Looks like Retro TV's problems go beyond losing Mako-owned affiliates. I was in Oklahoma last weekend and discovered KTUL has switched their 8.3 subchannel from Retro to Antenna TV.

I didn't do an exhaustive search of either Tulsa or OKC TV stations, so I suppose it's possible that Retro popped up somewhere else; but given what's been going on here, it doesn't seem likely. They probably can only afford carriage by the cheapest (and in our case, poorly run) LPTV stations now.

To be blunt I don't expect Retro to last much longer. They really took a hit when they lost access to the NBC Universal shows several years ago, but when they added Doctor Who and MST3K, I thought they might make a comeback. But with so many other classic TV diginets on the air by then (Cozi, Decades, Antenna, and MeTV of course), I guess it was too little too late.

Retro TV: There's just no substitute for Off Beat Cinema, and the local "Mighty Taco" and "Terrapin Station" ads from Buffalo NY.
