Journal Broadcasting, parent of Las Vegas KTNV-13, has sued The Cool network for a quarter million in unpaid fees related to the affiliation with Journals WTMJ Milwaukee. Journal is replacing The Cool with the Live Well network for that city. Could we see the same happen here on KTNV 13.3?
There could be an announcement coming within the next month from Antenna TV concerning this market. Or it could be just hopeful speculation.
Bounce will launch Monday Sept 26 on KGNG 47.3. I suspect it will do very well.
Pegasus still shows that Las Vegas is an intended 2011 affiliate city.
Universal Sports, aired on KSNV 3.3, is headed for a cable/sat only situation, leaving the 3.3 sub-channel available.
KHDF-19 has requested a bump-up in power from 8kw to 9.6kw.
KVTE-35 has a CP filed with the FCC for 15kw from their Lady Luck Casino transmitter location.
Still waiting for MeTv and hope Antenna TV will launch here in Vegas sometime soon. If either of these were foreign language or infomercial channels, we'd probably already have them.
With that said, I hope that when Antenna TV does eventually come to Vegas, it's subchannel is with an established network. If it lands on 18 or 47, I'll probably never see it. I have Directv and their OTA tuner DOES NOT scan channels. They use a database and incorporate the local channels into their programming guide. They only use network channels, ie NBC, FOX, CBS, CW, etc. I cannot receive channels like 18 and 47 through Directv. As a result, I don't receive RTV and other good channels. I realize that I can get another antenna and hook that up to my TV's antenna port and receive those channels that way, but I would really like the ability to record them.
