You know, when Bounce was first announced a year ago, it was speculated here that ThisTV would be given the boot.
It would be my guess that Bounce is here to stay. Given the very public way that Raycom announced that it was the first to carry Bounce, the statements from the NAB about the importance of "niche" programming, and the fact that Bounce is owned by Martin Luther King III & Andrew Young, it isn't going anywhere soon. At least it sounds like a counter to the idiot running the FCC who wants to give TV spectrum to the phone companies.
It sure would be nice if WSOC would do something about providing at least one subchannel on it's main (aside from that silly weather channel) or on channel 64 where there is essentially no programming at all. Maybe they haven't yet learned about weather on the internet. I can push one button on my remote and almost instantly Weather Underground is displayed on the TV with the 5 day forecast, current radar and satellite, current temperature from the nearby weather stations, and any messages from the NWS.
I was hoping that WJZY/WMYT would be bringing another new channel to the area like TheCoolTV instead of back filling one that was removed.
