Retro TV has been moved to 14.3 and Tuff is gone. IMO, no great loss. WHKY transmitted it at such low resolution it was often difficult to watch.
Well sadly I guess this really means the end of This in Charlotte since it would seem that Fox must have given it up. WHKY does a really poor job of providing a signal through a good portion of Mecklenburg county and it's pretty impossible to receive through much of the DMA. If you live in York, Union, Cabarrus, Rowan, and points south of CLT, better look for alternatives.
We had postulated that FOX would drop this station along with Antenna TV and it looks as if this is coming true.
(Edit: WHKY really doesn't seem to understand aspect ratio. This is forced at 16:9 and it is a 4:3 station. On the other hand they are showing Heartland at 4:3 and it should be 16:9. Maybe they are just trying to annoy their viewers.)
Do you think before you type.
All 4 WHKY channels are 16x9
It is my decision to run that way and it is all about the money.
More and more of the commercials that pay the bills are 16x9
Plus nothing I could would ever make you happy, so I don't try.
This is why most of the people that make a living running a TV station don't post anything here now.
I think several of you that post on this site should start a fantasy TV station web site.
I would like to see how many days or hours you would last with the off the wall ideas you have for TV.
Some of us have been at this for a long time, and have come through some bad times, but we are still around!
