Heard over on the DFW LPTV Changes thread at Radio Discussions (yes, that thread IS still alive) that KAZD 55-4 is now vacant.
Tuning into that channel, I see the following on-screen (in English and Spanish):
This channel can be leased, please call (214) 754-7008
Any chance we can contact HOT TV to see if they can set up shop on a full-power station?
Obviously Retro TV is out because Trip says they ink deals with affiliates rather than lease channel space.
On another note, is anybody noticing a decline in quality in KDFI's OTA signal? Sometimes my TV will say the signal is "bad" even though I still get a steady signal, and in extremely rare cases, the signal will pixelate for no reason. (A Lewisville bandscan shows the SS at 87 and the MER at 82.) Too bad, since I LOOOVE the MOVIES! channel (and on occasion, Bounce as well, though they'll move to KSTR or KUVN next year). It does not affect my viewing experience of KDFI, however.
