The first thing I remember seeing with Garner in it was Support Your Local Sheriff when I was a kid in the summer of 1970. Saw it in a movie theater on EielsonAir Force Base in Fairbanks, AK. At the time it was a vast SAC military base and the 1st line of defense against the Soviets should they launch a bomber nuclear attack on the USA. That base and the James Garner movie were the two things I remember about that summer.

Maybe more on topic, I also remember the local TV did not have up to date sports or national news or programming. Since civilian TV satellite was still in its infancy, and no TV telephone feeds, everything had to be shipped to the local TV station on tape. So all the football games & TV shows were several days to a week old.

Before the late 1950s when Videotape existed, TV stations have to record network shows on Kinescope film so they could show it outside the network feed and mostly in the West Coast too. It's a shame they don't make Kinescopes anymore.

Antenna TV, Tribune Broadcasting’s digital multicast network, announce a new affiliate for the network in Charlotte when Bahakel Communications’ WCCB-TV launches Antenna TV on its multicast channel 18.2 beginning 8/15.
Antenna TV, which is now available on 88 affiliates across the U.S. reaching 71% of TV households, features a lineup of classic favorites such as: Three’s Company , Too Close for Comfort, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, Dennis the Menace, Father Knows Best, Bachelor Father, Hazel, The Partridge Family, Sanford and Son, Maude, Diff’rent Strokes, WKRP in Cincinnati, All in the Family, Good Times, The Three Stooges, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, The Jack Benny Program, The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, Gidget, The Flying Nun, It Takes a Thief and Antenna TV Theater, a movie block featuring MGM and Sony movies.
“WCCB is excited to team with Tribune Broadcasting in bringing Antenna TV to the Charlotte market. It is a perfect complement to our existing entertainment programming,” said Jim White VP/GM WCCB.
Antenna TV is available as a digital multicast channel on 88 affiliates across the U.S. reaching 71% of TV households, including WPIX-TV (11.2) New York, KTLA-TV (5.2) Los Angeles, and WGN-TV (9.2) Chicago.

The real shame is how many kinescopes still exist. Not a lot.
Almost all of Dumont's programs produced on TV cameras are gone. A great many programs from the other networks are lost, too.
Storing programs in any format costs a bit of money.
Just as bad is how many programs recorded on early VTR's are gone. All but a few minutes of the Tonight show from New York (Paar and Carson), recorded on videotape, were erased to reuse the tape. When Carson moved the show to California and got hold of production, his people archived the show.

I am so happy Antenna TV is coming back to Charlotte! I actually got an E-mail from them today after I sent them one a while back:

Antenna TV is happy to announce that starting Friday, August 15th, we will be available over-the-air with an indoor or outdoor antenna on WCCB 18.2 in the Charlotte area.

Please contact your cable provider and request they add WCCB 18.2 Antenna TV to their channel lineup.

Thanks,
Kari
Antenna TV

Thank you to WCCB which will now be Charlotte's home of my two favorite digital broadcast networks. Now I just hope Charter adds it again in the near future!

Wish we had an AntennaTV subchannel in Greenville, SC DMA since the market is lacking diversity also there's no Bounce subchannel affiliate either in our market. Fortunately, I get AntennaTV over the air via Augusta, GA's WRDW 12.3 since I get a good signal of the adjacent Augusta, GA locals over the air with an outdoor antenna.

Glad to see Antenna TV is coming back, I love several of the shows they air. Even happier to have it on WCCB, which comes in better than WJZY for me.

I assume this means QVC is out?

I am glad Antenna TV is coming back, but unfortunately I do not receive reliable reception of WCCB at my location. I was able to see it on 46.2. But I keep hoping a GSP station may eventually pick it up. My 2 favorites are Antenna TV and MeTV. Which fortunately I do get 7.2 .

So does this mean WCCB will have 4 subchannels, or that one will go? QVC or MeTV.

Personally I find MeTV to be of much higher caliber than Antenna TV. Of the two I'd rather keep MeTV. Antenna TV makes very few changes to it's programming and hence becomes very stale after a while.

QVC. - don't see the point in it.

Classic Dr. Who is coming to Retro TV. If any of you were around in the 1980s you might remember this show being shown on UNCTV in the afternoons.

The local affiliate is WHKY 14.3 (I think.)

MeTV is without a doubt the best sub-channel we have in Charlotte. I just hope, hope, hope they don't ruin it. TVLand started out great too, until the people who run it, literally destroyed it. What does a home makeover show have to do with classic television? And they take a 30-minute sitcom that is already cut to a 22-minute run time to get more commercials in, and then increase it to 37 minutes to get even more commercials in. So you end up with 22 minutes of Andy Griffith with 15 minutes of commercials - roughly 60/40.

Thus far, MeTV has stayed consistent, but if they ever start trying to "broaden their appeal", then what we love will all be over.

That said, AntennaTV is a great sub-channel as well. Having them right together on the dial will be a convenience, because I will no longer have to set my "last channel" button to switch between the two - channel up and channel down will work fine. I kind of like the fact that AntennaTV doesn't change their schedule much - an hour of "Archie" and an hour of "Fred" every evening indefinitely would be to my liking.

I believe MeTV and AntennaTV "watch" each other very closely, because they are both keen on the classic tv niche (as opposed to the movie niche on most other sub-channels). An example is that when AntennaTV when to the Friday night movies, MeTV started their made-for-TV movies on Friday night shortly thereafter. Then after AntennaTV dropped it, MeTV quickly stopped theirs as well.

The only think I don't like about Me-TV is when they rapidly speed up certain parts of their programs to fit in more commercials. It is especially noticeable when music is playing. I wish they would just speed up the entire program a little bit (except for maybe the credits) instead of playing some of it at normal speed and some at rapid speed.

Also, our local MeTV affiliate, WCCB 18.3, will sometimes add more local commercials at the end of a commercial break, and when the program comes back on, you can tell they JIP'd it. (joined in progress).

That was clear a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday, when 18.2 ceased QVC for the day and started showing a straight feed of MeTV (as opposed to "MeTV Charlotte" on 18.3). The straight feed on 18.2 had finished the commercial break and the show was back on, while 18.3 was still showing a local commercial, and then JIP'd the next act of the show.

I noticed the same day that 18.3 cut out the entire closing credits for one of the Saturday afternoon westerns to play another commercial. So what 18.3 showed was the last act of one show, several commercials, and then the start of the next show, with no real ending to the show that just went off (but the straight feed on 18.2 did broadcast the closing credits).

Perhaps WCCB will correct the aspect ratio for Antenna TV. It was always zoomed in to fill up the screen on WJZY.

The problem with antenna TV on WJZY was they cut down the display resolution to something somewhat less that 4:3. I assume that whatever device you were watching it on, got confused and tried to "improve" it. The true picture being transmitted, displayed correctly, was noticeably smaller than standard SD.

Fortunately they didn't do this with Movies!. However they have done what WHKY has done and blown everything up to 16:9 on a feed that only shows 4:3. Maybe Movies! has a true 16:9 feed, but WJZY isn't using it.

It makes for horrible viewing without manual intervention. I sometimes wonder if the technicians who make these decisions actually take the time to watch what they are transmitting on a regular retail TV. Maybe they don't care or maybe their chain is being yanked by someone who doesn't.

If WCCB transmits AntennaTV at 720x480 like MeTV, it will be a very nice improvement over what it had on WJZY.

Movies! is provided to affiliates in 16:9. If WJZY isn't using it that way, it's on the station, not the network.

Sorry about that..Not intentionally we don't..That violates the carriage agreements with programmers..and annoys viewers as you say too! I forwarded your comments on to programming, seems there were some format changes that were missed causing this to occur.
It should not be occurring again if the log is done correctly so that the automation knows exactly what to do when.. We generate 8 live program streams from here under automation,
so monitoring each one intently all the time is just not practical.

As to MeTv on QVC, that is intentional in agreement with MeTv on Saturdays to fulfill FCC Childrens E/I programming requirements. Antenna will provide their own once we transition. Despite the much needed http://www.letsmove.gov/ Anti-Obesity campaign, we still have to provide more Tv for kids to watch. I really like this one, it says it all. I think this kid is present here on the forum.

Thank you for the feedback and additional information. I have seen the MeTV children's programming Saturday mornings on 18.2, and figured it was to fulfill the requirements by the Feds. But there was one particular Saturday a few weeks ago when something else was going on in the afternoon. The same westerns were on both 18.3 and 18.2. 18.2 was clearly a direct feed from the MeTV network. It said MeTV in the corner, instead of MeTV Charlotte on 18.3. 18.3 had extra commercials at the end of a commercial break, while the very same western program was already back on 18.2 since the commercial break ended sooner. But this only happened that one day that I know of. QVC was back on 18.2 the next day.

It's definitely a 4:3 picture that has been stretched to 16:9 and distorted as a result. They originally had it set to 4:3 so the aspect was correct. Maybe in order to do it they were using some sort of truncation process that cut back the 16:9 format assuming Movies! was sending this format. This process occasionally cuts off part of the logo and titles so it was easy to notice.

My guess, is that when they switched the aspect to 16:9, they forgot to revert the picture back to its original state non-truncated state.

This is assuming of course, that Movies! is actually transmitting a 16:9 formated picture, and not a 4:3 that has been stretched to 16:9.

Movies! is provided in a proper 16:9 format. I've watched it before on WDCA here and it is correct.

Here in the Eastern part of the state, we get Movies! on WCTI, and we do not get it in 16:9.

WJZY apparently has done a whack job on it then. It's surprising because they normally run a pretty good technical operation and these days, can't be wanting for resources.

I believe that Bethenny woman will be making a special celebrity appearance in Charlotte at the opening of that new outlet mall.

It would be nice if WCNC add Cozi TV, but I don't know what their plans are. They are not NBC O&O, so they may do something different. As several Gannett stations have Weather Nation.

Good news to hear about the return of Antenna TV!

I really enjoyed watching shows like Bachelor Father (never knew it existed until last year), and McHale's Navy.

The only bad part is that WCCB does not always come in that well on my government box via aluminum rabbit ears.

Got to install an upstairs antenna and get me one of them new-fangled flat screen TVs. I hear the Insignia brand (Best Buy) is pretty good.
