KVFW didn't last long before going back to zero channels again. Not surprised, but once again disappointed
Back on tonight, May 17. Retro TV fans watch while you still can - no telling how long it'll last!
But here's something interesting: American Sports Network on KPFW channel 18.4? Right now they're showing highlights of college basketball and ice hockey games from earlier this year.
KPFW seems to have given up on their Spanish religious programming. In fact, it appears the church that owned it has turned it over to "DTV America Corporation
Also, prior to the sale, they got a construction permit to move to a tower in Hutchins, TX with a much lower antenna height and power (4 kW ERP), which will make their signal much more challenging to receive. TVFool.com hasn't picked up the change yet, and fiddling with my antenna indicates they may still be broadcasting from downtown. But something changed Monday afternoon: Bob Nelson's graphs show he's not receiving it at all anymore, and my signal is now very weak and breaks up.
I'm puzzled by a site change at this point. They have to erect a channel 18 antenna at their new site, but they can't stay on 18 after repacking; when that happens, they'll just have to take it down and put up a new (probably VHF) antenna. Seems like a waste. But maybe they couldn't keep up the lease payments on the downtown tower and had to come up with something quick.
Anyway, if you can receive it, they now have 7 subchannels. 18.1-18.3 are all three airing the same infomercial channel; 18.4 is American Sports Network (the only one likely to be of much interest); 18.5 is a different infomercial channel; 18.6 is Shop LC, same as 34.2; and 18.7 is QVC Plus.
