs on channels 2 and 5.

Yea
46 is 1080i
2&5 720p


I don't know how much that really affects the 480i broadcast that they all use.
Except for channel 34 which I think has 2 on 1080i.
When 2.2 first aired it really looked good.
Did the Tech's TURN-UP the Juice!!
Grit really has looked good i'll agree with you .


Meetings on ATSC 3.0.
Maybe the Broadcasters know something we don't. Building up on all these subs.
Knowing that the new system will Be 4k on the primary channel and near 1080
on the subs.

It would seem logical that the subs on 1080i channels would have poorer PQ since the 1080 signal uses more bandwidth...not the cases here. I could have sworn that Cozi on 46-2 was in 720p because it was so clear, but it is only 480. I really like Movies! on 5-2, but the PQ is so bad that it is like trying to watch a Youtube video on a dial-up connection. Lots of pixelation.

It is good to see the new sub-channels. An article I was reading mentioned that a lot of sub-channel programming is directed to the over 40 age group since many of the cable networks are programming for the 25 to 40 year olds. I have also talked to many people who have just had it with the expensive programming of CATV and Satellite services. Many, like me, are pruning expenses prior to retirement. With OTA plus a couple of streaming services we are completely satisfied. It is nice to have the additional subs, but we got by with only 3 channels in black & white when I was a youngster. I get more on today's OTA channels than when cable first came to the area.

I remember cable was to have no ad's. 1971 we were the 1st in our neighbor hood to get it.
The main thing was stable channels. Trying to pick up channel 17 was awful. Cable made it much better.


Trying to get the Decades Binge Calendar to come over.

Ah! I remember the early days of channel 17 when it was originally WTCG in the '70s. I remember lots of wrestling and Bill Tush.

I remember it well..........
We had a sleep over or spend the night as it was called in
the 1960's.Mom had just WON a 19" GE TV. Dad had made a tv table for it.
We all watched for awhile then BANG...BAM...BOOM.


The tv was next to stairs 1 of the legs was caught by cover
under it.
The Tube survived!!
Cleaned it up put it back on TV Table. It worked for 2 more years. 1st thing I saw on the tv was the 17 Jay-Bird for
WJRJ.
Then we got a 23" Zenith Console Color tv.
Zenith---"The Quality goes in before the name Goes on".
